NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Minister Atishi Marlena on Tuesday alleged that the BJP was attempting to sabotage the Delhi government. Speaking at a press conference in Delhi, Atishi alleged that there was immense pressure on her to join the BJP and that some BJP leaders approached her with the demand through a friend of her.

"I received an offer saying that they will help me secure my political future. They also threatened me saying that the ED would arrest me within a month if I did not join the BJP. Aam Aadmi will not split. We will not join the BJP even if we are threatened. A move is underway to arrest me, Saurabh Bhardwaj, Raghav Chadha and Durgesh Pathak before the Lok Sabha elections," Atishi said.

Earlier, AAP leader Rituraj Jha had also revealed that the BJP had initiated efforts to bring Aam Aadmi leaders to the BJP camp by offering money. Jha alleged that the BJP had promised to pay Rs 25 crore to each if ten AAP MLAs were brought to the BJP. He also alleged that the BJP even offered to make him a minister in the BJP government if he came out of the AAP after destroying the AAP government in Delhi.

The BJP has already begun 'Operation Lotus'. However, no AAP MLA will leave the party and join the BJP, Jha said. Meanwhile, Delhi MLA and BJP spokesperson Abhay Verma said that AAP is making allegations to divert attention from Kejriwal's arrest.
