Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA from Kasturba Nagar, Madan Lal has accused the BJP of offering him Rupees. 20 crore to split his party and pull down the AAP government in Delhi. However, Madan Lal said he has no proof to back his allegations.
Addressing a press conference, Madan Lal said, “BJP approached me first on December 7, a day before the Delhi poll results were announced. A man said he would set up my meeting with Arun Jaitley. I told him to shut up and disconnected. The next I was approached 10 days ago, this time by two men claiming to know Narendra Modi. if I break away with nine MLAs and form a new party, you can take power with BJP support. We will make you Chief Minister. They said we will also give you 20-20. I asked, 20 lakhs? They said no, 20 crores and the AAP MLAs who wanted to be cabinet ministers would be paid Rs 10 crore each.”
Madan Lal also said that he informed his party's high command over this issue. AAP has accused Mr Modi and Mr Jaitley of conspiring to pull down Mr Kejriwal's government.
In response to this BJP leader Arun Jaitely rubbished all the allegations in his micro blogging account. He tweeted, “Rubbish claims by AAP. AAP's alternative politics includes a fundamental right to falsehood and lies.”
