New Delhi: The Delhi High Court yesterday asked union minister Nitin Gadkari and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to find an amicable solution and reach a compromise in a defamation case filed by the former BJP chief to seek redressal for charges of corruption hurled at him.

A division bench of Justice Reva Khetrapal and Justice S P Garg asked both the leaders to “shake hands” and solve the issue amicably. The bench also said it was only a “matter of ego”.

“None of you are afraid of filing complaints. You both are lions. Don’t waste time on petty issues. These are matters of ego, nothing else,” the bench said.

The court asked them to consider solving the issue amicably and inform it on August 22.

The court also suggested to Kejriwal’s counsel Shanti Bhushan to withdraw the allegations filed against Gadkari and in turn the minister will withdraw his defamation case against the Aam Aadmi Party chief.
