Sacked AAP Minister Kapil Mishra on Tuesday morning sought the ‘blessings’ of Arvind Kejriwal before leaving to file an FIR against him and to submit evidence to the CBI office.
“Bless me… I am filing an FIR against you,” Mishra said, addressing the media in Delhi and read out a letter he wrote to the AAP convener.
Mishra who claimed that Kejriwal was trying to remove him as an MLA said, “You are trying to terminate me from the assembly, I challenge you to contest in the elections against me.”
He added that he knew each and every ‘trick’ and ‘step’ of Kejriwal.
On Monday, Mishra went to the Anti Crime Branch (ACB) and submitted what he claimed was evidence against Kejriwal in a scam. He added that the ACB has asked him to visit their office once again in a few days. Later in the day, he dared the party to expel him, which the party did, suspending him from the primary membership of the party.
Mishra claims that he was the eye-witness of Kejriwal accepting Rs 2 crore in cash from Satyendra Jain, another minister in the Delhi government, at his Delhi residence.
Late Monday evening, Kejriwal tweeted, breaking his silence on the allegation. “Truth will win. Tomorrow’s special session of the Delhi Assembly is where it begins,”
Delhi Congress Chief Ajay Maken, reacting to the issue, questioned whether anyone is allowed to dissent against Kejriwal in the Aam Aadmi Party.
“Where is the internal democracy in the AAP? The basic premises have been compromised with. It is worse than other political parties and is functioning under the dictatorship of Arvind Kejriwal,” Maken said.
