Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday alleged that the BJP is trying to woo newly elected AAP councilors and insisted that none of them would fall prey to their “game”.
He said newly elected councilors had been instructed to record “such phone calls” in case they received them.

The BJP, predicted to be a flop in the polls, fought hard, winning the city’s 104 wards.
“The BJP game has started. Our newly elected councilors have started receiving phone calls. None of our councilors will be sold. We’ve told everyone. all of their councilors that if they get a phone call or if someone comes to see them, they should record those calls and the meetings,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.
