AAP workers protest outside Arun Jaitley's residence
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers on Tuesday protested outside the residence of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley and alleged that he is trying to destabilize the AAP-led Delhi Government.
"The BJP is trying to bribe our MLAs. They have stooped so low. They are trying to defame a popular person like Kejriwal," said a protestor.
The security outside Jaitley's Kailash Colony residence was tightened earlier, taking in view the protest.
Security personnel and barricades were placed outside Jaitley's residence.
Meanwhile, the BJP workers launched a counter protest and held a protest march in the same area.
"Kejriwal has only lied to the people. He is taking names of big leaders to get big name for himself," alleged a protestor.
On Monday, the AAP had said the BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and Arun Jaitley were trying to destablise the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP Government in the national capital.
"The BJP is scared of the AAP's rising popularity. Narendra Modi, Arun Jaitley and Harshvardhan are conspiring to bring down the Delhi Government," Singh had claimed at a press conference.
AAP had also accused the BJP of acting on behalf of power discoms.
AAP had also said that it has information on Jaitley making attempts to defame the Delhi Government.
AAP MLA from Kasturba Nagar, Madanlal, whose name was doing the rounds in the media for secretly meeting expelled party MLA Vinod Kumar Binny, JD(U) MLA Shoaib Iqbal, SAD MLA Maninder Singh Sirsa, said that he was offered huge amount to support the BJP in forming the government.
He alleged that a person close to Modi had called him and promised him chief ministership, if he gets nine people to join the BJP.
