Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday issued a public apology to former Punjab minister and senior Akali Dal leader, Bikram Majithia, for his past allegations on the latter's alleged involvement in drug trade.
"I will continue to fight against drug mafia as an "Aam Aadmi", Mann, who is the Punjab president of the party, tweeted this morning.
Sunam MLA Aman Arora, the deputy convener of the party in Punjab, added, "Shocked & disappointed to know about the apology tendered by Arvind Kejriwal to Majithia".
"Today AAP has been murdered in Punjab by Kejriwal", Sidhu told reporters here.
The CM said he has withdrawn all the allegations he made against Majithia.
"Now, I've learnt that the allegations are unfounded. I hope justice will be done as people like BS Majithia deserve to be in jail", reads the statement of AAP's Member Parliament Sanjay Singh published in an English daily. He said Kejriwal had given such statements when Majithia was in power and "now when he is not in power he has apologized, and that too in writing". "AAP MLAs will gather and take stock of the situation". In today's day and age we are bound to commit mistakes.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has tendered an apology for having levelled "unfounded" allegations related to involvement in drugs trade against Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia following which the latter has chose to withdraw the court case against him. Now, they will discuss the fall out of the Kejriwal apology. "I still believe drugs would not have taken so many young lives had the previous SAD-BJP government not patronised the drug mafia".
Arun Jaitley had filed a criminal defamation case against Arvind Kejriwal for accusing him of corruption during his 13-year tenure as the head of the Delhi & District Cricket Association. This is a non-issue, probably there is a back-door dealing behind it.
Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal attacked AAP's politics and said, "This exposes cheap politics by AAP, they spread false propaganda. With what face will they speak against drugs in Punjab now?" he questioned. Hence there should be no politics on such issues.
