Kejriwal apologizes to Kapil, Amit Sibal, Gadkari for unfounded allegations

Defamation Case Arvind Kejriwal lends apology to Nitin Gadkari

Kejriwal alone is facing several civil and criminal defamation cases in Delhi, Varanasi, Amethi, Punjab, Assam, Maharashtra and Goa, and most of these cases require personal appearances. "I regret the same", Kejriwal said in the letter written to Gadkari on March 16. The second suit was filed after Kejriwal's former counsel Ram Jethmalani allegedly "abused" the BJP leader in open court during the proceedings of the original defamation case. One wonders if Arun Jaitley will be the next leader he will apologise to as the Finance Minister has filed a defamation case against Kejriwal in Delhi court. Last week, Kejriwal retracted his allegation that Bikram Singh Majithia was involved in the drug trade and apologised to the SAD leader. Kejriwal had alleged that Kapil Sibal had a conflict of interest in seeking to revise a tax demand on telecom major Vodafone.

The apologies by Arvind Kejriwal were followed by two joint applications in the separate cases seeking judicial indulgence for their amicable settlement. Meanwhile, deputy CM Manish Sisodia also made a similar application, apologising to Amit Sibal.

Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal on Monday apologized to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal for comments made against them earlier. Jaitley had filed a defamation case against Kejriwal after the AAP leader accused him of corruption during his tenure as the chairman of Delhi's cricket board DDCA.

BJP tears into Rahul Gandhi, dubs his remarks 'rhetoric of a loser'
Reacting to Gandhi's remarks, information and broadcasting minister Irani tweeted, "Rahul Gandhi's hatred for India is astonishing".

As we all know that AAP had successfully registered in Politics in 2015, and soon they captured the 35% Punjab in 2017 Assembly elections, they won 20 seats in Punjab.

His apology to Majithia had led the AAP's Punjab unit president, Bhagwant Mann, and co-president Aman Arora to put in their papers, and ally Lok Insaaf Party to break ties. "We have not spared time for court, we have spared time for us so that we could fight for people", he said.

After this, 10 AAP Punjab MLAs came and met Kejriwal on Sunday, reported The India Express. We are here to work for people. The "meek surrender" by Kejriwal drew flak from Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Punjab unit leaders who termed Kejriwal's step a "letdown". "We don't want to fight the battle of ego".
