‘Mr. Modi, would you topple the government in the state of every opposition party by buying MLA? Is this the definition of your democracy? And where does it bring so much money to the MLA buy? You guys have tried to buy our MLA many times in advance. Buying the AAP MLAs is not easy’, said AAP Chief Arvind Kejriwal on Friday in a tweet.
मोदी जी, आप हर विपक्षी पार्टी के राज्य में MLA ख़रीद कर सरकारें गिराओगे? क्या यही आपकी जनतंत्र की परिभाषा है? और इतने MLA ख़रीदने के लिए इतना पैसा कहाँ से लाते हो?
आप लोग पहले भी कई बार हमारे MLA ख़रीदने की कोशिश कर चुके हो। AAP वालों को ख़रीदना आसान नहीं https://t.co/nEStYE3ipP
