Majithia files defamation suit against AAP’s Sanjay Singh

Chandigarh: Punjab’s Revenue and Public Relations Minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Tuesday filed a defamation suit against Aam Aadmi Party national spokesperson Sanjay Singh in the Ludhiana court of judicial magistrate Bikramjit Singh.

Majithia claimed that he was defamed by Sanjay who called him a “drug trader”, and said “when AAP will come to power, it will put corrupt Majithia in jail.”

“Not me but Sanjay Singh will now be in the jail,” Majithia told Indian Express.

“Using my fundamental right, I will ensure that this AAP leader who has come from Uttar Pradesh is unable to go back to UP. He will go to jail now. On what basis he called me a drug trader? What their leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is doing on national level, these people are doing it in Punjab. They throw mud on everyone and then walk away as if nothing. But now, it is my responsibility to ensure that this parachute guy, who has landed from UP, next lands in jail after legal process,” said Majithia.

Majithia said that his lawyer Bir Singh Sobti will be producing the newspaper clippings of December 28 when these remarks were made by Sanjay Singh during Jor Mela political conference at Fatehgarh Sahib. Asked only why he is being targeted on drugs issue, Majitha said, “It is bankruptcy of their thought process. In Jagdish Bhola drug case, my name has been cleared by the court. All investigations have proved I am not guilty. Who is Sanjay Singh to defame me then?” Sanjay Singh, meanwhile, said that ‘Majithia should stop diluting issue with UP-Punjab divide.
