Our operation to expose BJP’s horse-trading has been going on for one month, BJP does not have the numbers to form the Delhi government, which is why they are indulging in malpractices. We will not let them form the Delhi government through dishonesty.” And in order to further validate its point, the party has let its fury against the ruling party on Twitter.

The video in the above tweet shows Delhi BJP leader Sher Singh Dagar talking to AAP leader Dinesh Manohiya, and trying to convince AAP leaders of the security and benefits they will get if they resign from AAP and join BJP. Other BJP leaders Raghubir Dahiya and AAP member Vivek Yadav were also allegedly present, although they could not be seen in the footage. Following this #BJPExposed hashtag has been trending on Twitter.
BJP is probably gonna sacrifice Dagar in this #BJPExposed scandal. Keep the Dagger ready for slaughter 😉

While it has become clear that social media is become politicians favourite tool to get their word out in public, the campaign is still getting mixed responses. While those who are in support the ruling party have shunned the hashtag created by AAP and are voicing together calling this a publicity stunt with #NautankiAAP
