Also, reacting to defamation suit by Arun Jaitley, Ashutosh said, "Mr Jaitley don't threaten us with defamation.Answer the questions we had asked? You will take us to court, we will take u to people's court (sic)."

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has filed a civil defamation suit against Arvind Kejriwal and 5 other AAP leaders in Delhi High Court for making "false and defamatory" statements against him over alleged irregularities in DDCA. Also, Jaitley has sought Rs 10 crore damages from the AAP leaders.

Apart from Kejriwal, the five others are Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha and Deepak Bajpayee.
