Kejriwal alleges BJP 'trying to poach MLAs': 'They have contacted 7 legislators and offered Rs 25 crore'

"Recently they contacted our 7 Delhi MLAs and said they will arrest Kejriwal after a few days... They claimed to have held talks with 21 MLAs. After that, they will topple the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi... They will give Rs 25 crore and contest the elections on BJP ticket,” he tweeted.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday alleged that the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) is trying to poach AAP MLAs and break his party ahead of Lok Sabha elections.

In a long post on X, AAP national convenor said, "Although they claim that they have contacted 21 MLAs but as per our information they has contacted only 7 MLAs so far and all of them refused. This means that I am not being arrested to investigate any liquor scam but they are conspiring to topple the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi. In the last nine years, they hatched many conspiracies to topple our government. But they did not get any success. God and the people always supported us. All our MLAs are also strongly together. This time also these people will fail in their nefarious intentions.

These people know how much work our government has done for the people of Delhi. Despite all the obstacles created by them, we have accomplished so much. The people of Delhi love “AAP” immensely. Therefore, it is not in their power to defeat AAP in the elections. So they want to topple the government by arresting them on the pretext of a fake liquor scam." 

Refuting the allegation, Delhi BJP secretary Harish Khurana challenged AAP to name the MLAs and also those who contacted them. He said AAP was trying to shift focus from Kejriwal skipping ED summons for questioning in the liquor scam.
