New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) Civil society activist Arvind Kejriwal Thursday said apologising to union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Virbhadra Singh over remarks against him was not needed as he had only presented facts about Singh.
"I have only presented the facts, nothing wrong. My conscience does not allow me to apologise with the fear of a defamation case against me. I do not think I have committed any mistake for which I should apologise. Rather you should say sorry to the people of Himachal Pradesh," Kejriwal wrote in a letter to Singh.
Singh, a former chief minister of Himachal Pradesh, had said late March that he had gone through reports in which Kejriwal has been "credited with" giving a list of 14 ministers against whom charges of corruption need to be investigated.
"You have also included my name in that list. However, it is evident that your information in this regard is sketchy and not correct," the minister had said.
"I, therefore, suggest that you tender an unconditional apology for maligning my name and levelling incorrect allegations, failing which I will be constrained to take legal action against you," Singh said.
