Delhi govt officials agree to hold meetings with AAP ministers

Many senior state party leaders not only publically denounced Kejriwal's decision as a "meek surrender", they also accused the top leadership of the party of not keeping them in the loop before the decision to apologise was made.

As many as 20 MLAs, including two legislators of the LIP, took part in the meeting in the morning, even as a few MLAs stayed away from the second round of the meeting held in the evening.

He claimed that Kejriwal's apology only established the fact that the Aam Aadmi Party and the Shiromani Akali Dal had a secret understanding to divide the anti-incumbency votes against the Akalis.

To a related question, Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Singh Khaira said the apology has been condemned across the party's state unit.

"We discussed splitting from the party's Delhi unit and create a separate unit for Punjab".

On the other hand, Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta said that BJP MLAs will bring adjournment motion on a number of issues, including sealing and AAP government's tussle with the bureaucrats.

Kanwar Sandhu said, "We also decided that future meetings with our leadership from Delhi be held in Chandigarh".

AAP MP and Punjab party president, Bhagwant Mann, has resigned from his post, as has his co-president, Aman Arora, while other senior party members have loudly asserted they will continue to fight corruption in the state.

Journalist-turned-politician and AAP MLA Kanwar Sandhu said Arvind Kejriwal's apology to Bikram Majithia in the defamation case on drugs is a let down to the people, especially the youth of Punjab.

"As far as apology of Kejriwal is concerned in defamation case, all party leaders are of the unanimous opinion that Kejriwal sahib should not have tendered apology", said Khaira.

The AAP poll plank in the run-up to the Assembly elections past year revolved largely around eradicating the drug menace. "Special Task Force (STF) had found evidence against Mr. Bikram Majithia in the drug trade that has been submitted in the Punjab and Haryana High Court". In such circumstances, Kejriwal's apology was painful, very unfortunate. "It is like our big leader while showing psychological weakness, has surrendered", added Khaira. "We should sit together and find a solution to it", he said.

Khaira said that he was getting numerous messages from volunteers following the apology by Kejriwal and said that he wanted to ensure that whatever decision is taken, it would be in the interest of Punjab.
