"AAP will 'amicably sort out' all cases against it" said a spokesperson on Thursday night. This came as an aftermath of the apology of Chief minister Kejriwal to former minister Bikram Singh Majithia. Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party that has accumulated dozens of cases filed against its leaders has decided to start resolving them. This came as a news after Chief Minister Kejriwal retracted his allegations against former Punjab Cabinet Minister Bikram Singh Majithia, by issuing a written apology, who he had last year accused of being a part of the drug trade in Punjab. Sources said the party is also considering making the apology offered to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who had sued Mr. Kejriwal for accusing him of corruption during his 13-year tenure as the head of the main cricket administration body for Delhi.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who has dozens of cases relating to defamation, putting up posters and violating orders banning protests not just in Delhi but many parts of the country including Varanasi, Amethi, Punjab, Assam, Maharashtra, and Goa.
AAP spokesman Saurabh Bharadwaj said the decision to sort out pending court cases against Chief Minister Kejriwal and others was taken on the advice of the party's legal team because the cases were "taking a toll on the already strained resources of the party and individuals".
The party is also considering reaching out to Union Ministers Arun Jaitley and Nitin Gadkari, who had taken AAP leaders to court for libel after he was counted among "India's most corrupt politicians" in 2014.
