Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal apologized to former Punjab revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Thursday saying that he has now learned that the drug trade allegations were unfounded.

In his letter to Majithia, Kejriwal wrote, “In the recent past, I made certain statements and allegations against you regarding your alleged involvement in drug trade. These statements became a political issue. Now, I’ve learnt that allegations are unfounded.”

“Hence, there should be no politics on such issues. I hereby withdrew all my statements and allegations made against you and apologise for the same,” read the statement.

A copy of the apology was also furnished by the Delhi CM to the court. Majithia, himself confirmed this development on his official Twitter handle.

“CM Arvind Kejriwal has tendered an apology to me in the court, for all the baseless and false allegations he and his party levelled against me in drug issue. My mother suffered the most due to all this and this apology is a vindication of her faith in Waheguru’s power of justice,” wrote Majithia.

The Delhi Chief Minister had accused the Prakash Singh Badal government, especially Majithia, of patronising drug mafia and criminals while campaigning for the Punjab Assembly elections. Following which, Majithia had filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and two other AAP leaders, Sanjay Singh and Ashish Khetan, in May 2016.
