New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANS) AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday said it was the BJP which contacted its legislator Dinesh Mohaniya to induce him to quit the Delhi assembly, not the other way round.
BJP vice president Sher Singh Dagar, caught in a video offering bribe money to Mohaniya, claimed Monday that Mohaniya had come to meet him as he wanted to join the Bharatiya Janata Party.
“Our MLA … was contacted (by the BJP). And even if he went on his own, why was he offered Rs.4 crore? It is clear our MLA was being poached,” Kejriwal said.
“It’s sad that the BJP is indulging in horse-trading to form a government in Delhi,” the former Delhi chief minister added.
Delhi has been under President’s rule after Kejriwal resigned as chief minister in February.
