While addressing media after the meeting, He accused BJP of trying to lure his party Legislators with Cabinet Berths and Rs 100 crore to each one of them to form the Government. 'BJP is using Black Money to buy MLAs. Central Agencies have been threatening our MLAs. BJP is greedy for power but we won't let them have the last laugh,' he said.
