Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday met Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and submitted a CD of a 'sting operation' which purportedly showed a senior Delhi BJP leader trying to poach an AAP MLA.
AAP also urged the Lt Governor to revise his September 4 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 Rs 4 crore.
We requested the L-G to watch the video. We also asked him to revise the September 4 letter he sent to President Mukherjee in which, in a way, he has sought permission to invite BJP for government formation," said senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia who accompanied Kejriwal during the meeting.
The AAP leader accused BJP of indulging in horse-trading to form government in Delhi.
"Even if 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 of Delhi and forming government this way will be betraying them," Sisodia said.
At the meeting, AAP asked the Lt Governor 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.
