Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley again slapped a Rs 10 crore defamation case against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal because of the latter’s lawyer, Ram Jethmalani, using foul words against him.

It is being said that Delhi High Court can begin the hearing of this petition as early as Tuesday.
Saeed Ansari of Aaj Tak presented a story on Dalits deciding to convert to Islam. In Aligarh’s Keshopur Jafreh village, a dispute took place over the drainage system. Violence erupted and goons thrashed Dalits with the police doing nothing to protect them. The Dalits then decided to convert. The anchor was well-informed about various aspects of the story and presented it to viewers interestingly.
Umesh Phatak of ABP News presented a report on whether UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will stand for election from Ayodhya. Phatak spoke with Ved Gupta who stated he had no clue about this matter but said that if the CM were to contest from Ayodhya it would be good for Ayodhya and would also benefit the party in the 2019 elections. The reporter presented the long report efficiently in a short span of time, using simple words to convey the gist of the story.
