The political standoff between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) does not seem to stop. Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia on Friday addressed a press conference and accused the BJP of 'hatching a conspiracy to assassinate Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, fearing poll defeats in Gujarat and the MCD. Not only this, but Delhi Deputy CM also demanded a probe saying a complaint would also be submitted to the Election Commission. Addressing a press conference here, Sisodia alleged that the kind of language used by BJP leader Manoj Tiwari on Thursday against Kejriwal is an "open threat".

"Manoj Tiwari has threatened Kejriwal, which makes it clear that BJP is conspiring to murder (Delhi CM) Arvind Kejriwal... will submit a complaint in the election commission, also file an FIR," said Manish Sisodia in the press conference. After Sisodia's claims, Manoj Tiwari expressed his concerns over Arvind Kejriwal's security and was quoted by a newswire saying, "I am concerned about Kejriwal's safety. Sisodia is reading an old script of the BJP conspiring to kill Kejriwal. Kejriwal claims Sisodia will be arrested while Sisodia prophecies Kejriwal's murder. I don't know what is going on."

For the unversed, Sisodia's remarks came in response to Tiwari's tweets earlier in the day, in which he had expressed concern over Kejriwal's security while highlighting recent allegations of corruption and "selling of tickets" for the MCD polls.
