He stated, ” As per our count, 277 MLAs in all have joined the BJP till now. In other words, the BJP has already purchased 277 MLAs.

Moreover, he even blamed the alleged “horse-buying” of the MLAs by the BJP, as the major reason behind the rising inflation. “The money wasted by the BJP to buy the MLAs, has now been taken from the public. This is the reason behind high inflation,” said Mr. Kejriwal. As quoted in a tweet on the official handle of news agency ANI:
“The BJP, through its so-called “Operation Lotus” is trying to topple the governments in different states ruled by the opposition parties. Recently they brought down the MVA government in Maharashtra, now they’re trying to bring down the government of Jharkhand, and eyeing on Delhi as well,” he further added.
Yesterday, CM Arvind Kejriwal called a meeting of all the AAP MLAs at his residence in Delhi, where, reportedly, 7 MLAs were not present. However, the Aam Aadmi Party, citing various reasons for the absence of these 7 MLAs, stated that all its 62MLAs are intact and going nowhere, adding that the BJP’s operation lotus has failed in Delhi.
