According to the apology letter, CM Kejriwal has retracted his allegations that he made against the former Punjab Minister and has further offered his regret.
During the 2017 Punjab elections, Kejriwal had attacked the Punjab government and particularly Majithia for being hand in glove with the drug mafia in the state.
Majithia had filed a defamation case against the Aam Aadmi Party chief and others following the allegation made during campaigning in the Punjab assembly elections.
