Mann resigns as AAP’s Punjab unit chief; other party leaders in State, ally miffed too

Kejriwal’s 'surrender' to Majithia drew angry reactions not only from Mann but also from other leaders of the Punjab unit of AAP; they said Kejriwal's decision to apologise was a 'letdown'

New Delhi: Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann today resigned as the AAP’s chief, a day after party supremo Arvind Kejriwal’s apology to SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia drew flak from State unit leaders.

Mann announced his decision to resign on Twitter.

“I m (sic) resigning as a president of AAP Punjab … but my fight against drug mafia and all kind (sic) of corruption in will continue as an ‘Aam Aadmi’of Punjab,” he tweeted.

Soon after the tweet, Mann was trolled heavily on Twitter. Three hundred fifty replies to the tweet above were noted at the time of drafting this report.

Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal had yesterday tendered an apology for levelling charges of involvement in drugs trade against former minister Majithia.

In his apology, Kejriwal said he had learnt that his allegations were unfounded.

The Delhi chief minister’s “surrender” drew angry reactions from the AAP unit leaders. They said Kejriwal’s decision to apologise to Majithia was a “letdown”.

Our sources in the AAP said, however, that the chief minister and party’s supreme leader could ill-afford spending so much of time in the courts where Kejriwal was facing a barrage of cases of defamation against him.

Party sources said Kejriwal would apologise to Union ministers Nitin Gadkari, Arun Jaitley and former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit as well. Kejriwal faces over 20 cases of defamation against him.

Former minister Majithia claimed he was grateful that truth had won and Kejriwal had realized his mistake. Since the AAP leader had “tendered his apology”, he did not want to pursue the defamation case filed against him, Majithia said.

Responding to whether they will snap the alliance with AAP, Lok Insaf Party’s Simarjit Singh Bains said that Kejriwal’s apology was a “betrayal to (sic) people of Punjab”. He added that people would “not bear with it”.”This is a non-issue, probably there is a back-door dealing behind it. Our will sit together & take a collective decision,” said Bains.
