He also claimed that Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was in touch with the Congress MLAs to lure them to float a new party and support AAP from outside.
    
"We are ready to form the government, but Congress is not ready to support us. Manish (Sisodia) is in touch with the Congress. Do one thing, split the Congress and ask their six MLAs to float a new party and support us," Kejriwal was purportedly heard saying in a telephonic conversation with Garg.
    
Garg also alleged that Kejriwal wanted to avoid facing the elections.
    
"Congress won't support us. We have been trying for the last one and a half month. These six Congress MLAs would have supported BJP, but three of them are Muslims. They won't support the BJP. Those six MLAs should support us," Kejriwal purportedly told Garg in the audio clip.
    
After the controversy broke over the clip, Garg feigned ignorance on how the clip became public saying he had e-mailed it to party leader Kumar Vishwas.
    
"I had recorded the conversation. I have been in the anti- corruption movement and I keep on recording conversations. I was strictly against poaching MLAs and I stopped going to the party office after the episode," he said.
