Barely a month after the AAP won a historic mandate in Delhi, the party has  landed in deep crisis with the release of a recorded telephonic conversation between former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg and Arvind Kejriwal. The alleged tape has recordings of Delhi CM telling Garg to poach six Congress legislators to form the government in the Capital.anjali

Brushing aside the allegations of horse-trading, AAP lashed out at “disgruntled” former party MLA Rajesh Garg saying there was nothing “illegal and immoral” being in touch with Congress MLAs who, the party claimed, anyway wanted to break away.arvind

AAP leader Ashish Khetan tried to justify the move saying that such type of political realignments keep on happening in the country and it cannot be considered as “poaching”.”Using the term horse-trading is far too harsh and irresponsible. We neither lured them with money nor did we offer them with any gains. Political realignments are not new in this country.Political realignment is not poaching. It is a truth in the country while horse-trading is fallacious,” Khetan told reporters, adding BJP and PDP are poles apart ideologically and yet have formed government in Jammu and Kashmir.
