Dissident AAP leader Kumar Vishwas has apologised to former finance minister Arun Jaitley in the DDCA defamation case.
A flash by ANI said that Kumar had written to Arun Jaitley tendering apology and seeking withdrawal of the civil defamation case filed by the minister against him. Jaitley’s lawyer, added ANI, said ,”we have accepted it.”
Earlier this month, Vishwas had said that he regretted damage caused to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the defamation case filed by the latter. The poet-politician also asked the Delhi High Court if Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had lied before he apologised to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley or whether the reason for his apology amounted to a lie.
Kejriwal and four other AAP leaders namely Raghav Chadha, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Deepak Bajpai have already tendered unequivocal apology to the finance minister.
