Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Monday said Arvind Kejriwal’s reluctance to offer an apology to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the DDCA issue shows his politics of making reckless allegations.
Prasad said a government committee of Arvind Kejriwal did not find anything individual against Jaitley and they are saying that the matter requires further investigation by a commission of enquiry.
"Therefore, all condemnable and shameful allegations they have made against Mr Jaitley…there was no basis for Mr Kejriwal to say that. Now if he is reluctant to even offer an apology, this only shows his politics whereby he keeps on making reckless allegations for which there is no basis and which is condemnable," Prasad said.
On Sunday, the BJP had demanded "public apology", saying a report of the city government has found no evidence against the Finance Minister.
Party spokesperson M J Akbar said the DDCA file which Kejriwal made his basis to attack Jaitley over the CBI raid and affairs of the cricket body does not name Jaitley.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said he would not apologise for targeting Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on the DDCA issue as his government’s panel did not give anybody a clean chit.
