BJP offered us money to switch sides, claim 3 AAP MLAs



As AAP's lone Lok Sabha MP from and an MLA joined the BJP on Wednesday, three AAP legislators from the state claimed that they received calls offering them money to join the BJP.  The Aam Aadmi Party alleged that the BJP had “again started Operation Lotus” in Punjab and was trying to break Arvind Kejriwal's party.

There was no immediate reaction from the BJP on the allegations.  AAP legislator from Jalalabad Jagdeep Kamboj Goldy claimed that he received a call from one Sewak Singh from an number on Tuesday with an offer to join the BJP.

Kamboj told reporters that he asked the MLA to join the BJP and said, “'We will give Rs 20-25 crore'. I said I do not need it.”

Similar claims were made by Balluana MLA Amandeep Singh and Ludhiana South legislator Rajinder Pal Kaur Chhina.  They asserted that they would not leave the party.  Kamboj alleged that the BJP was scared of Kejriwal and AAP.

“Where they fail to win people's mandate, they try to buy MLAs, MP and other AAP leaders at any cost,” he charged.  “Arvind Kejriwal is the leader who fought against corruption in and always did politics of work. But false cases have been registered and many AAP leaders have been sent to jail without any proof,” he said.
