Delhi Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena tweeted “Satyameva Jayate” (truth alone triumphs), soon after the High Court on Tuesday restrained the AAP and several of its leaders from levelling ”false” allegations against him.
The Delhi High Court also directed the Aam Aadmi Party leaders to remove their alleged libellous posts, videos, and tweets against Saxena on social media.
The AAP leaders had alleged that Saxena had received and channelized demonetized currency in November 2016 while acting as chairman of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC). The party had alleged that Saxena was involved in a Rs 1,400 crore scam.
Saxena had sent legal notices to AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Atishi, Saurabh Bhardwaj, Durgesh Pathak, and Delhi Dialogue and Development Commission vice-chairperson Jasmine Shah.
He also sought damages and compensation of Rs 2.5 crore along with interest from the political party and its five leaders.
Saxena came under fierce attack by the AAP over his frequent run-ins with the Arvind Kejriwal government over a host of issues, including his decision to recommend a CBI probe into alleged irregularities in the implementation of Excise Policy 2021-22.
