Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal SORRY SPREE continues as he and other AAP leaders apologize to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, AAP leaders Sanjay Singh,Ashutosh and Raghav Chadha apologize to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the defamation case he had filed against them.

In yet another – and perhaps the most high-profile apology, Arvind Kejriwal has written to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and said he is sorry for allegations made against him.

Following is the complete text of the letter.

Dear Shri Arun Jaitley Ji,

I have made certain statements about you in December 2015 and thereafter in connection with your tenure as the President of the Delhi and District Cricket Association. These allegations also form a part of the subject matter of proceedings currently pending adjudication before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court and Ld. CMM, Patiala House Court, New Delhi. 

These allegations were made by me were based on information and papers furnished to me by certain individuals who represented to have first-hand insight into the affairs of DDCA. However, I have recently discovered that the information and the imputations contained therein are unfounded and unwarranted and I was clearly misinformed into the making of these allegations. 

Therefore, I unequivocally withdraw all the allegations made by me in question whether made 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.

With respect to the subject matter of civil suit CS(OS) 236 of 2017 currently pending adjudication before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court. 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. I reaffirm what I have already stated earlier that I do not approve of these disparaging and malicious statements made by Mr.Ram Jethmalani.

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.

Warm Regards,

Arvind Kejriwal


Here are some of the tweets in response to the news which broke out regarding the apology:

Now, Arvind Kejriwal & 3 of his AAP colleagues apologize to Arun Jaitley. Score Board of Apologizes:

1) Gadkari – Twice

2) Avtar

3) Majithia

4) Sibal

5) Jaitley

But still a long way to go as 33 defamation cases are against him in 22 States. He may have a World record of Apologize

Sir please don’t withdraw the defamation suit filed against the habitual offender Arvind Kejriwal . If you do so you will let down lacs of BJP 4India supporters who fought with the troll army of AamAadmiParty when they had levelled the allegations against you.

Thats not enough. They have made allegations many times on TV. I think Arun jaitley should not even consider this. Let the AAPians call for a press meet and announce unconditional apology before all TV channels, then ….

Humble request to you, pls Don’t accept apology of anarchist ArvindKejriwal SanjayAzadSln and raghav_chadha . We want all these AAP goons behind bars. They will continue with their conspiracies & you know well


Jaitley had filed a defamation case against the Delhi Chief Minister for accusing him of corruption during his tenure as the chairman of the Delhi cricket board.

Last month, in a curious and rather unprecedented move by a senior politician, Kejriwal had issued a series of apologies to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and Congress leader Kapil Sibal for making unverified allegations of corruption against them.Reciprocating the gesture, Gadkari and Sibal withdrew the defamation cases filed against Kejriwal.

The AAP convener had also written to Akali Dal leader Bikram Majithia for accusing his of involvement in drug trade without any proof to back the allegations.The apology to Majithia had triggered a virtual rebellion in the AAP Punjab unit, leaing to the resignation of Bhagwant Mann as its Punjab state chief.
