New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal will on Thursday meet Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi to submit a video of a "sting operation" in which BJP's Delhi unit vice president Sher Singh Dagar allegedly offered bribe to AAP MLA from Sangam Vihar Dinesh Mohania to switch sides.

It is being learnt that the former Delhi chief minister is expected to demand filing of FIR against the BJP leader.

The AAP on Wednesday said it has requested Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung to revise the letter sent to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking permission to invite the BJP to form government in Delhi.

The AAP has accused the BJP of indulging in horse-trading, and sought dissolution of the Assembly.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Centre to apprise it on October 10 the outcome of the process undertaken by Lt Governor Najeeb Jung on government formation in Delhi, saying "alleged horse-trading" will continue if a decision is not taken.

In the 2012 Delhi polls, while BJP had won 31 seats in the 70-member house, AAP had won 28 seats and Congress managed to bag only 8.

BJP, the single party has 28 MLAs in a House of 70. Its ally Akali Dal has one MLA. BJP had won 31 seats but three party legislators Harsh Vardhan, Ramesh Bidhuri and Pervesh Verma were elected to Lok Sabha and had to resign their Assembly seats.

Delhi has been under President's rule since February 17 following resignation of Arvind Kejriwal-led-AAP government which was in power for 49 days.

The government led by Kejriwal had resigned on February 14 after the party's pet project, the Janlokpal Bill, could not be passed due to opposition from BJP and Congress.

President's Rule was imposed in Delhi on February 17. The Lt Governor had not favoured dissolution of the Delhi Assembly as recommended by the Council of Ministers headed by Kejriwal and kept the Assembly in suspended animation.
