ONI Bureau: There is a huge crisis in the Aam Aadmi Party after Arvind Kejriwal issued an unconditional apology to former Punjab Minister and Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia to get relief in defamation suit.
Kejriwal, who had accused Majithia of being involved in drug racket, apologised saying the allegations levelled against him were unfounded. Soon after Kejriwal’s apology, MLAs and AAP leaders expressed huge resentment. Senior leader Bhagwant Mann resigned as the Punjab Unit President.
Here are some reactions on Social Media:

Arvind kejriwal' apology to Bikram majithia in the defamation case on drugs is a let down to the people, especially the youth of punjab. We in punjab have not been taken into the loop. Our fight for punjab continues.#punjabdrugs
