New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) which is already facing its worst ever political crisis due to the ongoing infighting has yet again hit the headlines.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh has admitted that he was working as a mediator between AAP and Congress and also claimed that he met ex-Congress MLA Asif Mohammed Khan. In the whole controversy, Khan also try to bring in the Bhartiya Janata Party

Sting row: AAP in damage control mode.
As per a Zeenews report, "In late 2014, (during President's Rule in Delhi), Khan claimed holding meetings with Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh, and said that senior AAP leaders had approached him to explore their party's alliance with Congress.

Responding to Khan's allegations, Singh said the former Congress MLA told him that he had a meeting with BJP leader and Union Surface Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari. The BJP had offered ministry to Congress MLAs, Khan allegedly told Singh."

On Wednesday, former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg had accused AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of indulging in horse trading.

Garg, who quit from party before Delhi Assembly election 2015, has released an audio of a sensation conversation between him and Kejriwal, last year, in which the Delhi CM is reportedly heard talking about buying Congress MLAs in Delhi to form government in the national capital.

Reacting to this audio tape controversy, Sanjay Singh said that the video nowhere suggests horse-trading?

"Where in the tape did Arvind offer money?," asked Singh.

Even AAP had dismissed the audio tape, saying that this was an attempt by others to defame and demean the party.

Releasing the audio clip Garg, former legislator from Rohini, has claimed that the voice in the audio clip is of AAP chief Kejriwal. Garg said that Kejriwal along with Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh tried to lure Congress legislators from Delhi and form government.

Attacking AAP over failing democracy in the party Garg said that party's very foundation has corroded.

Soon after the sting was released in the media, AAP leader in Maharashtra Anjali Damani quit from the party.

"I quit, I have not come into AAP for this nonsense. I believed him, I backed Arvind for principles not Horse-trading," tweeted Damania.

This fresh development has given yet another opportunity to the rival parties to attack AAP and Kejriwal's hypocrisy of accusing other parties of indulging in malpractices and AAP itself is doing the same. Both the BJP as well as Congress has now come out all guns blazing at AAP over this sensational claim.
