The LoP said that Sisodia had accused Sarma that the Assam government had bought PPE kits at a higher cost from the company of the CM’s wife during the Corona period.
New Delhi: After Supreme Court’s strong observation against Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia that he will have to face consequences regarding a defamation case filed by Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, the leader of opposition (LoP) in Delhi assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri advised Sisodia to publicly apologize to Sarma. He said that considering the number of lies by the leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party, they should apologize for all the other false allegations as well. Due to these allegations, crores of rupees from Delhi’s exchequer are wasted.
The LoP said that Sisodia had accused Sarma that the Assam government had bought PPE kits at a higher cost from the company of the CM’s wife during the Corona period. Sarma had filed a defamation case against him in Kamrup court, terming the allegations as false. Sisodia first went to the High Court to stop the matter and reached the Supreme Court after the matter was dismissed.
“Remarks made by the apex court are a matter of great shame for the AAP. The court even said that if you lower the level of public debate to such an extent, you will have to face the consequences. Not only this, the court also said that you should have apologized unconditionally. These allegations were leveled at a time when the country was facing a challenging period in Corona,” he said.
Bidhuri said that it is the character and habit of the AAP leaders that they make allegations like ‘hit and run’ and then do not even take responsibility for it. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also apologized unconditionally to many people because of this habit. Now the court has given the same advice to Sisodia as well.
The LoP said that due to such baseless political allegations, crores of rupees are being spent by the Delhi government for lawyers’ fees on the cases going on in the courts. If any minister of the Delhi government makes political allegations like this, then the lawyer’s fees should not be recovered from the government account but from the pocket of that minister.
