After Finance Minister Arun Jaitley stated he would file defamation cases against several AAP leaders for allegation of corruption against him when he was at the helm in DDCA, the Aam Aadmi Party today said that they would not get bogged down by such “intimidatory tactics”.
“We are not going to be bogged down by such intimidatory tactics. We are privy to Arun Jaitley’s history. Moreover after today’s expose, the whole country has come to know about the truth and we are committed to fight against corruption whatever it takes,” AAP leader Deepak Bajpai told PTI.
“Jaitley don’t threaten us with defamation… Answer the questions we had asked. You will take us to court, we will take you to people’s court… Let me repeat Mr Jaitley – you are the KALMADI of BJP,” another AAP leader Ashutosh said, referring to Suresh Kalmadi of Congress who was accused in the CWG scam.
“Arun Jaitley has no other option and if he has to start defamatory proceedings, he should start with Kirti Azad and Bishen Singh Bedi. People are supporting us in thousands. Will he file cases against everyone. We will not stop exposing the truth and these tactics won’t work,” said AAP leader Kumar Vishwas.
Earlier Jaitley said he will file civil and criminal defamation cases against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and some other AAP leaders Monday. Besides Kejriwal, cases will be filed against Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha, Deepak Bajpayee, AAP leaders, Jaitley said.
