"The question of apology doesn't arise as I am not angry with him in the first place," he said. He was reacting to Dadlani’s tweet slamming the Haryana government for inviting him to the state Assembly last week.

Meanwhile, a police complaint has been lodged against Dadlani after his offensive tweet against Tarun Sagar.

The complaint was made by a member of an organisation named Jain Life at the Shahadra police station in Delhi.

On Saturday, Vishal tweeted about Tarun Sagar, mocking him for giving a speech in Haryana Assembly while being naked.
Adding to mounting criticism on Vishal, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi minister Satyendra Jain also tweeted in support of Jain Guru Tarun Sagar.
