Reacting to the arrests, AAM Aadmi Party’s leader Arvind Kejriwal alleged BJP was framing fellow volunteers after party “failed” in its bid to form a government.
Just as we are preparing plans for BJP to form government in Delhi buying MLAs, our volunteers and staff have been framed in false cases and arrested. It seems that seniors will have to lower the police to arrest the leaders of the AAM Aadmi party’s: So, who is masterminding it. Kejriwal tweeted.
A senior police officer, requesting anonymity, said Pandey was grilled by the Jamia Nagar police station after AAM Aadmi party’s activists put up posters against Congress MLAs and some of the arrested workers were exposed NMC name Pandey.
Interestingly, Amanatullah who has confessed that he put up posters, is not being arrested. Police is arresting only AAP people.
