In a massive claim, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday said that he had got a message from the BJP with the condition to “break AAP" and switch over to get close all cases against him closed.
Asserting that all the allegations against him were false, Sisodia said he will never bow down before “conspirators and corrupt people".
Sisodia is among 15 people and entities named in an FIR registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with alleged irregularities in the implementation of the Delhi excise policy.
“I have received a message from the BJP — Break AAP and join BJP. We will ensure that all cases by CBI and ED against you are closed. “My reply to BJP — I am a descendant of Maharana Pratap and a Rajput. I am ready to get beheaded but can never bow down before conspirators and corrupt people. All the cases against me are false. Do whatever you want to do," he said in a tweet in Hindi.
मेरे पास भाजपा का संदेश आया है- “आप” तोड़कर भाजपा में आ जाओ, सारे CBI ED के केस बंद करवा देंगेमेरा भाजपा को जवाब- मैं महाराणा प्रताप का वंशज हूँ, राजपूत हूँ। सर कटा लूँगा लेकिन भ्रष्टाचारियो-षड्यंत्रकारियोंके सामने झुकूँगा नहीं। मेरे ख़िलाफ़ सारे केस झूठे हैं।जो करना है कर लो
