Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday apologised to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for levelling allegations of corruption against him when he headed the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).
In a letter to Jaitley, Kejriwal wrote: "I unequivocally withdraw all the allegations made by me in question whether in print, electronic or social media against you. I offer my sincere apology to you and your family members for any harm caused to your reputation as a consequence of my allegations."
"...I categorically state that the disparaging and malicious statements made by Mr. Ram Jethmalani, the Senior Advocate representing me, were without my knowledge and/or instructions," it added.
"Though we belong to two different political parties, I believe that we should end the unsavoury litigations between us and serve the people of our country to the best of our abilities," the letter stated.
