Sacked Delhi minister alleges Kejriwal took money

Posted May 07, 2017

The day before yesterday I saw Satyendar Jain handing out Rs 2 crore cash to Arvind Kejriwal.

"I will neither quit the party nor can anyone send me out", Mishra told the media here.

In a communication, the Union Home Ministry asked the Arvind Kejriwal-led party to explain certain fundings from overseas after suspecting that it might have violated FCRA provisions.

I urged him to seek an apology.

Mishra was axed from the Cabinet on Saturday, days after he sided with senior AAP leader Kumar Vishwas who has been at loggerheads with the party leadership.

"Can any party's state unit chief work without a working committee", he asked, adding, "Rather than zonal level, district and block-level units of the AAP can be formed for the betterment of the party". Within one month of becoming minister, I made a report against Sheila Dikshit.

Jain, who holds the Health portfolio, was accused of nepotism by opposition in the appointments of his daughter Soumya Jain and Nikunj Agarwal, a relative of Kejriwal's wife, to government posts.

Mishra's allegations prompted calls for Kejriwal government's resignation from opposition parties BJP and Congress. Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said these are serious charges and time is right to start an investigation against Kejriwal. Raising questions over the timing of his outster, Mishra claimed that he was sacked after he spoke out against the corruption within the AAP party.

Amid the escalating infighting within the AAP, ousted Delhi minister Kapil Mishra has "exposed" AAP by revealing that Kejriwal took Rs 2 crore cash bribe from Satyender Jain. BJP leader R K Singh demanded the ouster of AAP government. "I mean, what can I say (about this allegation)?"

Soon after the move, Mishra had claimed he would "expose" the involvement of certain AAP leaders in an alleged scam on Sunday.

Kejriwal has also brought a new face in his cabinet in the form of Rajendra Gautam.

Recently, a rift developed within the party after Amanatulla Khan had alleged that Vishwas was planning a coup against Kejirwal. Reacting to his allegations, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said they were so absurd that they did not merit any response. The charges made by Mishra are very serious and can not be dismissed.

He added that two persons have been included in the Cabinet now- Kailash Gahlot and Rajendra Gautam for a post which was vacant.
