Kapil vs Kejriwal fight continues, claims made in an NDTV interview termed lies

Recently rebel AAP leader Kapil Mishra seems to have become the biggest threat for Kejriwal and his associates due to his continual allegations against the person and the party. The issue had begun on 7th May when Mishra, after he was removed as the Cabinet Minister, alleged that he had seen Kejriwal taking Rs 2 crore in cash from the Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain.

Mishra then raised question about the suspicious nature of the transaction and had claimed that the party was receiving money via various shell companies, which raised speculations of it being hawala money. This was related to AAP receiving donations to the tune of 2 crore rupees rather mysteriously – a controversy that has erupted in 2015 itself.

Yesterday, NDTV had aired an exclusive interview with a man called Mukesh Sharma, a Delhi based trader, who claimed that it was him who had donated those 2 crore rupees.

He further claimed that he had donated the money transparently to AAP via his four companies named Skyline Metal, Goldmine Buildcon, Infolance Software and Sun Vision. He had reportedly donated 50 lakh each from these 4 companies using a demand draft on 31st March 2014.

This snippet of the interview was re-tweeted by Kejriwal himself.

Here Sharma denied all the allegations of him donating via shell companies. He further claimed that he donated genuine money to AAP. The reporter then pointed out that when people had visited the addresses of his 4 companies they had found no existence of the same.

To that question, Sharma gave an extremely odd answer by claiming that he himself had asked the people present at the addresses to say that no such companies were present there, as he feared some action might be taken against them due to it being a political matter.

Incidentally the reporter didn’t immediately grill him for his odd claims as no legitimate company’s presence can so easily be denied. Sharma also claimed that he hadn’t met any top AAP leader except Pankaj Gupta who is the National Secretary of the party.

When finally asked about the reason why he chose to donate such a large amount, Sharma claimed that he did so because he wanted to help an ‘honest’ leader who would work for the nation.

After this NDTV video interview was shared widely, including by Kejriwal himself, Kapil Mishra claimed that the identity of the man has revealed more than what he wanted to. Today in a press conference, Mishra gave further details of Mukesh Sharma and his companies:

Mishra proceeded to show the letterheads of Mukesh Sharma’s companies via which he had donated the money. He further claimed that the letter-head of the company, which had supposedly donated Rs 50 lakh, was fake and created at home on a computer. He directed people’s attention to the letters of Sun Vision and Skyline Metal both of which incidentally didn’t have the signature of Mukesh Sharma. If the money indeed was sanctioned by him then why was his signature not present on the letter heads?

He then pulled out the director records of the 4 companies in question. According to the records, Mukesh Sharma had become the Additional Director of Skyline Metals only on 22nd April of this year while the donations were given in 2014. Hence Mukesh Sharma couldn’t have authorized the donations in the 1st place. He further claimed that Mukesh Sharma had quit Sun Vision on 2nd Nov 2012 hence him authorizing that donation too seemed false.

He also claimed that Mukesh Sharma was only being made a scapegoat so as to shield a person whose hawala network was directly connected to Kejriwal. He then took potshots at those media houses which aired Sharma’s interview and asked as to why they didn’t verify such basic information as company records, balance sheets which could have easily told the truth. He claimed that such false news only dented the credibility of media houses and made no difference to Kejriwal.

Mishra finally claimed that initially even he was not aware of all the facts regarding these companies and only started to check after Kejriwal retweeted the video of the interview.

It remains to be seen if Kejriwal responds to such serious questions or again tries to deflect attention by carrying out EVM Expose 2.0
