BJP trying to poach AAP legislators: Alka Lamba

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Alka Lamba has claimed that Bharatiya Janata Party offered her Lok Sabha Election ticket if she defected to the BJP.

She accused the BJP of trying to poach AAP legislators.

Lamba, a legislator from Chandni Chowk, claimed she received a call from a BJP person, who offered her a Lok Sabha ticket and a similar position as that of Shazia Ilmi.

"The BJP is making its leaders call up AAP MLAs and tell them that the party is coming to an end. You (AAP MLAs) will be given an MP ticket or an important position in the government. We can do this for you by telling (BJP president) Amit Shah.

"The BJP leader said Modi-ji will soon impose the President's Rule in Delhi just like it did in Arunchal Pradesh and Uttarakhand," Lamba said in a series of tweets.

Lamba said she spoke to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and handed over details of her conversation with the BJP leader.
