Chandigarh, September 21: Punjab BJP chief Ashwani Sharma on Wednesday slammed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the state and accused the ruling party of doing "dirty politics."

Refuting AAP's allegation that BJP is trying to buy Punjab MLAs, Ashwani Sharma said that AAP is doing "drama". "Harpal Cheema accused BJP of buying their MLAs and offering Rs 1,375 crore. If their allegations are true, where is this money?" he inquired.

"They have filed a fake case. There is no call recording, no phone number or other call details," he added.
