Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav has said that accusations made by former Delhi Cabinet Minister and suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kapil Mishra against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the party should be probed. Yadav along with eminent lawyer Prashant Bhushan were sacked from AAP in 2015 despite being co-founders by Kejriwal. Today, Yadav targeted both Kejriwal and Mishra in a tweet. Yadav posted that the duo shared a teacher-pupil relationship, he went on to add that the pupil has now overtaken the teacher. The Swaraj Abhiyan leader said that the charges leveled by Mishra were old but serious. He also asked why no action had been taken against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress over foreign funds either.
In a press briefing held earlier today, Mishra had alleged that money was funneled into AAP through shell firms and that the party had done large-scale money laundering too. In his first press conference, Mishra had also demanded the travel details of five AAP leaders – he had hinted that these leaders had gone abroad to launder money. Mishra seeking Arvind Kejriwal’s ouster from the post of the Delhi CM has been staging a hunger strike for the last few days. Mishra said that he would share evidence of financial irregularities in the Aam Aadmi Party with probe agencies. Mishra also told the media that he saw Arvind Kejriwal accept Rs 2 crore from Delhi PWD Minister Satyendar Jain.
