Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has alleged financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) when Jaitley was the President of DDCA from 2000 to 2013 prompting the minister to lodge defamation cases against them while denying all the allegations.
On August 5 last year, Jaitley has filed a Rs 10 crore defamation suit against Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders Raghav Chadha, Kumar Vishwas, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Deepak Bajpai. All six had made a series of allegations of financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association when Jaitley was its President which adversely affected the reputation of Jaitley.
Both the leaders has moved a joint application before the court to settle their two year old litigation regarding alleged defamatory statements made against the BJP leader after the AAP Supremo Arvind Kejriwal apologised for his remarks.
Apart from Kejriwal, Chadha, Singh, Ashutosh and Bajpai have also apologized for their statements made against Arun Jaitley in connection with the irregularities in DDCA. Court proceedings will be continue against AAP leader Kumar Vishwas as he has not yet tendered an apology.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Samar Vishal after looking the application filed on behalf of both the parties said the court will hear the submission of the application on Tuesday.
