New Delhi, Aug 30: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh on Saturday said BJP MP Manoj Tiwari had met his colleague Kumar Vishwas in the night of May 19, three days after the results of the 2014 Lok Sabha results were declared, and said if he could gather 18 MLAs, the BJP would make him the chief minister of Delhi.

Another AAP leader and former law minister of Delhi Somnath Bharti supported Vishwas and accused the BJP of betraying people with false promises. "As a young party, we are yet to learn the tricks but people know what the BJP is capable of," he told Times Now news channel.

Tiwari, who is also a Bhojpuri actor, refused the allegations and asked the AAP to produce evidence against him. He said he was nobody to offer the chief minister's post, adding that he did not even meet Vishwas as a friend after their thoughts and parties changed.

The BJP also refuted Vishwas's claims and alleged AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal had prepared a new script for Vishwas. It said Vishwas was trying to remain in the news by making such allegations.

The Congress also criticised Vishwas and said the AAP was adopting means to stay relevant.

Delhi has been under the President's Rule since February 17 after the AAP-led government of Kejriwal quit power after failing to pass its Janlokpal Bill. The AAP then contested the Lok Sabha election but could win just four seats. Both Vishwas and Kejriwal lost in Amethi and Varanasi, against Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi, respectively.
