New Delhi — Former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg today claimed that he has received two threat calls since he accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of trying to poach six Congress MLAs to form government last year.

Garg said the person who called him today used an unknown number, and asked him "whether he wanted to stay alive."

"I got a threat call today from an unknown number, following which I approached the Prashant Vihar Police station. They have taken the CD of the audio and put my phone on surveillance," Garg said.

He had claimed to have received a threat call yesterday as well from an international number.

The former Rohini MLA, who shares an uneasy relationship with the party leadership, had recorded a conversation between him and Kejriwal in which the Delhi chief minister is purportedly heard asking Garg to break six Congress MLAs and form another party which could support the AAP.

Lashing out at Garg, the party had said that recording was passed on by a "disgruntled element" who was denied a party ticket.
