Former Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra on Sunday morning made a shocking revelation about Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyendar Jain. While talking to reporters at Rajghat, Mishra alleged that he saw Arvind Kejriwal taking Rs 2 cr from Jain at the latter’s official residence. He said that Delhi CM didn’t give him any explanation about the money. Thereafter, Mishra also added that Jain told him that he had “settled land deals worth Rs 50 crore for Kejriwal’s relative,” reported PTI. The agency said that the AAP MLA said he was sacked from the cabinet after he confronted Kejriwal over the issue.
Here’s the full statement from Kapil Mishra:
Over the Rs 2 cr issue, Mishra alleged that CM evaded answering where the money came from and said few things in politics cannot be explained. “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.
Mishra said that he is ready to make a statement before CBI. “I am also ready to make a statement before the CBI or Anti-Corruption Bureau if required,” he was quoted as saying by PTI. Earlier, as Mishra went to meet the LG at Raj Niwas, the top leadership of AAP remained huddled at Kejriwal’s residence. Vishwas, who was also present, left a little before Mishra made the allegations to reporters at Raj Ghat.

Despite the rumours, Mishra also cleared one fact and that he won’t be joining the Bharatiya Janata Party. “I am one of the founding members of AAP and will always be in the party, those who are corrupt will be sacked from the party,” Mishra told the reporters before meeting Anil Baijal. “It has nothing to do with the MCD polls, and till now, I have not received any official confirmation so far. But I met Arvind Kejriwal this morning, and I said that it has been a year since the report on the tanker scam was tabled and no action has been taken,” Mishra told ANI while mentioning that he would submit the names of those people involved in the tanker scam to the Anti-Corruption Bureau.
