New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal`s Aam Aadmi Party has said sorry for using abusive language against Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde at a road-show in Delhi on Wednesday.
A statement made by AAP on Thursday said that it was against the use of foul language by the members of its party or even its supporters. It said, "We stand for honest and clean politics." It also said that it would take care that such mistakes were not repeated again.
On the remark made against Shinde by Rajeev Laxman, the party clarified that the VJ had realised his mistake and had apologised for his comments. The VJ has also apparently taken the whole blame on himself and has said that the AAP had nothing to do with his remarks.
Rajeev Laxman, who is a VJ on a TV channel, had used offensive language at a public meeting in which the party`s candidate Shazia Ilmi was present. He is not a member of AAP.
He was hitting back at the Home Minister for ordering an investigation into the foreign funding of Kejriwal`s party. As per Shinde, the inquiry has been ordered based on a Delhi High Court order.
Arvind Kejriwal`s Aam Aadmi Party is a newly formed party and is fighting its first elections in the upcoming Delhi Assembly polls, voting for which is due to take place on December 04. The results will be declared on December 08.
