Manish Sisodia plays audio to show ‘BJP man’ allegedly discussing party’s bid to poach AAP MLAs | Delhi News


NEW DELHI: Manish Sisodia, the deputy chief minister of Delhi, on Saturday presented an audio clip of an accused BJP member allegedly discussing the party’s attempt to poach AAP MLAs in the capital.
He then requested the arrest of home minister Amit Shah, if he was connected to the incident.
At a press conference, the senior AAP leader played the audio clip and identified the BJP “dalal” (broker) as one of the three people detained in Telangana for allegedly trying to oust the state’s ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi MLAs.
There was no immediate reaction from the BJP or Shah.
“In this audio, the BJP’s dalal (broker) can be heard luring a (TRS) MLA to the BJP, saying they were also trying to poach 43 Delhi MLAs and that money had been kept aside for this purpose. He is also saying that he has spoken with Shah and BL Santosh,” Sisodia said.
“If it is Home Minister Amit Shah the BJP’s dalal is referring to, he should immediately be arrested and questioned,” the Delhi deputy chief minister demanded.
He said the audio tape was a “proof” of the BJP’s failed attempt to poach AAP MLAs in Delhi and Punjab and demanded a probe by the Enforcement Directorate into the matter.
“It is very dangerous for a country if its home minister is involved in such a conspiracy,” Sisodia said.
