Failed bid to malign BJP? 'Fake calls offering crores were made with Kejriwal's consent'
New Delhi, March 30: Agony of Aam Aadmi Party will not get over soon. At a time when party is already on slippery wicket due to various warring faction and their no compromising attitude, this will definitely add more to it's cup of woes.
Former party MLA Rajesh Garg on Tuesday levelled serious charges against Arvind Kejriwal and his party leaders.
Garg alleged that he along with some of the party MLAs got fake calls from AAP leadership to support BJP. The leader has said that they(MLAs) were offered 10 crore of money in exchange of their support to Saffron party when Delhi was under President rule.
Former party leader Garg further accused that the fake calls which had got Arvind Kejriwal's consent, were made on the name of BJP's leaders Arun Jaitley and Nitin Gadkari.
"During the initial phase of government formation I got calls from someone who claimed to be calling from Arun Jaitley's office offering Rs 10 crore to support BJP. "I took a screen shot of the number and lodged a police complaint who arrested a person. Then I got a call from Sanjay Singh asking me to withdraw the complaint. I didn't withdraw but they managed to get him released," he alleged.
It must be remembered that in past Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had alleged that BJP leaders were trying to poach AAP MLAs. Before the delhi assembly election, many of the party leaders accused BJP of horse trading.
Earlier, Garg, who quit from party before Delhi Assembly election 2015, had 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.
Releasing the audio clip Garg, former legislator from Rohini, had 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.
