Reacting to a number of Delhi Congress leaders including its former president Arvinder Singh Lovely switching over to the BJP, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday alleged that even the present Congress chief Ajay Maken was in talks with BJP President Amit Shah for switching over to the saffron party.

"In upcoming the elections, the Delhi people will also give their mandate to the BJP and will also make BJP to win in these three corporation elections also", he added. Almost 10 Congress leaders, including Delhi unit vice-president Sukhbeer Sharma, joined the BJP on Wednesday. He became a Cabinet Minister in Diskhit-led Congress Government in 2003 and also held important portfolios of Education, Tourism, PWD, Transport, Revenue and Power.

In a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Sarma had reportedly written that "family-centric politics" and "lack of democracy" in the party forced him to quit.
