New Delhi: On the day when AAP carried out a sting, which purportedly showed state BJP vice-president offering bribe to party MLA to switch side, the legislator had shot a letter to the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court saying if the saffron party offered him bribe, he will accept it to "expose their dirty tricks."
The letter written by AAP legislator Dinesh Mohaniya on September 7 also said if he accepted bribe from Sher Singh Dagar then he should not be considered as crimimal as he was doing so to the blow whistle on "dirty tricks" of the BJP. Party sources said the letter was written to be on the safer side and also keep the judiciary in loop.
"BJP, through its touts, leaders and agents is trying to approach various MLAs of AAP with offers of money. BJP wants AAP MLA to defect and support them on the floor of the house.
"If they approach me, I will accept cash, and expose their dirty tricks as soon as possible, thereafter. If I do so, I should not be treated as an accused or criminal under the law because my intention is not to accept bribe but blow whistle on dirty and illegal activities," party MLA Dinesh Mohaniya said in his letter to the Delhi Chief Justice.
A delegation of AAP, led by party chief Arvind Kejriwal, also met Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi and demanded arrest of Dagar for purportedly offering bribe to AAP MLA in a 'sting'.
In a letter written to Bassi, Mohaniya, an AAP legislator from Sangam Vihar, who was allegedly offered bribe of Rs 4 crore by Dagar, had demanded an FIR to be registered in the case and conduct a thorough investigation in the matter.
"An FIR should be registered in the case and Sher Singh Dagar should be immediately arrested for offering bribe. The police should also investigate on who the high command is as Dagar is seen talking about in the sting.
The high command which he is talking about should also be arrested," the letter said.
Kejriwal also submitted a video copy of the sting. After the sting, the BJP has issued a show cause notice to Dagar and sought his response in this matter.
