Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley Monday rubbished claims by an AAP lawmaker that the BJP was trying to buy him off and topple the AAP government.

In a tweet, the leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha said: "Rubbish claims by AAP. AAP's alternative politics includes a fundamental right to falsehood and lies."

Madan Lal, Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Kasturba Nagar, alleged that he had been approached by BJP leaders, including BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, in an attempt to buy him off for Rs 20 crore.

Lal, addressing a press conference, said that on December 7 he received a call from an "unknown number" and the person on the other end said he would make him talk to a "big person" and mentioned Arun Jaitley's name.

"I told him to shut up and put down the phone," said Lal.

However, Lal said he has no proof to back his allegations.


Meanwhile, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath has asked AAP to initiate a probe into the allegations.
