New Delhi, July 29, 2017: Ram Jethmalani, who is a former counsel of Delhi Chief Arvind Kejriwal has fired a fresh salvo against the Delhi Chief Minister and the AAP leader.

Jethmalani alleged that the Kejriwal used “worse abuses” against Union Minister Arun Jaitley. As a result, the two are now engaged in a war of words after Mr Kejriwal has denied that he authorized Mr Jethmalani to use the word “crook” for Mr Jaitley during the hearing of a defamation case against the AAP chief by the Finance Minister, mentioned NDTV report.

Mr. Kejriwal has accused Jaitley of corruption during his 13-year-term as head of Delhi’s powerful cricket body, DDCA. To this, Arun Jaitley has filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and said that baseless allegations were made against him publicly.

On July 20, Mr Jethmalani wrote a letter to Mr Kejriwal and the copy of this letter was also uploaded on his blog yesterday, the senior lawyer said, “When Arun Jaitley filed the first suit and criminal case, you naturally sought my services. Ask your conscience how many times you used worse abuses than a mere ‘crook’. You have hundred times asked me to teach this crook a lesson.”

As a result of this letter, a source close to Mr Kejriwal has hit out at the lawyer saying, “Conversations between a client and his advocate cannot be put out in the public domain.”

The whole development comes days after the Delhi CM said that he had not asked Mr Jethmalani to use objectionable words against the minister.

The affidavit submitted by Mr Kejriwal on July 25 read, “With due respect, it is submitted that neither Kejriwal nor the counsel briefing the senior counsel Jethmalani gave instructions to the senior counsel to use the objectionable words on May 17, 2017.”

According to the NDTV report, while the cross-examination of Mr Jaitley on May 17, Mr Jethmalani had said, “He (Arun Jaitley) is a crook and I will show this”. After Mr Jaitley objected, he had said, “Let the court note that I am doing this with my client’s consent”. In response, Mr Jaitley had said he would seek “aggravated damages”.

Responding to Arvind Kejriwal’s denial, Mr Jethmalani’s office had said, “He had given me instructions, I had recorded it… I have told him that I am no longer appearing. He doesn’t want a lawyer now, probably will settle with Arun Jaitley.” The senior counsel’s office had added that a communication has been sent to Mr Kejriwal to settle the dues, amounting to over Rs. 2 crore.

On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court cautioned Mr. Kejriwal against posing “scandalous questions” to Mr Jaitley during his cross-examination in the defamation suit.

The problem is acuter for the women and kids, who have no place to hide themselves from the exceptional cold wave of winter.

NEW DELHI: The whole of India is reeling under the intense wave of cold and especially the NCR region which is heavily bogged down by the fog blanket. People can be seen wrapped in heavy woolens and are turning up to bonfires to keep themselves warm. Many trains are also getting delayed almost an everyday basis due to the heavy fog.

The cold wave has started taking a toll on the people and Surviving the harsh weather condition is becoming a grim reality for many. The cold is intense and becoming unbearable for the people who are sleeping in open. Due to it, many homeless and poor people are taking the direct hit of cold weather in Delhi.

According to a survey conducted by the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) in 2014, the national capital has around 16,000 homeless people. But the social activists deny these figures and state it to be around two lakh.

Also according to another report by Hindustan Times, the DUSIB’s winter action plan 2017-18 for night shelters was rolled out on November 15. But the ground realities are quite different from the claims made by the Arvind Kejriwal led party.

The minimum temperature recorded at 4.2 degree Celsius, three notches below the season’s average. The bone-chilling cold has brought many people to their knees and there is nothing much that they can do. According to police records, in the last six days, 44 people have already lost their lives due the bitter winter.

The huge promises of AAP party don’t seem to be fulfilled that they boasted during the time of election campaigns. One of the agenda that Arvind Kejriwal took up during election time was the rehabilitation of homeless people in makeover sheds. But the death count of people in the last 6 days has really brought the question of ethics and principals that was the prime agenda of AAP party.

In one of the recent tweets, former AAP party member, Kapil Sharma has exposed the filthy politics of Arvind Kejriwal.

The terribly cold nights on footpaths and open grounds are the only options left for homeless people. The Delhi government should come up with something substantial as the winter is already turning out to be too dangerous.

The problem is acuter for the women and kids, who have no place to hide themselves from the exceptional cold wave of winter.

Last year, following the demolition of the homeless shelter by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed his concern over the issue and assured that there will be makeshift habitats for poor people. But till now nothing has been done from the government side to subdue the problem.
