December 22, 2015 2:40 pm

New Delhi, Dec 22 (ANI): With the Aam Aadmi Party constituting a committee to probe the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) irregularities, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Monday said that the entire process is adopted by the former to deflect the attention of people from a defamation suit filed by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Earlier in the day, the Finance Minister has filed civil defamation suit in Delhi High Court of Rs. 10 crores against Kejriwal and other AAP leaders.

Finance Minister sues Kejriwal for slander

December 22, 2015 2:40 pm

New Delhi, Dec 21 (ANI): Finance Minister Arun Jaitley sued Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday for slander, escalating a battle between the ruling BJP and the opposition Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that has stalled key reform legislations in parliament. Jaitley’s office said he had filed the civil and criminal defamation cases against Kejriwal and five members of his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Arvind Kejriwal, who routed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in state elections earlier this year, accused Jaitley last week of fraud while running the affairs of the DDCA from 2003 to 2013. Jaitley told members of the lower house of parliament that the allegations were false. Kejriwal alleged that the raid was Jaitley’s attempt to scuttle his investigation into alleged corruption in the DDCA. A 2014 inquiry into the DDCA unearthed auditing errors and unaccounted for expenses that were sanctioned during Jaitley’s tenure.Meanwhile, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said the party will expose this scam.
