India Defamation case: Kejriwal apologises to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley

Defamation case: Kejriwal apologises to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley

The written apology was tendered by Aam Aadmi Party’s Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Raghav Chaddha along with the party chief Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday tendered an apology to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley apparently for his allegations in the defamation case.

The written apology was tendered by Aam Aadmi Party’s Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Raghav Chaddha along with the party chief Kejriwal.

However, sources confirmed that defamation suit filed by Jaitley has not been withdrawn, adding that a joint application for decree based on apology has been filed by Kejriwal and other AAP leaders.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal continued his apology spree, now saying “sorry” to Union finance minister and BJP leader Arun Jaitley in a defamation case he has filed against him.

Joining Kejriwal in the apology were three of his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) colleagues Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha and Ashutosh. All four, in a joint letter, apologized to the BJP leader.

Jaitley had filed a Rs 10-crore defamation suit against Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders Raghav Chadha, Kumar Vishwas, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Deepak Bajpai. All six alleged financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) when Jaitley was its president.

“These allegations made by me were based on information and papers furnished to me by certain individuals who represented to have first-hand insight into the affairs of DDCA. However, I have recently discovered that the information and the imputations contained therein are unfounded and unwarranted and I was clearly misinformed into making these allegations,” wrote Kejriwal and his colleagues in the apology to Jaitley.

Kejriwal and his colleagues then said they withdraw all allegations against Jaitley.

“I offer my sincere apology to you and your family members for any harm caused to your reputation as a consequence of my allegations,” the AAP leaders’ joint apology further said.

Kejriwal’s apology spree began last month, with “sorries” to the BJP’s Nitin Gadkari, the Congress party’s Kapil Sibal and the Akali Dal’s Bikram SIngh Majithia.
