After apologizing to Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has now extended an apology to union transport minister Nitin Gadkari and former union minister and Congress leader Kapil Sibal.
Kejriwal has written an apology letter to Nitin Gadkari for statements made ‘without regard to verifiability’ requesting to put the past behind. Kejriwal has enlisted Gadkari in his list of corrupt politicians.
“I have nothing personal against you. I regret the same. Let us put the incident behind us and bring the court proceedings to a closure. I suggest we should put our energy to serve the people of this country,” said Kejriwal.
Arvind Kejriwal has also apologized to Kapil Sibal. He had alleged that the latter had conflict in seeking to revise a tax demand on telecom major brand Vodafone. Following this, Sibal and his son Amit Sibal had filed a defamation suit against the Aam Aadmi Party leader for his allegations.
Last week, Kejriwal had also extended an apology to Bikram Singh Majithia for his statements made in past alleging the latter’s involvement in drug trade. This gave rise to dissent in the party’s Punjab unit with AAP leaders criticizing Kejriwal’s move to apologise to Majithia.
