Punjab drugs issue: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday reportedly tendered an apology to former Punjab minister Bikram Singh Majithia in connection with Delhi CM’s allegations against him over drugs issue.

“In the past, I made certain statements & allegations against you regarding your alleged involvement in drugs trade. These statements became a political issue,” Delhi CM in his letter to BS Majithia said. He further wrote, “Now I’ve learned that allegations are unfounded. Hence there should be no politics on such issues.” He added, “I hereby withdraw all my statements & allegations made against you & apologize for them. The damage caused to your esteem, the hurt caused to your family, friends, well-wishers, followed and the loss caused to you is regretted.”

While interacting to the media, Bikram Singh Majithia said, “It is a historical moment for me personally and may be otherwise also where a sitting chief minister has apologised for the remarks he had made.”

Back in March 2016, before the Punjab Assembly elections, the Delhi CM took to Twitter and wrote, “As soon as AAP govt is formed in Punjab, strong action will be taken against Majithia and his allies in drug racket.” In July 2016, the official Twitter handle of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had shared a post saying, “We will say it a thousand times – Bikram Majithia (@bsmajithia) is a smuggler of Drugs. #MajithiaIsSmuggler”
