Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said some of his AAP MLAs have been threatened and offered bribes to break the government.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday claimed that there has been a conspiracy to topple his government and recently, seven Aam Aadmi Party MLAs were offered ₹25 crore to join the Bharatiya Janata Party.

“Recently they contacted our 7 MLAs in Delhi and said ‘we will arrest Kejriwal after a few days. After that, we will break the MLAs. Talks have been held with 21 MLAs. Talking to others also. After that, we will topple the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi. you can also come. Will give ₹25 crore and contest the elections on BJP ticket,” Arvind Kejriwal wrote on social media X.

“Although they claimed that 21 MLAs have been approached, but as per our information, they has contacted only seven MLAs so far and all of them have refused (to join the BJP),” Kejriwal added.

Kejriwal added that this means that “I am not being arrested to investigate any liquor scam but they are conspiring to topple the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi”.

“In the last nine years, they hatched many conspiracies to topple our government. But they did not get any success. God and the people always supported us. All our MLAs are also strongly together. This time also these people will fail in their nefarious intentions,” the Delhi chief minister claimed.

Kejriwal said “these people” know how much work his government has done for the people of Delhi. “Despite all the obstacles created by them, we have accomplished so much. The people of Delhi love AAP immensely. Therefore, it is not in their power to defeat the AAP in the elections. So they want to topple the government by arresting them on the pretext of a fake liquor scam,” the AAP national convenor said.

The Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party, however, rubbished the allegation and challenged the AAP to name the MLAs and the people who contacted them with the offer.

At a press conference, Delhi minister Atishi alleged that the BJP has launched ‘Operation Lotus 2.0’ in Delhi. “They had made a similar attempt to poach AAP MLAs last year by offering them money but failed,” she claimed.

Rejecting the allegation, Delhi BJP secretary Harish Khurana challenged Atishi to name the MLAs contacted and also those who reached out to them with the offer.

Khurana added that the AAP was trying to shift focus from Kejriwal skipping Enforcement Directorate summons for questioning in the liquor scam.
