Arvind Kejriwal's apology spree: 3 down, 30 more to go?

Arvind Kejriwal's apology spree: 3 down, 30 more to go?

In a press conference held on May 15, 2013, Kejriwal had alleged conflict of interest on part of Sibal, saying he had appeared in the court for a telecom firm when his father was the communications minister. "I have nothing personal against you, and I regret the same". "I regret the same", Kejriwal said in the letter written to Gadkari on March 16. By Monday evening, Kejriwal was let off by the court in the two cases.

The development came days after the AAP leader regretted having accused Akali Dal leader Bikram Majithia of drug trade without evidence. The apology to Mr Majithia is the second case in seven months where Chief Minister Kejriwal has retracted his allegation.

During the court proceedings, Jaitley filed another Rs 10 crore defamation suit against Kejriwal after his lawyer Ram Jethmalani used an objectionable word for the minister.

The IE report, quoting sources, said that AAP leadership was particularly concerned with the criminal defamation case filed against Kejriwal by Union finance minister Arun Jaitley. Now, in a letter, Kejriwal apologized to road, transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari for calling him one of the most corrupt politicians.

In 2013, Gadkari had filed a criminal defamation case against Kejriwal.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the party will apologise to people who they have hurt. "Everything is forgotten now, we will move ahead".

On a day of fast paced developments in the court, the apologies by Kejriwal were followed by two joint applications in the separate cases seeking judicial indulgence for their amicable settlement. We're here to serve the people, we do not have the time to go to courts for such issues. We are here to work for people. The AAP Punjab leaders termed Kejriwal's actions as a "letdown".

His apology to Majithia had led the AAP's Punjab unit president, Bhagwant Mann, and co-president Aman Arora to put in their papers, and ally Lok Insaaf Party to break ties. This had not gone down well with several senior AAP leaders.

An AAP MLA also voiced the party's fears that the Centre wants to put Kejriwal behind bars so that he is unable to fight elections.
