New Delhi [India] March 19 (ANI): Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Monday said he has forgiven Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after the latter tendered an apology.

Talking to reporters here, Sibal said everything is forgotten now after Kejriwal and Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia accepted that they had levelled baseless allegations against him.

"Kejriwal Ji and Sisodia ji have accepted that the allegations they had put on me and my son in a press conference few years ago were baseless. They have apologised for the same today. He (Kejriwal) has apologised for what he did. Everything is forgotten now. We will move ahead," Sibal said.
