Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today rubbished the allegations of BJP leader Nitin Gadkari that a deal was brokered between AAP and Congress by an industrialist to form the government and asked him to provide evidence.

"This (claim) is all rubbish. It is sad to note that a senior leader like Gadkari is talking nonsense. If he is making claims, then he should also give evidence," Kejriwal told reporters here.

Kejriwal said there is no truth in the allegations and reiterated that there is no "deal" between AAP and Congress or BJP. "There is no deal with Congress or BJP. We are here to work for the people. If we pass the floor test in Delhi assembly, we will run the government otherwise we will once gain go to people," Kejriwal said.

Addressing a workers meeting here today, Gadkari alleged a deal was brokered between AAP and Congress by a reputed industrialist in a hotel to "stop BJP at any cost" from coming to power in Delhi.

Gadkari said he was told by a reputed industrialist of the country how a deal was brokered at a hotel in Delhi.

"One of the big industrialists of our country helped make a deal between Arvind Kejriwal and some senior Congress leaders at a big hotel in Delhi. I was personally told about what talks had transpired in that hotel and what all was eaten by the same person.

"The person who was working as the mediator told me that the policy being made is that BJP has to be stopped at any cost," Gadkari claimed.
