After tendering an unconditional apology to former Minister Majithia last Thursday levelling charges of involvement in drugs trade against him, Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal, has issued another apology on Monday seeking to withdraw the defamation case in Delhi’s Patiala House Court. The development comes after Arvind Kejriwal apologised to the BJP leader unverified allegations made against him.
In a letter to the Union minister, Kejriwal wrote: “I have nothing personal against you. I regret the same. Let us put the incident behind us and bring the court proceedings to a closure. I suggest we should put our energy to serve the people of this country.”
The AAP leader had reportedly tendered the apology on March 16 in the court, where he also expressed regret towards Kapil Sibal and his son Amit Sibal.
His apology was widely condemned by AAP MLAs in Punjab. “There was only one opinion of all the MLAs here today. All of them condemned (Kejriwal) apology. Moreover, we were not taken into confidence before he tendered an apology,” said AAP MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira.
