Grewal MLA Sharanjit Singh Dhillon and Youth Akali Dal leader Parminder Brar — were present in court for the hearing which went on for over four hours AAP leader Sanjay Singh was absent from Monday’s hearing as his counsel Himmat Singh Shergill had sought an exemption on his behalf Meanwhile Majithia said that it was a “well-planned conspiracy of AAP against me”’ to “defame me as as a ‘drug lord’” for “cheap politics” Majithia’s counsel Damanbir Singh Sobti submitted that “during Punjab elections this year AAP found no other way to detach youths from SAD and since he (Majithia) was considered a role model by youths they defamed him as a ‘drug lord’ for cheap politics” Meanwhile the four other Akali leaders told the court that they “stand testimony to the fact that news stories in newspapers calling Majithia a drug supplier were largely circulated and several lakhs of people believed them to be true” They further submitted that “even they developed a distrust for Majithia after reading those articles and confronted him to know the truth” A visibly emotional Majithia said he “wants justice for his children and parents who too have been affected by the conspiracy to defame him” “We want justice to live with dignity” he said The court fixed the next hearing for January 24 when Majithia will be cross-examined by Sanjay Singh’s counsel Himmat Singh Shergill AAP counsel said “We will be cross-examining Majithia during the next hearing” Asked about the reason for Sanjay Singh’s absence in court he said “He is busy with party-related work as the Gujarat polls are near” Majithia had filed defamation suit against Sanjay Singh in the Ludhiana court on January 12 under sections 499 and 500 of IPC Later speaking to The Indian Express Majithia said “The AAP leader is now running
