KEJRIWAL & 4 Other AAP Leaders Apologise To FM Arun Jaitley

UNION Minister for Finance Arun Jaitley has accepted Delhi Chief Minister and ruling AAP’s supremo Arvind Kejriwal’s apology for making allegations of corruption against him when he headed the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).Delhi based Jaitley, a lawyer turned politician, who was also Opposition Leader in the Rajya Sabha before becoming Finance Minister and now Leader of the House, has received a letter written by Kejriwal and four others praying for apology. Kejriwal wrote: “I unequivocally withdraw all the allegations made by me in question whether in print, electronic or social media against you. 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 Finance Minister had asked for Rs 10 crore as damages after Kejriwal and several other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders accused him of corruption during his 13-year stint at the DDCA.Jaitley filed a second case last year after Kejriwal’s lawyer Ram Jethmalani used a slur while cross-examining him and said the term had been authorised by his client.”…I categorically state that the disparaging and malicious statements made by Mr. Ram Jethmalani, the Senior Advocate representing me, were without my knowledge and/or instructions,” he added. The other AAP leaders, who have apologised to Jaitley, include AAP MP Sanjay Singh, senior leader Ashutosh, Deepak Bajpai and spokesperson Raghav Chadha.”Though we belong to two different political parties, I believe that we should end the unsavoury litigations between us and serve the people of our country to the best of our abilities,” the letter stated. Kejriwal called a maverick politico who used to make allegations against important personalities and then ran away, had first apologised to former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia alleging that he was involved in drug racket during SAD BJP rule last month and then to Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari and ex- Law Minister and Congress leader Kapil Sibal’s son Amit Sibal. The allegation against Majithia was one of the major issues highlighted by the AAP during Punjab assembly elections resulting in the defeat of the SAD-BJP government. But drug menace still continues in the border State.Incidentaly, Majithia was Information, Public Relations and  Environmental Minister in the SAD-BJP Governmnet.His  sister is Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Union Minister for Food Processing , wife of then  Deputy CM and SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal.
