Kapil Sibal's son Amit Sibal had filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and some other AAP leaders in 2013 for alleging that Sibal had a conflict of interest in seeking to revise a tax demand on Vodafone.

During the meeting, said the IE report, Kejriwal reportedly put forth the party's view that the BJP government was using four fronts: probes on trumped up charges, the threat of a constitutional crisis, disallowing governance, and the legal threat of frivolous but draining cases across the country, to weaken the party. A defamation suit had been filed against the former after the comments.

In this case, he was accused of withdrawing - fraudulently - Rs 37.62 crore from the Chaibasa treasury. The decision to hand over the fodder scam case to CBI court was taken at the High Court's order.

Reacting to the apologies by Mr. Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, "We are here to work for the public". They have apologised for the same today. "We have not spared time for court, we have spared time for us so that we could fight for people", Sisodia told reporters on the premises of Delhi Assembly. I made certain statements without regard to its verifiability, which seem to have hurt you and therefore you have filed a defamation against me. The application comes after Kejriwal submitted a letter regretting making defamatory remarks against Gadkari. The AAP chief had included Gadkari's name in a list termed "India's most corrupt" ahead of the 2014 parliamentary elections. Kejriwal had previously apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia and retracted from his allegations against him where he alleged that Majithia was involved in a drug racket case.

The Delhi chief minister also apologised to Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Monday, according to ANI.

Pelicans Coach Alvin Gentry Gets Heated Over Officiating In Game Against Rockets
A much more cooled down Gentry was in the Rockets' locker room following the game, and by then word had spread about his tirade. When a guy's got his hands on his chest, and he's got his hands in, and you call a three-point shot [a foul], that's not right.

The Delhi chief minister's apology to Majithia created a rift within the party.

While several Aam Aadmi Party leaders in Punjab said that they have been let down by the decision, party leaders in Delhi said that the move was to move was to shed court cases, in which the party convenor finds himself mired. The cases, say AAP leaders, have been a drain on the party's much money and resources.
