Jaitley had filed an Rs 10-crore defamation suit against Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders — Raghav Chadha, Kumar Vishwas, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Deepak Bajpai. All six alleged financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association when Jaitley was its president.
Kejriwal’s apology spree began last month, with “sorries” to the BJP’s Nitin Gadkari, the Congress party’s Kapil Sibal and the Akali Dal’s Bikram Singh Majithia.
On March 19, Kejriwal and Gadkari submitted a joint application in Delhi’s Patiala House court seeking withdrawal of a defamation case filed by the latter. The application was submitted after Kejriwal wrote a letter to Gadkari in which he regretted making defamatory remarks against the leader.
“I made certain statements, without regard to its verifiability, which seem to have hurt you.” wrote the AAP chief to Gadkari.
