AAP Founder Leader Kumar Vishwas says Arvind Kejriwal is a habitual liar

KUMAR Vishwas ,poet  turned  politician and founder Member of Aaam Aadmi Party , told a Delhi court  his statements against Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on alleged irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) were based on information he had received as a party worker from AAP supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Aravind Kejriwal .“Yaa to unhone (Kejriwal) tab jhoot bola tha yaa abhi bol rahe hai. Ab jab mai kaagzaat maang raha hoon to vo de nahi rahe hai. Ye aadatan jhoota aadmi hai, jiski vajah se abhi ye paristithiyan hai. (Either he lied previously or is lying now. He is not giving the documents. He is a habitual liar due to whom the current situation has been created),” he told the Delhi High Court on Thursday. Regretting the damage and injury caused to Jaitley, Vishwas, who has been sidelined, told Justice R S Endlaw that “personally, he also does not want to take the matter further”.“However, I need to know first, on what ground the allegations were made against Jaitley. Being a small party worker, we need to follow instructions issued by the top leadership,” he said. Vishwas, 48, was present in court pursuant to the court’s April 26 directions. He also claimed that Kejriwal told them he has documents related to the alleged financial irregularities in the DDCA during the BJP leader’s tenure as president from 2000-2013. Kumar Vishwas said that before making any statement or apology, he would like  to ascertain if Kejriwal had lied before he apologised to Jaitley or if the reason for his apology amounted to a lie. Speaking in Hindi, he further told the court he was trying to contact the AAP supremo on the issues, as he was kept in the dark when Kejriwal and the other four AAP leaders decided to issue the apology seeking  withdrawal of the defamation suit  filed by Jaitley  . But Jaitley’s counsel Manik Dogra said he wanted the AAP leader to apologise. He must make it clear whether he stood by the allegation. Vishwas had claimed to have seen the documents while making the accusation. Vishwas said he needed time to decide the statement he will make to dispose of the civil suit against him. The court granted him time till May 28.On April 26, the high court had directed Vishwas to appear before it and explain whether he wants to cross-examine Jaitley. Jaitley had filed a civil defamation suit in December 2015 claiming Rs 10 crore as damages from Kejriwal and the five AAP leaders including Vishwas and Sanjay Singh, MP. The others had tendered an apology last month. The AAP supremo had earlier tendered apology to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari who also filed a defamation suit against Kejriwal.(image courtesy to Wikipedia)
