Talks have been held with 21 MLAs. Talking to others also. After that we will topple the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi. you can also come. Will give Rs 25 crore and contest the elections on BJP ticket'.”

Although BJP claims that they contacted 21 MLAs, as per our information, only 7 MLAs were contacted so far and "all of them refused", the Chief Minister said.

Kejriwal termed BJP “powerless” to defeat his party AAP in elections in Delhi and  accused the saffron party of instead resorting  to try to topple his government in the national capital.

"This means that I am not being arrested to investigate any liquor scam but they are conspiring to topple the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi. In the last nine years, they hatched many conspiracies to topple our government. But they did not get any success. God and the people always supported us. All our MLAs are also strongly together. This time also these people will fail in their nefarious intentions," he added.

"These people know how much work our government has done for the people of Delhi. Despite all the obstacles created by them, we have accomplished so much. The people of Delhi love AAP immensely. Therefore, it is not in their power to defeat AAP in the elections. So they want to topple the government by arresting them on the pretext of a fake liquor scam," he said.
