A BJP youth wing leader on Thursday sought Re 1 as compensation from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and AAP spokesperson Sanjay Singh for projecting him as the person who assaulted former minister Kapil Mishra. BJP worker, Ankit Bhardwaj, in his plea told the Tees Hazari court that since he has no knowledge of the valuable assets of the defendants, he is demanding Re 1 as compensation.

“That the plaintiff (Bhardwaj) assesses the damages at Rs one crore but has no knowledge of any valuable assets of the defendants (Kejriwal and Singh). So the plaintiff limits his claim to Re 1,” the plea said.

Ankit Bhardwaj, a state executive member of Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha (BJYM), had earlier filed a criminal defamation petition against the AAP leaders for “wrongly taking” his name in the media by describing him as the person who had assaulted Mishra on May 10.

Earlier, Ankit Bhardwaj had filed a criminal defamation complaint against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and AAP leader Sanjay Singh for linking Bhardwaj to the attack on sacked Kapil Mishra. Mishra was on a dharna on May 10 when he was attacked. While Mishra was on a fast, a person named Ankit Bhardwaj allegedly slapped him. The attacker, it later turned out, was not the Ankit Bhardwaj of BJYM, but someone else. Bhardwaj’s complaint refers to his namesake (the assailant) as an AAP activist.

    Even Rs 1 is more. He should have asked 1 paise, the real value of Kejriwal.

    This commentator recalls a famous case in Hyderabad Karnataka area, where a Judicial or Executive Magistrate of a sub-division fined Re.1 for misdeameanour, on a sitting MLA or MP, and the said fined individual spent years in costly lawyer fees fighting the case, right upto. Highest level. He finally shelled the fine to close the case.😀
