Kejriwal's apology drew flak response from party's Punjab unit leaders who labeled it a "meek surrender".

The Punjab Aam Aadmi Party has openly revolted against its national convenor Arvind Kejriwal following his apology to Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia for making "unfounded" allegations of drug trade.

They also said that state unit leaders were now facing allegations whether Kejriwal had entered into an understanding with Akali Dal by tendering apology to Majithia in defamation case. These statements became a political issue. In his apology, Kejriwal said he had learnt that his allegations were unfounded. "I hereby withdraw all my statements and allegations made against you and apologise for the same", Kejriwal said.

Talking to reporters on Thursday evening, Majethia said he was grateful that truth had won and Kejriwal had realised his mistake. This defamation case is only one of the series of such cases he has accumulated since entering politics.

Kejriwal is the chief minister of New Delhi. "We in Punjab have not been taken into loop". "Shocked and disappointed to know about the apology tendered by Arvind Kejriwal 2 Majithia".

'Tomb Raider' Movie Review: Alicia Vikander's Terrific in Action-Hero Mode
That the production put her in cargo trousers for the duration and not the Jolie short-shorts is perhaps a sign of progress too . Right from Vikander being body-shamed to her flaws being counted out, the movie has created seen enough buzz 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". Majority of AAP MLAs are in favour of splitting away from the party, according to Lok Insaaf Party President Simarjit Singh Bains.

The strategy to wriggle out from around two dozen defamation suits comes close on the heels of AAP's latest troubles in Delhi where its government is on the back-foot over the "attack" on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by party MLAs in the presence of Kejriwal. "However, we will fight for people in court", Delhi's deputy chief minister Sisodia said on the apology to Majithia.

AAP's Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, meanwhile, reiterated that Majithia was a "smuggler" and "deserves to be in jail".

"But no consensus was achieved on breaking away as many MLAs felt that views should be taken from volunteers and constituents before taking any further decision". We haven't been consulted on this meek surrender by a leader of his stature. The AAP had made grandiose claims of cleaning up the system, and touted itself as the only party willing to take on the corrupt in high places.
