New Delhi, Jan 29: Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday accused other political parties in Delhi of trying to buy AAP volunteers.
He said he has asked his party volunteers to accept the money offered to them by opposition parties and record the act in the form of a sting to expose the opponents, says media reports.
"Opponents trying to buy our volunteers. I have told volunteers not to refuse anyone who approach. Paise lekar sting kar lo," tweeted Kejriwal on Thursday.
Kejriwal had earlier appealed to people to "accept money doled out by both the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) but cast votes for AAP" in the Delhi assembly elections Feb 7.
Following this, the Election Commission of India sent him a notice on a complaint filed by the Congress. In its complaint the Congress had asked the EC to take criminal action against Kejriwal for inducing voters to accept bribes.

In the complaint, the Congress said, "The statement cannot simply be described as irresponsible but has to be viewed with utmost seriousness and gravity to even take criminal actions against him for the purity for electoral process."
