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.

Arvind Kejriwal Accuses Modi Government of Betraying Farmers

The Modi government was worried more about Ambanis and Adanis, he alleged

Modi government betrayed farmers: Kejriwal.

The Modi government has stabbed farmers in the back by telling the Supreme Court that it cannot implement recommendations of the M.S. Swaminathan Commission which the BJP promised to do so in 2014, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Addressing a farmers rally here at Jantar Mantar, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also slammed the Centre’s crop insurance scheme as a “fraud” and demanded that it be scrapped.

“Soldiers at the borders and farmers at thier farms are in distress. It’s a sad state of affairs. The BJP has dishonoured the promises it made in 2014,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

Thousands of farmers from across the country marched from Ramlila Maidan to Jantar Mantar in the heart of the capital seeking loan waiver and higher crop prices and warning political parties not to ignore their plight.

Reminding the BJP’s promise vis-a-vis the Swaminathan Commission, Kejriwal accused the ruling party of going back on its election promise.

“They have filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and said they can’t implement it. There can’t be a greater betrayal than this. This government has stabbed farmers in the back,” he said, asking the government to take back the affidavit.

He warned that if it failed to do so, farmers would teach the saffron party a lesson in the 2019 elections.

Demanding loan waiver for farmers, he also said that they must get fair price for their produce.

“They are not begging but fighting for their rights. Once their loans are waived, they won’t demand it again. The government should also buy the farmers’ produce at appropriate price.”

He blasted the government’s crop insurance scheme.

“This is not an insurance scheme but it is BJP’s ‘kisan daka yojna’ (plunder farmers scheme). This must go and the money paid by farmers be returned. Instead, the government should start a compensation scheme for farmers.”

The Modi government was worried more about Ambanis and Adanis, he alleged. (IANS)
