In a complaint, submitted to Punjab DGP Gaurav Yadav, the party accused BJP leaders of attempting to buy Punjab AAP MLAs and threatening Jalandhar West MLA Sheetal Angural and others for exposing the alleged poaching agenda.  

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had also released a video regarding this issue. Which he had said that Punjabis are loyal to their soil. BJP is intoxicated by power. If people do not vote, they choose the way of buying MLAs. Targeting the BJP, he said that Sikandar was also stopped by Punjabis. He expressed confidence in his MLAs and said that he would always be loyal to Punjab.

Addressing a press conference at party headquarters on Wednesday, Punjab Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema said that the BJP has murdered democracy by toppling elected government in various states by using centre investigation agencies and buying opposition MLAs.  

Now the Punjab Police has registered an FIR against the BJP in the matter after the complaint of AAP.

“Under Operation Lotus, eight MLAs of Congress have switched to the BJP in Goa today. It is a testament that the BJP is killing democracy and forming their governments in non-BJP-ruled states by breaking up parties with the help of CBI, ED and money,” Cheema added.
