This shocking claim from the AAP leader has come only days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed that 40 Trinamool Congress (TMC) MLAs were in touch with him. While addressing a rally in Serampore in West Bengal, PM Modi had said:

"Didi, when the results will be announced on May 23 and lotus(BJP) will bloom on all four corners of the country, your MLAs will also abandon you and run away. Just watch. Even today, I am in touch with 40 of your MLAs. It is difficult for you to survive now, Didi because of your betrayal."
