In late January, Essel Group had reached an agreement with the lenders on servicing its debt.
Earlier, the group's stocks had crashed by one-third following which Chandra blamed aggressive bets on infra plays, which spun out of control after the IL&FS crisis and acquisition of Videocon's D2H business.
He also blamed some negative forces for sabotaging his efforts to raise money through a strategic sale in the flagship company Zee Entertainment Enterprises.
