Arun Jaitley accepts Arvind Kejriwal's apology over DDCA issue

"Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Raghav Chadha apologize to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the defamation case he had filed against them", ANI tweeted.

Jaitley had filed criminal and civil defamation suits against Kejriwal for saying that he was engaged in financial irregularities and bungling as the president of the Delhi & District Cricket Association.

Jaitley had filed a criminal defamation case against the AAP leaders before a magisterial court in December 2015, denying the charges and claiming that they affected his reputation. Further they have offered their honest apology to the complainant and his family members for any harm caused to the complainant's reputation as a outcome of the allegation made by the said accused.

Earlier in the day, Aam Aadmi Party leaders Arvind Kejriwal, Ashutosh, Raghav Chadha and Sanjay Singh apologised to Jaitley for making unverified accusations against him.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the Delhi Assembly session on Monday, Social Welfare Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam said that Mr. Kejriwal's decision to apologise was aimed at ending the various cases against him so that he could focus on governance.

Asked to clarify what he meant when he called Jaitley a crook, Jethmalani said it was based on instructions from his client, Kejriwal.

"Though we belong to two different political parties, I believe that should end the unsavoury litigations between us and serve the people of our country to the best of your ability", the AAP leader wrote.

The joint application was mentioned before Justice Manmohan by advocates Manik Dogra and Anupam Srivastava, who appeared for Jaitley and Kejriwal, respectively.

Sources say that Jaitley has accepted the apology tendered by the AAP leaders and is likely to withdraw the defamation suits he filed against them. The court agreed to list the matter for hearing before the appropriate bench tomorrow if no technical objection is raised by the registry.

Mr Vishwas has been at the odds with the party leadership for some time now and shares a very cold relationship with his once "close friend" Mr Kejriwal.

Last month, Kejriwal had apologised to Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Akali Dal leader Bikram Majithia, Congress leader Kapil Sibal and his lawyer-son Amit.
