AAP, BJP to meet President Murmu over ‘Operation Lotus’ allegations

Taking to Twitter, AAP MLA Atishi shared that the President has agreed to meet a delegation of Aam Aadmi Party MLAs on September 7, 2022, a request for which was put earlier in the day. 

 

Two days after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) accepted its complaint against the BJP’s alleged attempts to topple governments in various states, the Aam Aadmi Party has sought time from President Droupadi Murmu to apprise her about BJP's 'Operation Lotus'.

Taking to Twitter, AAP MLA Atishi shared that the President has agreed to meet a delegation of the party's MLAs on September 7, 2022, a request for which was put earlier in the day.

On the other hand, Bharatiya Janata Party leaders have also sought President’s time in the matter. A delegation of saffron party leaders will be meeting President Droupadi Murmu on September 6, 2022 to demand the dismissal of the AAP government over a host of issues, including allegations of corruption against its ministers.

On Wednesday, a 10-member delegation of the AAP MLAs including Atishi went to meet CBI Director Subodh Kumar Jaiswal to demand a probe into BJP's alleged attempts to topple other parties' governments in the state even though his office had not given any response to their request for the meeting.

As they were not allowed to enter the CBI headquarters, the AAP legislators sat on a dharna outside in protest.

Amid the agitation, some CBI officials took AAP's chief whip in Delhi Assembly Dilip K Pandey and Kalkaji MLA Atishi inside the agency premises to lodge their complaint

The AAP leaders claimed that the BJP has bought a total of 277 MLAs of other parties to topple their governments so far under 'Operation Lotus' and spent "an estimated Rs 6,300 crore" for it while demanding a CBI probe into it.

The political temperature in the national capital has been soaring after AAP alleged poaching of MLAs by BJP while the saffron party brushed off the charges and blamed the Arvind Kejriwal-led party for playing dirty politics.
