"He also asked the Aam Aadmi Party chief to tender a public apology for his false and defamatory allegations within seven days."
New Delhi, July 17 - A Delhi BJP legislator Thursday asked AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to pay Rs.1 crore in damages for tarnishing the party's image by making baseless allegations of horse-trading against it.

In a legal notice to the former Delhi chief minister, R.P. Singh said if the Bharatiya Janata Party is defamed on the basis of false allegations, then it will also be his defamation.

I had no other option but to send Kejriwal a legal notice for defamation since he has levelled baseless charges against the BJP of indulging in horse-trading to form the government in Delhi, Singh told reporters here.

Singh demanded Rs.1 crore from Kejriwal for causing mental agony, harassment and defamation.

He also asked the Aam Aadmi Party chief to tender a public apology for his false and defamatory allegations within seven days.

Kejriwal has accused the BJP of offering Rs.20 crore to Congress legislators to form the government in the national capital.
