Mishra's statements tarnished my image: Jain
Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain told a court on Friday that sacked minister Kapil Mishra's defamatory statements has tarnished his image in public.
Recording his statement as complainant in a defamation case against Mishra, he told Metropolitan Magistrate Shefali Barnala Tandon that on May 7, Mishra made a blatantly false, misleading, baseless, and defamatory statement before the media that Jain handed over Rs 2 crore to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on May 5 at his residence.
Jain said these statements were telecast and printed by the national media across all platforms - electronic, print, and social - which caused immense damage to him and his family. Jain's advocate Gautam Dhamija told court that he did not want to examine any other complainant witness after the conclusion of Jain's testimony and requested court to conclude defence evidence.MPOST
