The remarks came after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Sisodia expressed regret to Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and Congress leader Kapil Sibal's son Amit Sibal for certain statements they made against them which had prompted the duo to file separate defamation suits.

The application read by Nitin Gadkari reads, "As Shri Kejriwal has acknowledged that complainant was hurt on account of unverified allegations and expressed regret, in the larger public interest and interest of the nation, the complainant does not wish to pursue the defamation case".

Earlier, Kejriwal's letter to former Punjab minister Bikram Singh Majithia drove a wedge between the party's state and national units with Punjab AAP MLAs demanding that the state unit ought to have immunity. Following Arvind Kejriwal's apology, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari also filed a joint application for seeking of withdrawn of the defamation case in Delhi's Patiala House Court.

Talking to reporters here, Sibal said everything is forgotten now after Kejriwal and Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia accepted that they had levelled baseless allegations against him. In the letter, Kejriwal wrote,"I have nothing personal against you".

The Delhi chief minister also apologised to Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Monday, according to ANI. "I regret the same".

"I hereby withdraw all my statements and allegations made against you and your father and apologize for the same".

Why is Kejriwal Apology to each politician?

As we all know that AAP had successfully registered in Politics in 2015, and soon they captured the 35% Punjab in 2017 Assembly elections, they won 20 seats in Punjab. Withdrawing his allegations, Kejriwal said that he was apologising after he learnt that his allegations were unfounded. Mr Bhadana had been alleged corrupt by the AAP leader in 2014.
