Reacting to a number of Delhi Congress leaders including its former president Arvinder Singh Lovely switching over to the BJP, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday alleged that even the present Congress chief Ajay Maken was in talks with BJP President Amit Shah for switching over to the saffron party.

Kejriwal further said that Maken was only waiting for the polls to get over so that he could cut into AAP votes. 

“Congress is over in Delhi. Voting for the Congress means wasting your vote. I have learnt that even Ajay Maken is in talks with (BJP President) Amit Shah. He is only waiting for the polls to get over so that he can cut the AAP votes,” Kejriwal said, while releasing the party manifesto for the MCD polls. 

Hitting back at Kejriwal, Maken said that the Delhi Chief Minister should stop worrying about him.  


“He should instead look at the irregularities found by the Shunglu panel against him and his government. He should be prepared to go to jail for this. We are meeting the Delhi Police Commissioner tomorrow in this regard. If the police fails to take any action then we will approach the court,” Maken said in a statement.
