Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party workers were today exhorted by their chief Vijay Goel to "go all out to expose" Arvind Kejriwal's AAP as the main Opposition raised allegations of corruption against two of the ruling party's ministers and sought their resignations.

Addressing a state executive committee meet, Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel said that AAP and Congress were two sides of the same coin and averred that Congress should withdraw its support to the Arvind Kejriwal government if it was indeed opposed to his style of functioning.

Bharatiya Janata Party also alleged that Law Minister Somnath Bharti and Education Minister Manish Sisodia were "corrupt" and demanded their resignations.

"Party workers should go all out to expose (AAP) and work at the grassroots level to ensure that Bharatiya Janata Party wins all seven Lok Sabha seats (in Delhi).

"AAP's Jan Lokpal Bill is a political stunt... It (AAP) should dismiss its corrupt ministers," Goel said.

He added that the attempts by Congress to obstruct Narendra Modi's victory march would not succeed.

At the meeting, Bharatiya Janata Party also passed a political resolution against AAP over a variety of issues.
