NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs led by  Arvind Kejriwal met President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday and requested him to dissolve the Delhi Assembly and immediately call for fresh elections. The AAP party workers said that the president has assured them that he will look into the matter. In a memorandum submitted to Mukherjee, the party said that the BJP has approached 15 party MLAs, with offers of ministerial berths, properties and cash ranging from `10 crore to `20 crore. “When this did not work, the BJP has now resorted to giving life threats to our MLAs.

One of our MLA from Shalimar Bagh, Bandana Kumari was given a life threat and she has already filed a police complaint in this regard,” the memorandum said. Calling it as an assault on the Indian democracy, the AAP party members said that they look forward to the president as their last hope.

Kejriwal had resigned as Delhi CM in February and the assembly has been put in suspended animation.
