A day after being dropped as a minister, AAP MLA Kapil Mishra on Sunday levelled stunning allegations of corruption against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
Mishra told reporters at Raj Ghat that he “saw” Jain handing over “Rs 2 crore” to Kejriwal at his official residence.
On being asked, the CM evaded answering where the money came from and said few things in politics cannot be explained, the sacked MLA alleged.
“I kept quiet all this while due to complete faith on Arvind Kejriwal. Day before yesterday, I saw Jain giving Rs 2 crore in cash to Kejriwal. Kejriwal said few things happen in politics. After having seen Jain hand over such a big amount to him, I had to come out. I have handed over the details to Lt Governor Anil Baijal,” Mishra said.
“I am also ready to make a statement before the CBI or Anti Corruption Bureau if required,” he added.
There was no immediate reaction from the Aam Aadmi Party or the government on the allegations. The BJP demanded the resignation of Kejriwal saying Mishra has “punctured the balloon of his probity”.
Mishra further alleged that Jain told him that he “settled land deals worth Rs 50 crore for Kejriwal’s relative”. The AAP MLA said he was sacked after he confronted Kejriwal over the issue.
