This is the third day running that Mishra has made new allegations against AAP ministers. To back up his claims, Mishra said that he has evidence to prove them too. He has alleged that some AAP ministers were part of the water tanker scam in 2012 in which several crores were allegedly involved. Kejriwal in response to these allegations told media via Twitter that in the special assembly session today, Saurabh Bharadwaj will disclose the truth about a big conspiracy going on in the country.

Early in the morning, Mishra headed to the CBI office and asked for Kejriwal’s ‘blessings’ before that, “Bless me… I am filing an FIR against you,” Mishra said, addressing the media. He also read out a letter he wrote to the AAP convener. He alleged that Kejriwal is trying to remove him as an MLA. He said, “You are trying to remove me from assembly, I challenge you to contest the elections against me,” he said. According to him he has seen Kejriwal taking Rs 2 crore in cash from Satyendar Jain at his residence, and demanded to know the reason behind it. AAP has cited Mishra’s poor performance before to remove him as the Cabinet Minster before this political storm was kicked off on Sunday. On Monday, Mishra was suspended from AAP’s Political Affairs Committee.
