Arvind Kejriwal, in a reference to the BJP, said today there is a “serial killer in town, it murders all governments”.
“The BJP has dismantled several governments and now they have turned toward Delhi. There is a serial killer of governments in our country. The pattern is the same,” the Delhi Chief Minister said, addressing a special session of the Delhi assembly.
The BJP has bought 277 MLAs in recent years, Mr Kejriwal said.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has called the session to discuss what it alleges is the BJP’s “Operation Lotus” in Delhi.
AAP has alleged that the BJP is trying to bribe 40 MLAs to dump the party in an attempt to topple Arvind Kejriwal’s government. The BJP has offered Rs 20 crore to MLAs to switch, Mr Kejriwal alleges.
Mr Kejriwal questioned how the BJP had so much money to buy MLAs.
“All this money from GST (Goods and Services Tax) and inflation is being spent for two things – buying MLAs and to write off loans of billionaire friends of the government,” said Mr Kejriwal.
