It is seen that Arvind Kejriwal is begging for pardon only in those cases where he has been dragged to the court.

Beleaguered Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi chief minister (CM) Arvind Kejriwal is on a beg-pardon spree.
After expressing regret last week to Punjab politician Bikram Majithia, now Kejriwal has apologized to an Indian minister and BJP leader Nitin Gadkari for calling him “one of the country’s most corrupt politicians”.
After the apology, Gadkari has decided to withdraw the defamation case against Kejriwal, who owes similar apologies to a number of politicians including finance minister Arun Jaitley, former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit, and slew of others.
It is said that Kejriwal is facing dozens of defamation cases for making wild, unsubstantiated allegations against his opponents. Most AAP leaders are goons who either quarrel with their adversaries, beat them, or issue derogatory remarks against them.
Recently, Manish Sisodia – an AAP leader and minister in Kejriwal’s Delhi Government alleged that the Lt. Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal is trying to protect the corrupt bureaucratic system in Delhi. It was a baseless rhetoric. But Sisodia has not yet issued his apology.
“After making baseless allegation and not being able to prove anything, Kejriwal now sends an apology letter to Gadkari,” BJP said. “Every apology letter of Kejriwal is proof that his politics is based only on lies and negativity and all matters to him is power at any cost.”

It is also seen that Kejriwal is begging for pardon only in those cases where he has been dragged to the court. For example, the IAS officers have been demanding an apology from him, but he has not shown any regret for the alleged attack on Delhi chief secretary Aanshu Prakash.
Rather, Kejriwal has threatened the bureaucrats by saying that if they did not obey his orders, he will take stern action against them.
The victory of AAP in 2015 Delhi election was based on such falsehood when Kejriwal and other AAP leaders had gone berserk and baselessly called their opponents corrupt.
People of Delhi got tricked and voted for AAP assuming that Kejriwal is an honest politician who is fighting against corruption.
But the fact is that Kejriwal and his cronies have been telling blatant lies to cheat the people of Delhi to win elections by hook or by crook. As Kejriwal has duped millions of Delhi voters, he must tender an apology to them and step down from the CM’s chair.
Meanwhile, in an ongoing RMN Poll, a whopping 77% people say they are not satisfied with Kejriwal government.
Most people believe that in just 3 years of their rule, Kejriwal and AAP have caused such a damage to Delhi that now it will take it almost 30 years to recover from the ruins.
