"BJP tries to lure opposition MLAs unethically. AAP MLAs refuse," the party tweeted.

Later in the day, the party called a meeting of its MLAs, chaired by party chief Arvind Kejriwal and senior leaders Gopal Rai and Kumar Vishwas to take a stock of the situation.

"BJP has been trying to lure our MLAs by offering money and posts for the last few days. A leader of Shiromani Akali Dal and a person identifying himself as a lawyer and an active BJP member have been instrumental in this. These people have been contacting AAP MLAs but to no avail. All the MLAs reported the matter to party's central leadership," a resolution adopted by AAP said.

Earlier in day, AAP MLA from Rohini, Rajesh Garg, alleged that he was approached by some BJP men thrice since the last three days to quit the party.

"On June 15, when we were holding a dharna against government's drive against e-rickshaws, a man approached me and asked me to join BJP. The next day, another man claiming to be an official of a leading spices company contacted me to join the party.

"On June 17, again an old man came to my office and wanted to speak to me in private. He asked me to join BJP. This conversation was recorded by a television channel," said Garg.

AAP MLA from Trilokpuri Raju Dhingan also levelled similar allegations.

"I got a call some 20 days back asking me to join the BJP in return of money and a ministerial berth," Dhingan said.

AAP's resolution also condemned ‘low level politics’ of BJP and said that it was beyond comprehension why the BJP was shying away from dissolution of assembly and declaring elections.

"We demand that the BJP should immediately stop its low level politics. The Assembly should immediately be dissolved and elections should be declared," resolution also stated.
