Kapil Mishra, in a dramatic press conference held earlier today, claimed that Aam Aadmi Party hid money from the Income-Tax department. Mishra also added that money was funneled into the party through shell firms, these firms turned black money into white money. Mishra also said that he will provide evidence against alleged financial irregularities carried out by Kejriwal and other members of the party.
Kapil Mishra who has been on a hunger strike for a few days collapsed soon after the press conference in which he accused the Delhi CM Kejriwal of financial wrongdoing. Mishra has been admitted to Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital. Doctors at the hospital say that Mishra is stable and mildly dehydrated. Last night doctors advised Mishra to get himself hospitalised.
