This response from the Union Minister comes a day after AAP convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal issued an apology to former Punjab minister Bikram Singh Majithia for his "drug trade" remarks.
The Union Minister further averred that the AAP had built their entire election campaign in Punjab around lies.
Kejriwal had earlier accused Majithia of being allegedly involved in drug trade.
Thereafter, Majithia reportedly filed a criminal defamation case in May 2016 against Kejriwal and AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashish Khetan for falsely linking him to the drug trade and tarnishing his image.
However, on Thursday, the AAP chief apologised in court for his "unfounded allegations" and announced the withdrawal of all his statements. He also submitted a copy of the apology letter to the court. (ANI)
