New Delhi, Dec. 22 (ANI): Undeterred by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s decision to slap civil defamation cases against Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP colleagues for allegedly defaming him in connection with the DDCA controversy, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday said it is neither ‘scared’ nor ‘threatened’.
“We are the Aam Aadmi Party people. We have left our jobs to join this party, we are here to fight againt corruption. We are not scared of anything. Who is Jaitley trying to threat. We are not afraid of him,” AAP leader Ashutosh told ANI here.
“We are going to tell the court that time-bound work should be done so that the truth is presented before the people. The country should know the extent of the corruption that Arun Jaitley has done or has not done. He should not threaten us. If people working for the country start coming or going to court to save criminals of corruption, then you can imagine what will happen to our country,” he added.
Jaitley had filed a criminal defamation complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other leaders of AAP for allegedly defaming him in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) controversy before a Delhi court which took cognizance on his plea.
Jaitley’s action comes in the backdrop of attacks on him by Kejriwal and other AAP leaders over alleged irregularities and financial bunglings in Delhi’s cricket body, DDCA, of which he was the president for about 13 years till 2013. (ANI)
