A former Akali Dal minister of Punjab, Bikram Singh Majithia, on Thursday made a decision to withdraw his defamation case against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal after the latter apologised for accusing him of involvement in the drug trade past year. He wrote, "Shocked and disappointed to know about the apology tendered by Arvind Kejriwal to Majithia. Hence there should be no politics on such issues".

This is Mr Kejriwal's second apology in the last seven months and is expected to serve as a strategy with which the AAP is expected to deal with the string of defamation suits filed against its leaders.

A statement quoting Majithia said: "It's human nature".

"I hereby withdraw my statements and allegations made against you and apologise for the same" the Delhi CM added.

The AAP later said Kejriwal would opt to "amicably sort out" other legal cases -mostly of defamation - filed against him.

The incident happened around 1:30 p.m. on the pedestrian bridge linking FIU to Sweetwater across Southwest Eighth Street. FIU officials previously told reporters that the bridge was being built using Accelerated Bridge Construction methods.

Another AAP MLA Aman Arora too voiced his dissatisfaction on Kejriwal's apology for Majithia.

The letter states, "In the recent past, I made certain statements and allegations against you regarding your alleged involvement in drug trade". I would only like to tell them that such allegations, which are aimed at tarnishing someone's image, do not benefit any politician or his party. "Person makes mistake and with the grace of God, if I have the ability to forgive and I will forgive", the SAD leader said.

"Were appalled n stunned by the apology of @ArvindKejriwal tendered today, we dont hesitate to admit that we havent been consulted on this meek surrender by a leader of his stature (sic)", Khaira tweeted. Kejriwal on Thursday issued an apology to Majithia for having levelled "unfounded" allegations related to drugs trade, saying that now he has learnt that the drug trade allegations were unfounded. One senior AAP leader, wishing not to be identified, said, "It seems it's time we quit politics altogether". Kejriwal used this to attack him during election rallies in Punjab.

Meanwhile, sources also reveal that it could be possible that the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal may also reach out to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley whom he accused of being involved in corruption when he was heading Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) for a period of 13 long years.
