Jaitley had earlier said that he was slapping criminal and civil defamation cases against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders in Delhi courts today for making 'false and defamatory' statements against him.
"I will file an FIR against @arunjaitley and others tomorrow," AAP leader Sanjay Singh tweeted last night.
Upping the ante against Jaitley, AAP pressed for his immediate removal from the Union Cabinet and said it would not be 'bogged down by such intimidatory tactics'.

Kejriwal and the five AAP leaders have publicly been making allegations against Jaitley and his family members with regard to the DDCA affairs. Jaitley has rubbished the allegations against his family members. He has chosen not to give any legal notice to Kejriwal and other AAP leaders asking them to apologise or face defamation cases. Instead, the cases will be filed straight away in the courts.
