Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologises to Kapil Sibal


Making yet another U-turn, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday apologized to BJP leader Nitin Gadkari for making unverified allegations of corruption against him after which the Union Minister withdrew his defamation case.

Kejriwal earlier apologised to Congress leader Kapil Sibal and his son Amit Sibal who he said benefited in a conflict of interest case, saying that Amit appeared in the court for Vodafone when his father was the communications minister. The apology comes just days after the Delhi leader offered an apology to Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia + in connection with comments made of his involvement in the drug trade.

"I made certain statements, without regard to its verifiability, which seem to have hurt you and therefore you have filed a defamation case against me".

Expressing his regret over "unverified allegations" against Gadkari, Arvind urged him to forget the incident and close the court proceedings. "I regret the same", the letter written on March 16 said.

Punjab AAP lawmaker Bhagwant Mann and three others last week quit from the party's post in protest. Many leaders also voiced their demand for a separate identity for Punjab unit of the Aam Aadmi Party due to the ongoing apology issue.

Kejriwal is also facing a criminal defamation case against Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

In 2014, Gadkari had filed the defamation suit against Kejriwal after he named him in a list of "corrupt politicians". The finance minister had sought Rs 10 crore in compensation for the alleged defamatory allegations made by Kejriwal.

Both Gadkari and Sibal have accepted the apology and both leaders will submit applications in court to request withdrawal of the respective cases.
