He claimed that the AAP MLAs were approached by leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) with whom they have "friendly relations".

"They have been offered Rs 20 crore each if they join the party and Rs 25 crore if they bring other MLAs along with them," Singh said, PTI reported.

"They (BJP leaders) told our MLAs that if they do not accept the offer and join the BJP, they will also have to face false cases, the CBI and the ED like (Delhi Deputy Chief Minister) Manish Sisodia is facing," he added.

The AAP MP accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of trying to bring AAP legislators into the BJP-fold "by hook or crook" and making efforts to bring down the Arvind Kejriwal-led government in Delhi.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also claimed that some AAP MLAs have told him that they are being threatened to quit the party, terming it a “serious matter”.

"In the last two to three days, some AAP MLAs have told me that they are being given the threat of CBI and ED, they are being lured with money to leave AAP, this is a very serious issue. We have called a meeting of our political affairs at 4 pm to discuss this," he said.
