Arvind Kejriwal releases new video, claims BJP poaching AAP MLAs

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal released a video on Monday alleging that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Sher Singh Dagar tried to bribe their MLAs in a bid to help his party form government in Delhi.

“The dirty game being played by the BJP has been exposed. BJP MP Sher Singh Dagar had tried to bribe our MLAs,” Kejriwal said while addressing a press conference at Delhi's Constitution Club. 

The party further said that Dagar had offered around Rs 4 crore to AAP MLA Dinesh Mohania at his residence.

“BJP should stop politics of horse-trading as everything is not for sale,” Mohania said.

The AAP chief said that the raw footage of the video will be submitted to the Supreme Court on Tuesday. They will then lodge an FIR with the police and approach election commission, he added.

He also posted the link of the alleged 'sting video' on his Twitter website.

Meanwhile, BJP has denied the accusations and said that AAP only believes in making allegations. The party also called for the authenticity of the video to be verified also. 

BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy retorted that the alleged sting by AAP is a drama. “BJP does not need to buy anyone. Why take Arvind Kejriwal seriously?” Swamy asked.

Kejriwal's claims comes a day after BJP chief Amit Shah said that the party should form the government in Delhi as it has the required number of members, as per news reports.

AAP had earlier met President Pranab Mukherjee and urged him to not allow Lt Governor Najeeb Jung to invite BJP to form a government in Delhi.
