Can add "x" since you have asked the Plaintiff to add "x". It is upto the Plaintiff to claim relief against "x" or not. But you can prove yourself by filing written statement and then letting in evidence at the time of trial that you are not liable and ask for dismissal of the suit.

yes. I agree with Mr.Ranganathan. The plaintiff has to amend the suit mandatorily.

Yes, But without amendment also a party could be added if it is necessary for the effectively adjudicating the dispute. The provision is quite clear about the circumstances calling for addition of parties and it does not necessarily call for amendment of pleading.

Concurred with Barman, but in case of addition of defendant see Sub Rule (4) Rule 10 of Order I.
