AMRITSAR: An Amritsar court today issued summons to AAP national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and two others of his party asking them to appear before it on July 29 in a defamation case.
Besides Mr Kejriwal, summons were issued to journalist-turned-politician Ashish Khetan and AAP’s Punjab affairs in-charge Sanjay Singh by Chief Judicial Magistrate Gurpartap Singh in a case filed by Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia.
Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister, Delhi and Convenor Aam Admi Party (AAP), Sanjay Singh, In-charge of Punjab affairs of AAP and Ashish Khetan, Spokesperson AAP have been summoned to court on July 29, 2016 as accused in a criminal defamation case filed by Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia.
Expressing satisfaction over the orders, S. Majithia termed it as a victory of truth and said that he has received justice from the court.
He said that Guru Sahiban have instilled in the sacred land of Majha the lesson of combating injustice and falsehood. He said that Kejriwal’s falsehood and politics running on lies can never be successful in Punjab. He said that truth alone prevails whereas Kejriwal always indulges in misleading gimmicks. He said that Kejriwal has run away from the consequences of his deeds for long but now he will not be allowed to do so in future. He said issuance of summons by the court has started exposing his falsehood. Mr. Majithia said that they have been today summoned to court and tomorrow they will be behind the bars. He said that it is extremely pathetic that Kejriwal has brought the post and stature of the Chief Minister of the Capital of the Nation to such a degrading state that he is being summoned by court for being accused of dirty politics.
He said that Kejriwal would have never ever dreamt that this would have ever happened to him but the countdown has begun for team Kejriwal. He threw an open challenge to Kejriwal saying that if he has faith in the Indian Judicial System then he should resign and personally appear before the court on July 29,2016 and offer for day to day hearing of the case.
He said that Kejriwal came to Golden Temple for the absolution of his sins but he will have to come back again and this time in the “Lok Adalat”, the court of people. He said that time and again Kejriwal has betrayed the people of Punjab by taking anti –sikh and anti-Punjab stands coupled with false propaganda to mislead the people; each time he commits a sin and goes back to Delhi but he will not be able to run back for long. People of Punjab will out rightly reject him and show him the door out once for all. He said that the day will come soon when there will be no escape route whatsoever left for him.
