Arvind refuses to withdraw statement against Gadkari
The court of Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha on Friday ordered the framing of charges against the AAP chief under Sections 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code after he refused to withdraw his allegations against Gadkari.
When Kejriwal and Gadkari appeared in the Metropolitan court earlier on Friday the two leaders were asked to settle the matter amicably. Gadkari even offered to withdraw the defamation case filed by him against Kejriwal on the condition that he withdraws all charges of corruption made by him. However, Kejriwal flatly refused to withdraw the charges made by him against the BJP leader.
Following this, Gadkari said he would go ahead with the case leaving the court no option but to frame charges against the former Delhi chief minister.
