Arun Jaitley loses cool over Ram Jethmalani’s remark in High Court


jaitelyHeated exchanges were witnessed between Union Minister Arun Jaitley and advocate Ram Jethmalani in the Delhi High Court Wednesday
This happened during Jaitley’s cross-examination in a defamation case against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The recording of Jaitley’s statement could not take place as he objected to the use of a word against him by Jethmalani representing Kejriwal.

The Finance Minister, who appeared before the Joint Registrar, lost his cool. He asked Jethmalani whether the word was used as per instructions from Kejriwal. To this, Jethmalani replied in the affirmative.


The verbal exchange between Jethmalani and Jaitley started when the former asked a question alleging that his article on irregularities in DDCA could not get published in a weekly magazine at the instance of the finance minister.

Jethmalani also alleged that the article pertained to the corruption in DDCA during the period when Jaitley was its president.
Jethmalani referred to the minister as being “guilty of crime and crookery”.

He also alleged that Jaitley was “deceiving the people by concealing his guilt of crime.”

The finance minister, who appeared before joint registrar Deepali Sharma, lost his cool and asked Jethmalani whether an objectionable word was used as per instructions from Kejriwal.

Arun Jaitley, who appeared before Joint Registrar Deepali Sharma, lost his cool and asked Jethmalani whether an objectionable word was used as per instructions from Kejriwal.

“If this is so, I would aggravate the charges against the defendant (Kejriwal),” Jaitley said, adding that there was a limit to personal malice.
The counsel representing the Finance Minister vehemently opposed the choice of words by Jethmalani saying he must stop insulting the minister.

However, as Jethmalani continued his attack, the Joint Registrar objected to it and said the senior lawyer and other advocates were crossing the limit and should allow the court to proceed in the matter.

Senior advocates Rajiv Nayar and Sandeep Sethi, who were representing Jaitley, also said that Jethmalani was putting scandalous questions and should restrain himself from asking irrelevant ones “as this matter is Arun Jaitley versus Arvind Kejriwal and not Ram Jethmalani versus Arun Jaitley”.
