Amritsar: A local court on Friday framed charges against AAP Convenor Arvind Kejriwal and leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashish Khetan in a criminal defamation case filed against them by Punjab Revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia.
Majithia outside the court room said, “Today is a very emotional day for me. This battle has all along been one of standing up to one’s honour. My stand has finally been vindicated. Truth has won. I stand on the side of truth. Kejriwal and his gang have been exposed as liars and purveyors of deceit.”
Majithia said the framing of charges against the top AAP leadership was also a victory for Punjabis who had won back their honour. “Now the AAP has no moral right to represent Punjabis. Its leaders should simply pack up their bags and go back to Delhi and Eastern Uttar Pradesh and let Punjabis decide their own fate.”
He said no public servant had any moral right to remain in office after framing of charges against him by the courts of the land. “If you do not resign even now it will prove that you are not loyal to your own party’s constitution. But I think it is too much to expect from you to act honourably. You threw out AAP founders like Prashant Bhushan and Yogender Yadav,” he said.
Explaining his stand to the media, Majithia said he would take his battle to its logical conclusion.
