Jaitley to file defamation case against Kejriwal, Azad, AAP leaders

Jaitley, who headed the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) for 13 years till 2013, has been accused of corruption by Delhi's ruling AAP

 

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will file a civil and criminal defamation case against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, BJP MP Kirti Azad and five leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party on Monday, BJP sources said on Sunday.
 
The other AAP leaders are Kumar Vishwas, Raghav Chadha, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh and Deepak Bajpai.
 
"No legal notice would be sent to the Delhi chief minister. Apart from Kejriwal, a defamation case will also be filed against Kirti Azad. Cases will be also filed against other AAP leaders. The civil defamation case will be filed in the high court and the criminal case will be filed in the Patiala court," said a Bharatiya Janata Party source.
 
Jaitley, who headed the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) for 13 years till 2013, has been accused of corruption by Delhi's ruling AAP.
 
Kejriwal has demanded Jaitley must resign or be removed from his post as union finance minister to enable an independent probe into DDCA matters.
 
Former India player Kirti Azad on Sunday alleged massive financial irregularities in Delhi's cricket board even as the city government said it has ordered a probe into the DDCA's working.
 
Addressing the media with another former player Bishan Singh Bedi, Azad sought an investigation by the Enforcement Directorate into the working of the DDCA.
 
Reacting to this, AAP spokesperson Ashutosh tweeted: "Mr Jaitley don't threaten us with defamation. Answer the questions we had asked? You will take us to court, we will take u to people's court."

The DDCA corruption case against Jaitley & defamation case contemplated by him should be handled by a fast track court and the truth brought out. In case the charges are found to be false not only defamation compensation to Jaitley but law should be enacted to punish those who make false allegations.

Never spoke to Modi about National Herald case: Swamy
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, the lone petitioner in the National Herald case, said he has never spoken to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the case.
 
Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and her son and party vice president Rahul Gandhi appeared in a trial court here on Saturday in the case.
 
Swamy dismissed allegations that he was pursuing the case on the orders of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership.
 
"I have never taken appointment in his (Modi's) office...In fact, I have never spoken to the prime minister verbally on this matter," Swamy told reporters after the court granted bail to the Congress leaders.
 
They appeared before Metropolitan Magistrate Loveleen in the Patiala House courts complex.
 
"I have so many friends in BJP. I am an old Jan Sanghi and started my career in Jan Sangh. I know most of them personally...," he added.
 
Swamy described the scene inside the courtroom.
 
"When the Gandhis (Sonia and Rahul Gandhi) entered, they were made to stand in a corner where the accused are supposed to be. They were not allowed to sit except Motilal Vora," he said.
 
Swamy expressed satisfaction over the judgement.
 
The Delhi High Court last week dismissed the plea of the Gandhis to quash the summons issued to them by the trial court on Swamy's complaint regarding the acquisition of National Herald newspaper.
 
On June 26 last year, the trial court issued summons to the Congress leaders on Swamy's complaint about "cheating" in the acquisition of Associated Journals Ltd., which published the National Herald newspaper, by Young India Ltd., "a firm in which Sonia and Rahul Gandhi each own a 38 percent stake".

Drug major Sun Pharmacuetical Industries Ltd on Saturday said it has received a warning letter from USFDA relating to its facility in Halol in Gujarat.
 
The letter was a result of the inspection done by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) at Halol plant in September 2014.
 
In a statement Sun Pharma said it would respond to the warning letter with a detailed plan within the stipulated timeframe.
 
"While our team is working hard to ensure that the commitments made to the USFDA in September 2014 are fully completed, we will continue to cooperate with the USFDA and undertake any additional steps necessary to ensure that the US agency is completely satisfied with our remediation of the Halol facility," Dilip Shanghvi, managing director, was quoted as saying in the statement.
 
Post the September 2014 inspection, the USFDA has withheld future product approvals from the Halol facility.
