New Delhi, India (September 09, 2014): In a bid to prevent BJP from forming government in Delhi using alleged dishonest means, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said it is in contact with Congress, JD(U) and some “honest” BJP legislators to prevent the saffron party from forming government in Delhi through “ill means”.
AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal today claimed that the BJP was in touch with 15 AAP MLAs and he will come out with “more sting tapes if the need arises”.
“I want to make it very clear that AAP is in touch with all the parties…With (independent MLA from Mundka) Rambeer Shokeen, (JDU MLA) Shoaib Iqbal, (expelled AAP MLA Vinod Kumar) Binny, the Congress and even some honest MLAs from the BJP.
“By saying this we make it clear that we are not aiming to form the government, but we want to stop the BJP from forming the government through dishonest means. We are in favour of elections,” Kejriwal said.
Hitting back at AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal for his comments that the party would not let BJP form the government in Delhi at any cost, the saffron outfit today claimed these remarks reflect his “desperation”.
“Kejriwal’s statement shows only his desperation. BJP is not going to form the government in the national capital via the back door. Instead AAP is adopting such tactics and meeting with Independent MLAs as they are greedy for power and don’t believe in the Indian constitution,” Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay told reporters in Delhi.
“They (AAP) are just doing this because they want to stay in the news,” the Delhi BJP chief added.
The escalation of the war of words between the two parties comes a day after AAP released a video of a purported sting operation showing Delhi BJP Vice President Sher Singh Dagar offering Rs 4 crore to an AAP MLA to switch sides.
