You used worse words against Jaitley: Jethmalani to Kejriwal
The war of words between senior counsel Ram Jethmalani and Arvind Kejriwal took another turn with the former alleging that the Delhi Chief Minister had used worse words against Union Minister, Arun Jaitley.
"When Arun Jaitley filed the first suit and criminal case, you naturally sought my services. Ask your conscience how many times you used worse abuses than a mere 'crook'. You have hundred times asked me to teach this crook a lesson," he said in a letter to Kejriwal.
Kejriwal had told the Delhi High Court in an affidavit that he had not asked Jethmalani to use abusive words against Jaitley. That with due respect, it is submitted that neither the answering defendant nor the counsel briefing the senior counsel gave instructions to the learned senior counsel to use the objectionable words... The answering defendant vide letter July 19, 2017 has conveyed to the senior counsel directly that no instructions to use objectionable words were ever given by him at any point of time to the learned senior counsel," Kejriwal told the court in his reply to an application filed by Jaitley.
Jehtmalani on the other hand has asked Kejriwal to settle his fees of Rs 2 crore. He also said that he would never appear for the Delhi CM ever again. Pay the fees for the first matter and nothing for the second, Jethmalani also told Kejriwal.
