Kejriwal apology row: Sirsa brings out posters against CM

Kejriwal apology row: Sirsa brings out posters against CM

Aam Aadmi Party and its national convener Arvind Kejriwal have been landing in trouble one after another after tendering apology to SAD Leader Bikram Singh Majithia on making the allegation against the latter over drug trafficking.

Giving his views for the first time after party chief Arvind Kejriwal's apology to a former minister which pushed the state unit into a crisis, the former leader of opposition in Punjab Assembly and MLA from Dakha also suggested that the state unit should function like a regional party with total independence on state matters. I feel Kejriwal has murdered AAP in Punjab. In his apology, Kejriwal said he had learnt that his allegations were unfounded.

The Chief Minister had on Thursday apologised to the SAD leader for levelling charges of involvement in the illegal drugs trade in Punjab.

A two-round marathon meeting was held yesterday by the Punjab unit of AAP here in which a resolution on splitting from the Delhi unit and forming a separate unit was discussed, though a final decision was deferred. "It is our right to ask him (Kejriwal) why he tendered the apology", he said. We in Punjab have not been taken into the loop. Consensus could not be built on this even though majority MLAs wanted to break away. "We will also have our own president and own working committee", Sandhu said. "We were told that Arvind ji will also be in the meeting". "Punjab government can't ignore these facts". All the three secured bail and offered to face trial, stating they stood by the allegations made by them.

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

In the interest of full transparency, FDOT released the transcript of a voicemail left on a landline on Tuesday, March 13, by W. The information wasn't received until Friday - a day after the collapse - because the FDOT employee was out of the office.

The state leadership had said the "meek surrender" was painful and very unfortunate.

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.

Earlier, talking to reporters outside his office, Sidhu said, "It is a let down to the people of Punjab".

Kotkapura MLA Kultar Singh Sandhwan added, "We are in the assembly because of people who voted for us". It is not our work to fight in court. "I said we are fighting a war against drugs.".
