New Delhi: Shortly after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas claimed that a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP had offered him the post of Delhi chief minister if he joined the saffron party to help it form government , BJP national spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said that party will take whatever action is required against him.
Lekhi further said that it seems that AAP is facing internal conflict.
“It seems that AAP is facing internal conflict. We will take whatever action is required against him,” Lekhi said.

Vishwas stoked controversy after he claimed, while speaking to a leading newspaper, that a BJP MP had met him on May 19 at his residence and persuaded him to join the party.
“The MP claimed he was meeting me at the behest of top BJP leaders and offered him the chief minister's post,” Vishwas reportedly said.
Reacting strongly, Delhi BJP Chief Satish Upadhyay accused the AAP leader of making baseless allegations for political gain and challenged him to provide proof, if he has any to substantiate his claim.
Meanwhile, the Congress too ridiculed Vishwas' allegations as the party said that AAP leaders were making such charges to stay politically relevant. The party asked Vishwas to reveal the name of the BJP MP who made the offer.
