Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas said Saturday that a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA had offered him the Delhi chief minister’s post after the April-May general elections this year.

“A BJP MLA who is also an old friend had come to my house after elections. I thought he had come to either congratulate or sympathise as I had lost the (general) election. But he told me that his party wanted me to accept the post of chief minister. He also told me he was meeting me at the behest of the BJP leadership,” Mr. Vishwas told a news channel.

AAP leader Mr. Vishwas is not a Delhi MLA but had fought Lok Sabha elections from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and lost.

Mr. Vishwas said he refused to accept the offer and immediately informed his party colleague. However, he said he would not divulge the BJP legislator’s name.

Delhi has been under President’s rule since AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal resigned as chief minister in February after spending just 49 days in power.
