New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been hit by another crisis after its member Anjali Damania quit the party alleging horse-trading by Arvind Kejriwal.
Here are the main points from the conversation allegedly between Kejriwal and former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg.
Kejriwal : AAP is prepared to take support from the 8 Congress MLAs.
Kejriwal: Manish Sisodia has been in touch with Congress MLAs but they don't seem to be keen on supporting AAP.
Garg: All the 8 Congress MLAs are ready to support AAP but Ajay Maken and Randeep Surjewala are creating obstacles.
Kejriwal: Because of the problems being created by Maken, Congress MLAs have not been able to take a final decision.
Kejriwal: We should not speak out at this time. We should speak out only if the Congress MLAs say publicly that they are prepared to support us.
Garg: We have to move fast else the Lt Governor may announce dissolution of the Assembly.
Garg: We have to move very carefully so that the Cong MLAs don't end up doing a sting on us.
Kejriwal: What you should do is to break the Congress and get six MLAs to float their own party. They can then support AAP from the outside.
Kejriwal: We have been trying for one and a half months now, but we haven't been able to crack a deal with the Congress so far.
Kejriwal: These 6 MLAs were planning to join the BJP but they could not do so because three of them are Muslims. We should get them to now support AAP.
Garg: Ok I will get this going.
