New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley Monday rubbished claims by an AAP lawmaker that the BJP was trying to buy him off and topple the AAP government.

In a tweet, the leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha said: "Rubbish claims by AAP. AAP`s alternative politics includes a fundamental right to falsehood and lies."
Madan Lal, Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Kasturba Nagar, alleged that he had been approached by BJP leaders, including BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, in an attempt to buy him off for Rs.20 crore.

Lal, addressing a press conference, said that Dec 7 he received a call from an "unknown number" and the person on the other end said he would make him talk to a "big person" and mentioned Arun Jaitley`s name.

"I told him to shut up and put down the phone," said Lal.

However, Lal said he has no proof to back his allegations.
