The AAP-BJP bitter spat on Thursday saw the Aam Aadmi Party accusing the saffron party of trying to “buy votes” ahead of February 7  Assembly polls by distributing money and free liquor.

“We have information that BJP is distributing money, liquor and non-vegetarian food to the public and they are also seizing voter identity cards of poor,” AAP leader Ashutosh alleged.

“We also have information that they are trying to traumatise and threaten these voters that if they vote for AAP, they will have to bear the consequences later,” he told reporters.

Responding to the allegations, BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha said, “They (AAP) have even sold their party tickets in these elections and their candidates were found collecting and storing liquor for distribution in elections.”

“They make all kinds of allegations against every party and institution including the Election Commission but they think they are not required to answer any questions.

“It is the same party which is in the dock for its hawala transactions, for conversion of black money into white and they seem to be completely oblivious to these glaring omissions and commissions on their part,” he alleged.
