RIL mulls legal action against Arvind Kejriwal for defamation

Mumbai: Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) is planning legal action against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal, for defaming the company and its chairman, Mukesh Ambani.

The conglomerate is reportedly readying a case against Kejriwal, who resigned as chief minister of Delhi on Friday, and others for levelling "baseless allegations" against it and Ambani and hurting corporate interests. Reliance officials confirm they plan to 'resort to the available legal remedies' in response to Arvind Kejriwal's first information reports (FIR).

Kejriwal accused RIL of creating artificial gas shortage and increase prices

Kejriwal had ordered the anti-corruption unit of the Delhi government to register FIR against RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani, Union Oil and Natural Gas Minister M Veerappa Moily and former minister Murli Deora and others.

The AAP leader had accused the RIL of conspiring with members of the government to create artificial shortage of gas in the country and raise prices of gas produced in the Krishna-Godavari basin.

He also hit out at the Congress and BJP, accusing them of backing the corporate interests to bring down his government. Kejriwal had quit on February 14 after his pet Jan Lokpal Bill hit a hurdle in the Delhi assembly.
