The Congress leader also proposed Kejriwal to join hands against former BJP President Nitin Gadkari who had sued both the leaders. Writing on his Twitter account, Digvijay said, "Kejriwal instead of doing NAUTANKI should join me in exposing Gadkari. He has also filed a defamation case in the same Court against me."
The AAP leader was on May 21 sent to Tihar jail as he refused to submit bail bond of Rs 10,000 in connection with a criminal defamation case filed by Gadkari. He will be produced before Patiala House Court in Delhi on Friday, May 23.
Well-known AAP leaders such as Yogendra Yadav and many others were detained on Wednesday night when they protested outside Tihar jail where Section 144 has been imposed.
Kejriwal earlier had listed out names of the most corrupt politicians in the country on Jan 31, 2014. The list included Suresh Kalmadi, Nitin Gadkari, Sushilkumar Shinde, BS Yeddyurappa, Kapil Sibal, Mulayam Singh, Kamal Nath, Veerappa Moily, Ananth Kumar, Anurag Thakur, Sharad Pawar, Praful Patel, P Chidambaram, Alagari, Kanimozhi, A Raja, Tarun Gogoi, Mayawati, Naveen Jindal.
Gadkari was accused of pocketing Rs 490 crore in coal block allocation
The former BJP President later had filed complaint against Kejriwal saying that Kejriwal tarnished his image by calling him corrupt. The complaint was filed before metropolitan magistrate Gomati Manocha.
Earlier Digvijay, who had appeared before Metropolitan Magistrate pursuance to the summons issued against him by the court on Nov 17, 2012, was granted bail personal bond of Rs 50,000 and a surety of the same amount.
Digvijay later had vowed to gather evidence against Gadkari. He had said, "Now I can say everything in front of the court the way Mr Gadkari has worked as a businessman and how he has links with various other businessmen, which all companies of his were fake and how he earned profits."
Digvijay allegedly had accused Gadkari of pocketing huge sum to the tune of Rs 490 crore in the coal block allocation to Mr Sancheti.
