In the video shown on a television, the minister's aide was heard saying that 'the AAP has spent crores of rupees on the (2014 Delhi Assembly) election' and that it needs money.
The Congress party on Monday released a video of what it termed as a sting operation that purportedly shows a man claiming to be an associate of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain asking for a bribe of Rs 25 lakh, reports said.
The audio of the sting video was released by Congress leader Ajay Maken, who demanded a probe into the incident.
In the video shown on a television, the associate was heard saying that “the AAP has spent crores of rupees on the (2014 Delhi Assembly) election” and that it needs money.
Minister Imran Hussain has refuted the allegations, but the Congress says not just him, his brother too was involved in the alleged bribery demand.
"If (Congress leader) Maken can prove any of my staff or family member is involved in the sting, I will leave politics," Hussain was quoted as saying.
In October, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sacked minister Asim Ahmed Khan after audio tapes emerged of him purportedly asking for Rs 6 lakh as bribe from a builder.
