New Delhi: The AAP Wednesday said it has requested Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung to revise the letter sent to President Pranab Mukherjee about permission to invite the BJP to form government in Delhi.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has accused the BJP of indulging in horse-trading, and sought dissolution of the assembly.
After meeting Jung here, AAP leader Manish Sisodia said they submitted a copy of the sting operation which shows AAP legislator Dinesh Mohaniya being offered a bribe of Rs.4 crore to quit the assembly to improve the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) chances of forming a government in Delhi.
“So, we requested him (Jung) to revise the letter sent to the president seeking his permission to invite the BJP to form the government in Delhi, as the party is trying to form a government through horse-trading,” Sisodia told the media.
Sisodia also said that if the government is formed through horse-trading, its problems such as corruption, school education and price rise will not be solved.
“If such a government is formed in Delhi, then it will be a burden on the people of Delhi… So, we have requested the Lt. Governor to revise the contents of his letter and this time seek dissolution of the assembly,” he said.
Delhi was placed under President’s rule after AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal quit as chief minister Feb 14 this year.
