Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Rajesh Garg served a legal notice to AAP leader Kumar Vishwas on Monday for calling him a black-mailer and an opportunist.
In the notice, Garg stated that Vishwas' remarks have tarnished his image and has asked him for an unconditional apology within 15 days from the receipt of the legal notice.
The former AAP MLA asserted that if Vishwas fails to tender apology, he will initiate suit for damages and file a criminal case.
Vishwas has accused Garg of blackmailing him in return for a party ticket in the Delhi Assembly election.
Garg has accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of horse trading last year to form the government. A audio recording of his conversation with Kejriwal appeared in media last week in which the Delhi chief minister is purportedly heard asking Garg to break six Congress MLAs and form another party which could support the AAP.
Following the airing of sting, one of AAP's leaders, Anjali Damania had quit the party.
Meanwhile, AAP on Monday suspended Rajesh Garg from the primary membership of the party.
