'Kumar Vishwas will not apologise to Arun Jaitley', says AAP leader's aide after Arvind Kejriwal expresses regret for comments

New Delhi: AAP leader Kumar Vishwas will not apologise to finance minister Arun Jaitley, his close aide said on Monday, even as his party colleagues expressed regret for their comments against the BJP leader.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal along with AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh, Deepak Bajpai and Raghav Chadha had alleged irregularities in the Delhi District Cricket Administration (DDCA) which was once headed by Jaitley.

A joint plea was on Monday moved in a Delhi court by Jaitley, Kejriwal, Singh, Ashutosh, Bajpai and Chadha to "settle" their more than two years old litigation over alleged defamatory statements made against the BJP leader. The development came after Kejriwal, Singh, Ashutosh, Bajpai and Chadha apologised for their remarks.

However, Vishwas did not move any plea to settle the litigation. So, the defamation case against him will continue.

"He (Vishwas) will not apologise and pursue the cases that have been filed against him," his aide Prabudh Kumar said.

After Kejriwal started issuing apologies for the remarks made by him against his political opponents last month, Vishwas had said that he would contest the defamation cases filed against him.

Vishwas has been at the odds with the party leadership for sometime now and shares a very cold relationship with his once "close friend" Kejriwal.
