Speaking to India Today Aam Aadmi Party leader Saurabh Bhardwaj accused Mishra of working for the BJP, he said Mishra was taken out of the assembly by assembly marshalls and was not dragged out by party MLAs. Bhardwaj added that the sacked AAP minister Mishra may have attacked Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Sisodia had he not been restrained. AAP claims that Mishra wasn’t beaten up.

Mishra told media that he was trying to throw light on an alleged ‘medicine scam’. Earlier on Tuesday, the sacked Delhi minister sought Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s “direct intervention” in the city’s health department over an alleged scam in purchase of medicines. The rebel AAP MLA has been alleging irregularities in purchase of medicines and in payment to suppliers, according to a PTI report.

However, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi Government has rejected his charges as “baseless”, saying all its hospitals have at least “80 percent availability” of medicines. “It is saddening that the chief minister is putting pressure on the chief secretary while keeping quiet on the role of the health secretary or the health minister over the issue. I think the CM’s order, going out of the way, should also be considered an act of corruption,” Mishra wrote to the LG, as per PTI reports.
