CM apology row: AAP calls Punjab leaders for meet today

CM apology row: AAP calls Punjab leaders for meet today

Hence, there should be no politics on such issues...

Aam Aadmi Party MP Bhagwant Mann has resigned as president of its Punjab unit in what is being seen as a backlash to party founder Arvind Kejriwal's apology to a former minister over allegations linked to a drugs racket.

On AAP's future prospect in Punjab, the chief minister claimed the party's MLAs were totally disappointed and were reportedly looking for alternatives in order to safeguard their own future.

Before splitting up the leader of opposition in the state assembly Sukhpal Singh Khaira along with LIP leaders released a "chargesheet" against Amarinder Singh lead Congress government.

Majithia had filed a defamation case against the Aam Aadmi Party chief and others following the allegation made during campaigning in the Punjab assembly elections.

The former Punjab minister, Majithia had previously filed a criminal defamation case on May 20, 2016, against AAP Chief Kejriwal and AAP leaders Sanjay Singh (who is now a Rajya Sabha MP) and Ashish Khetan over linking him to the drug trade on baseless grounds and tarnishing his overall image.

Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, accused Kejriwal of misleading the people over the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital. "All political parties should leave politics over sealing", Kejriwal said.




Hazare said making a mistake and tendering an apology is more or less the same thing.

"Arvind Kejriwal has deceived Punjabis by tendering an apology to Majithia".

Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu commented over Kejriwal's apology as "murder of AAP in Punjab".

Referring to the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh, his home state, he said within one year the party had lost both the mandate and the goodwill of the people.

Khaira said that he was getting numerous messages from volunteers and that he wanted to ensure them that whatever decision is taken, would be in the interest of Punjab. "For me, welfare of Punjab's people is most important".

The AAP and the LIP had entered into an alliance six months before the Punjab Assembly polls held in February past year.

In the letter, which was submitted to the Amritsar court, Kejriwal wrote, "In the recent past I made certain statements and allegations against you regarding your alleged involvement in drug trade".
