Former AAP MLA alleges Kejriwal had given his consent to fake calls made to party MLAs in the name of BJP leaders.
Former Aam Aadmi Party MLA Rajesh Garg has alleged that during government formation, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal had given his consent to fake calls made to party MLAs in the name of senior BJP leaders Nitin Gadkari and Arun Jaitley offering them money to support the BJP.
Garg has alleged that the plan was to accuse the Bharatiya Janata Party of horse-trading.
The former AAP MLA said that he, along with other MLAs, had received calls offering money to support the Bharatiya Janata Party and this was done with Arvind Kejriwal’s consent.
He also alleged that all the calls were made through unknown numbers.
“The calls were made with Arvind Kejriwal’s consent from private numbers. We have evidence regarding the same,” Rajesh Garg said, claiming that he had also received a similar call.
“People called for the AAP’s NC meeting were their (Arvind and team) ‘yes men’, many important people were not called,” Garg said.
“During initial phase of government formation, I myself received a call which said they were calling from Jaitley-ji’s office. I was offered Rs 10 crore for supporting the BJP. We had a party meeting at the Constitution Club. I had got it from a private number,” he added.
He further said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took the whole matter very lightly and laughed it off.
The ex-AAP MLA further said he had also lodged a complaint with the police in this regard.
