claims the BJP has set aside Rs 800 crore to bring down the Delhi government, by buying 40 MLAs for Rs 40 crore each. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Thursday alleged the BJP had set aside Rs 800 crore to buy 40 AAP MLAs in a bid to topple his government. In a tweet, Kejriwal said, “They have kept aside Rs 800 crore to bring down the Delhi government — Rs 20 crore per MLA. The country wants to know, whose money is it, and where is it kept. None of our MLAs will break. The government is stable. The good work in Delhi will continue.”
Earlier this morning, all AAP MLAs met at Kejriwal’s residence to formulate a strategy to counter the alleged efforts by the BJP to buy MLAs. Later, party leaders went to Rajghat, the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi, to “pray for the failure of the BJP’s Operation Lotus”. At Rajghat, Kejriwal said nothing was recovered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) during its raid at Deputy CM Manish Sisodia’s residence earlier this week.
In response to AAP’s allegations, BJP MP Parvesh Verma accusing the party of “polluting Rajghat”. He said, “Our karyakartas will have to cleanse it with Ganga jal.” Verma refused to comment on the AAP’s claims that BJP was trying to buy its MLAs.
