Congress calls for judicial probe over Aam Aadmi Party charge against BJP

Friday, 8 August 2014 - 9:59pm IST | Place: New Delhi | Agency: PTI

Congress on Friday demanded a judicial inquiry into the allegations by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was trying to "buy its MLAs" even as it claimed that the parties were "two sides of the same coin".

"Congress had already on August 4 revealed that 15 AAP MLAs are in touch with BJP regarding government formation in the national capital. A judicial inquiry must be conducted in the matter and the main person behind the scene should be arrested," DPCC chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma said here.

"With new allegations, it has now been proved that BJP and AAP are not serious about addressing problems of Delhiites. Both parties are these days just interested in forming the government in Delhi.
"AAP and BJP are two sides of the same coin," Sharma added.

Meanwhile, lashing out at BJP over the issue of e-rickshaws, Sharma said the Centre should immediately provide relief to the lakhs of persons who drive these vehicles. "BJP is against the operation of e-rickshaws and just doing politics over the matter. Around 2.5 lakh drivers of these vehicles have been unemployed ahead of the festive season due to the saffron party," Sharma alleged.
