New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday met lieutenant-governor (LG) Najeeb Jung and submitted a CD of a sting operation which purportedly showed a senior Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader trying to poach an AAP MLA (member of the legislative assembly).

AAP also urged Jung to revise his 4 September letter to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking permission to invite the single largest party (BJP) to form government in Delhi.

“We have submitted the CD of our sting operation which shows BJP trying to buy our MLA for 4 crore. We requested the LG to watch the video. We also asked him to revise the 4 September letter he sent to the President in which, in a way, he has sought permission to invite the BJP for government formation," said senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia who accompanied Kejriwal during the meeting.

The AAP leader accused the BJP of horse trading to form government in Delhi. “Even if the BJP forms the government by horse trading, the problems of Delhi will not be solved. Such a government will be a burden on the people and forming government this way will be betraying them," Sisodia said.

At the meeting, the AAP asked the LG to dissolve the Delhi assembly. Sisodia said that if required they will submit the CD to the President.

AAP’s meeting with Jung comes a day after the Supreme Court gave the central government a month to end the deadlock over government formation in Delhi.
