 There were large protests this morning at the home of BJP leader Arun Jaitley, who has been accused by the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP of offering its members bribes to bring down the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal.

AAP has offered no evidence in support of its allegations. Mr Jaitley has dismissed the charges as baseless. "Rubbish claims by AAP. AAP's alternative politics includes a fundamental right to falsehood and lies," Mr had Jaitley. And also called them a party full of lies. 

While AAP claimed that Congress and BJP were trying to pay bribes to topple AAP government. 

Two groups of protesters battled outside Mr Jaitley's home today, with workers of his BJP countering slogan-shouting AAP members and holding up banners against Mr Kejriwal.

Both the groups are staging a protest amidst heavy police barricading. 

Mr Kejriwal heads a minority government. Yesterday, one of his 27 lawmakers, Madan Lal, told reporters that he had been approached by men who claimed they were representing Mr Jaitley and the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. Mr Lal claims that the intermediaries offered him 20 crores in return for arranging a split with AAP. 

In December, AAP registered a bright performance in the first election it contested, placing second in Delhi. It formed a government with support from Congress and BJP is in opposition.
