New Delhi: In a recent audio clip uploaded on social-networking sites by Aam Aadmi Party, the party`s convenor Arvind Kejriwal has accused the BJP of indulging in horse-trading to lure AAP MLAs in its favour in Delhi Assembly.

The former Delhi chief minister, in the 45 seconds audio clip, said that the BJP is resorting to dishonest methods to form the government in the nation`s capital. He added that BJP leaders were offering Rs 20 crore each to many AAP MLAs.

He also said that if this is how the government will form there will be hike in power tariffs, inflation and water theft. He further said that women security will be at stake.

On the other hand, Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay on Tuesday held discussions with the party`s MPs in the city on whether the party should form a government or go for fresh elections.

In the Delhi`s Assembly elections held in December 2013, Kejriwal-led AAP emerge as the second-largest party after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The AAP won 28 seats, the BJP won 31, while the Congress could bag only 8 seats.

Thwarted from introducing the Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill, Kejriwal resigned 49 days after he became Chief Minister and recommended the dissolution of the State Assembly.

At present, Delhi is under President`s rule.
