AAP had alleged financial irregularities in the DDCA following which Jaitely had sued Kejriwal, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh, Kumar Vishwas, Raghav Chadha and Deepak Bajpai for defamation.

"He was involved in corruption in the DDCA and we are firm on what we have said. We will put forth and explain our stand in the court," AAP leader Sanjay Singh said.

In a jibe, AAP's Delhi unit convenor Dilip Pandey said Jaitley is "so free that he can visit the court and record statement when the country is facing economic hardships while he is heading the Finance Ministry".
