Reacting to the ongoing rift within the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today hinted that ‘truth’ has come out after former Delhi cabinet minister Kapil Mishra’s allegations against chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Rahul said, “The thing I like about the truth is, it has a habit of coming out.”
His reaction came after Mishra levelled various charges against Kejriwal and other AAP leaders. Apart from accusing the Delhi CM of taking 2 cr from Satyendar Jain, Mishra today launched a fresh salvo against Kejriwal alleging that he wanted to get control of a cable network and arranged another deal for AAP supremo’s brother-in-law.
Mishra, during a press conference earlier today, further alleged that during the Punjab Assembly elections, there was massive corruption by AAP during ticket distribution which included supplying of liquor by party members and even money laundering. Mishra has also alleged that several AAP leaders were involved in money laundering acts even during the Delhi Civic polls.
In a DD News video, the sacked AAP leader said “Some people have called me from America to inform that relatives of Sanjay Singh used to do money dealings for tickets in America.” Though Mishra had assured his supporters and other AAP leaders that he will never leave the party, he was suspended from party’s prime membership on Monday evening.
Mishra had also claimed that many AAP workers and supporters are providing him the evidence against corruption within the party. He has assured that their names will not be made public. The sacked AAP leader also said that he will take the issue to CBI and ACB and would not spare the corrupt leaders of the party.
Mishra also slammed the AAP chief and said the he is not the same ‘Arvind Kejriwal whom we had worshiped. Now Kejriwal cannot leave his CM chair as it has become his weakness’.
