BJP Is A Serial Killer That Murders Governments: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today called the BJP a “serial killer of governments” and said he wanted to face a trust vote just to prove that not a single his party MLA had defected.

“I want to bring a confidence motion to show that the BJP has not been able to break away a single MLAs. Their Operation Lotus has become Operation Keechad (mud) in Delhi,” Arvind Kejriwal said, addressing a special session of the Delhi assembly.

AAP called the session to discuss what it alleges is the BJP’s “Operation Lotus” in Delhi to topple the Arvind Kejriwal government and the investigations targeting its leaders like Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who has been charged over allegations of corruption in the Delhi liquor policy.

Sisodia has alleged a BJP offer to drop cases against him if he crosses over.

Yesterday, Mr Kejriwal called a meeting of his 62 MLAs in a show of strength at his home; 53 MLAs showed up and the rest were accounted for, he said.

“The CBI tried everything but not even 25 paise was found at (Mr Sisodia’s) home. The next day a BJP leader approached Manish and said that we’ll make you the Chief Minister and give you 20 crore each to break away from AAP. Manish rejected it and BJP tried to reach out to other MLAs. Each of my MLAs is a diamond – they can’t be bought,” Mr Kejriwal said.

AAP alleges that the BJP is trying to break away 40 of its MLAs and that it has offered Rs 20 crore to each.

“The BJP has dismantled several governments and now they have turned toward Delhi. There is a serial killer of governments in our country. The pattern is the same,” Mr Kejriwal said.

“277 MLAs have been bought by BJP in recent years, ₹ 5,500 crore has been spent by the BJP in operation lotus, ₹ 800 crore has been kept for Delhi,” he charged.

Kejriwal questioned how the BJP had the money to buy MLAs.

“All the money coming from costly oil, fuel, basic necessities is being used for buying MLAs. All this money from GST (Goods and Services Tax) and inflation is being spent for two things – buying MLAs and to write off loans of billionaire friends of the government,” said the AAP chief.
