Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday approached President Pranab Mukherjee and Delhi police commissioner BS Bassi and submitted a CD of the recorded footage which purportedly shows BJP leader Sher Singh Dagar trying to bribe an AAP MLA.
“AAP submitted to the President a copy of the video CD and the transcript of the sting operation, which caught the Delhi BJP vice-president offering Rs 4 crore bribe to AAP MLA Dinesh Mohania,” said an AAP press release. The CD and transcript was delivered at Rashtrapati Bhawan along with party convenor Arvind Kejriwal’s letter, in which the President has been apprised of the alleged attempts going on to form a government in Delhi through all possible and “illegal” means.
“Kejriwal has appealed to the President to order immediate dissolution of the Delhi assembly to prevent subversion of the Constitution by the BJP,” the release says.
Kejriwal also met Bassi with his party colleague Manish Sisodia, and requested the police to act against Dagar.
“We have submitted the copy of the CD of the sting operation along with a formal complaint and have handed it over to the police commissioner. We have requested him to lodge an FIR and arrest Dagar and question him,” Kejriwal told reporters.
BJP’s Dagar has been vehemently denying the allegations made by AAP.
