New Delhi: Senior Advocate Ram Jethmalani here today had quit as the counsel of Aam Adami Party chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in the defamation case filed by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
While interacting with the media Ram Jethmalani said “I have quit the case of Arvind Kejriwal. He should release the letter, which I sent to him.”
Furthermore, while giving out the reason for quitting he said that ”Kejriwal had ‘lied’ that he did not give him instructions on the case, but the fact was that he did.”
The union minister for finance Arun Jaitley earlier this year had filed a criminal defamation case against Kejriwal and five other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders–Ashutosh, Kumar Vishwas, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chaddha and Deepak Bajpai.
In his complaint, Arun Jaitley had accused Arvind Kejriwal and others of defaming him in a controversy regarding the DDCA and sought Rs 10 crore as damages. Arun Jaitley was president of the DDCA for over a decade, notes the The Tribune (TT).
