Defamation case: Don`t want unnecessary litigation, CM to HC
New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Wednesday told the Delhi High Court that she does not want "unnecessary" litigation and is willing to be "magnanimous" if BJP leader Vijender Gupta, against whom a defamation complaint was lodged by her, comes "forward with the truth".
"Even today, my stand is that we do not want unnecessary litigation. Being a responsible citizen of the country, I am not willing to pursue it but the other side should also come forward with the truth," Mehmood Pracha, counsel for the Chief Minister, told Justice J R Midha.
The offer was made during the hearing of Gupta`s plea challenging a trial court order to frame charges against him in the criminal defamation complaint lodged by Dikshit for allegedly using uncivilized language against her in the run up to MCD polls last year.
Gupta has also sought a stay on the trial court proceedings in the case.
