RamJet slaps BJP leaders with multi-crore defamation suit

Senior advocate Ram Jethmalani has filed a defamation case against the BJP party’s parliamentary board for expelling him from the party in May 2013, claiming Rs 50 lakh from each of the 11-odd members of the board.

(However, BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee were not listed as respondents.)

Jethmalani filed his case in the Delhi high court on 5 October, alleging that the decision to expel him from the party for six years was unconstitutional, arbitrary and driven by malice and a desire to defame the senior criminal lawyer and Rajya Sabha member [IBN Live / ANI]
