The Congress has demanded an impartial inquiry into the sting operation allegedly showing a BJP leader offering money to an AAP MLA to make him resign from his party.
The party said a criminal case should be registered in the case. Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh said the sting operation has exposed the BJP’s bid to buy MLAs in an unconstitutional and unethical manner to form its government in Delhi.
“The BJP is on a buying spree. The Aam Aadmi Party leaders are also playing back-door politics to help the BJP form the government. A senior leader who had contested the assembly elections and now holds the post of vice-president cannot take such an important decision without having support from seniors of his party,” Singh said.
In a joint statement, Singh and Delhi Congress’ chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma said the leaders of the BJP as well as AAP who were part of the sting operation should go through the lie-detector test so that the names of the real culprits could come out.
Demanding immediate dissolution of Delhi Assembly and fresh polls in Delhi, the two leaders said the BJP was scared of facing re-elections.
They said the BJP government at the Centre should immediately take action against its functionaries who are in this scandal. Repeating the party’s stand, Sharma said re-election in Delhi was inevitable now.
“The Congress is ready to face fresh elections. It is time Delhi gets an elected government,” said Sharma.
