Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia, claimed that the BJP has offered Rs. 10 crore each to seven AAP legislators, to move over to BJP. This  statement comes two days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at a rally in West Bengal, placed the media in a frenzy by saying that 40 MLAs of the Trinamool Congress were in touch with him, and were planning to switch to the BJP after the elections. 
 
Sisodia also said that “it does not suit the PM to make such comments”, and that Modi should realize that India is a democratic country, and he too has been elected to his post, through a democratic process. The TMC has allegedly written a letter to the Election Commission accusing the PM of violating the Model Code of Conduct. 
 
The former popular news journalist went on to accuse the BJP of “horse-trading”, as the saffron party does not have any “development issue to raise”. 
 
In response, BJP media head and Delhi spokesperson Ashok Goyal, dismissed the claims, labelling it a “bizarre allegation”, and saying that AAP leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is unable to “stop the rebellion of  AAP MLAs”, and is dragging BJP into the internal problems of the party.
