Asked whether he was satisfied with Solanki's reply to the notice, Rana said, "Asked to clarify about the utterances, he has apologised. I have received his apology letter and talked to BJP national president M Venkaiah Naidu about it."

He evaded a direct reply when asked whether the prevailing crisis could be deemed as over for the time being.
