A day after Delhi CM and AAP chief apologize to SAD leader Bikram Majithia, Aam Aadmi Party's Punjab chief Bhagwant Mann resigned on Friday. Kejriwal tendered his apology to Majithia for having leveled 'unfound' allegations related to involvement in drugs trade against Shiromani Akali Dal leader.

Bhagwat Mann took to his Facebook page and gave this information about his resignation. Mann wrote that I am resigning from the Aam Aadmi Party's headquarters, but I will continue to fight against the drug mafia in Punjab and the fear of getting along with people. As a true Punjab, the war will continue.

Bhagwant Mann tweeted, I m resigning as a president of AAP Punjab ...but my fight against drug mafia and all kind of corruption in Punjab will continue as an “Aam Aadmi “ of Punjab.

The Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal apologized in a case written by Akali Dal leader Bikram Majithia whose information was given by Majithia during the press conference. There is a lot of resentment in the Punjab unit of the Aam Aadmi Party on this matter.

The AAP chief's sudden move has given rise to another politico-crisis within the party leaders. Punjab's AAP party unit leaders called the apology a 'meek surrender' and alleged that Kejriwal has let down Punjab's AAP leaders. Punjab's leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira said that Kejriwal has taken this step without discussing with the party.
