Mr Kejriwal, along with four other party leaders– Raghav Chadha, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Deepak Bajpa– have already tendered their unequivocal apology to Arun Jaitley in the Rs 10 crore defamation suit filed by him. Vishwas is the only person against whom the defamation suit remains.
Mr Vishwas submitted before Delhi High Court Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw that before making any statement or apology to Jaitley he wants to know whether Kejriwal lied when he said his allegations against the Union Minister were based on documents.
He said the suit can be disposed of as he was not personally interested in taking the matter forward and needs more time to decide what statement he will make so for disposing the suit.
After considering and noting Viashwas’ request, adjourned the matter for further hearing for May, 28.
