New Delhi: In a major dramatic development, sacked Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra accusing none other but Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal of indulging in a corruption.
Speaking to reporters at Rajghat today morning, Mishra claimed that Kejriwal accepted Rs 2 crore in cash from Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Kumar Jain at his official residence here.
Mishra said the cash was handed over to Kejriwal by AAP leader Satyendra Jain.
“I have informed about this to L-T Governor Anil Baijal and will also inform all investigation agencies,” Mishra told the media here.
“I have given the proof of Kejriwal-Jain corruption to Delhi L-G and will give it to CBI and anti-corruption wing as well. The land deal was of Rs 50 crore for a relative of Arvind Kejriwal. Satyender got the land deal done. I’ve seen Arvind Kejriwal accepting Rs 2 crore cash from Satyender Jain,” Mishra told mediapersons.
“I’ve prepared report against Sheila Dikshit within a month after I was made a minister. What happened to that report after that everyone knows. I will start eradicating corruption and won’t stop until I succeed,” Mishra said today.
AAP leader and Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia rejected all the allegations leveled by Kapil Mishra.
After Mishra’s claims, both Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress asked Kejriwal to step down as Delhi chief minister on moral grounds and sought an investigation against the Delhi Chief Minister.
Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party rubbished Mishra’s claims, calling the allegations baseless and undeserving of a response.
The allegations came just a day after Kapil Mishra was shunted out of the Arvind Kejriwal Cabinet.
