The feud over corruption allegations into the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) has come out into the open with BJP MP Kirti Azad calling Union finance minister Arun Jaitley ‘napunsak’ (impotent).
Azad, in a tweet, on 21 December, tweeted, that he is not afraid of anyone and called Jaitley a ‘napunsak’ (impotent). I was visited at home by many agencies to take precautions against threat to my life. Dear @arunjaitley, darta nahin hoon napunsako se.”
When asked, he said that his Twitter account was hacked and that the post against Jaitley was not his. “My a/c has been hacked. The statement on @arunjaitley as napunsak is not my tweet,” claimed Azad.
The Delhi High Court will hear the civil defamation case filed by Jaitley on 22 December against Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders, in which Azad has consented to become a witness. The court has issued a notice to the AAP leaders. The AAP leaders have been given three weeks time to respond to the charges. The next date of hearing in the case will be on 5 February.
Continuing his attack on Jaitley, Kejriwal claimed, by filing a defamation suit, he (Jaitley) has got enmeshed in his own web. “It would do good if he proves his innocence with Commission of Enquiry,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, Jaitley has also filed a criminal defamation suit against the AAP leaders in Patiala House Court. A criminal complaint was filed under Section 200 CrPC for commission of offences under Sections 499, 500, 501,502 of IPC R/W Section 34 & 35 of the IPC.
AAP spokesperson Sanjay Singh said, “I will say again and again that Jaitley is corrupt. He is a ‘maha bhrashtachari‘ and we will fight him tooth and nail.”
Rubbishing the charges against him, Jaitley called the charges against him baseless. Serious Fraud Investigation Office has accepted the DDCA expenses on building a new stadium and found nothing wrong in it.
