Senior AAP leader accuses Arvind Kejriwal of taking ₹ 2 crore ‘bribe’

Rather than having a quiet morning, Arvind Kejriwal and his supporters were in for a shock on Sunday when their party leader and erstwhile cabinet minister Kapil Mishra in a press conference shockingly alleged that he had personally seen Kejriwal receiving Rs 2 crores in cash from Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain at the former’s official residence.

This incident of Kejriwal accepting cash is supposed to have happened day before yesterday. Kapil Mishra claims that he asked Kejriwal about the cash, but the AAP supremo told him that it was part of politics and he will explain things later. Mishra didn’t find this a satisfactory answer and decided to take the matters further.

He claims that he met Kejriwal again and told him that he will report it to the LG Anil Baijal and also to the Anti-Corruption bureau. He claims that he was removed as a cabinet minister after he disclosed his intentions of exposing corruption within the party.

AAP maintains that Kapil Mishra was removed from the cabinet because he was not performing well. But Mishra says that this is an excuse to hid corruption. He asked that if he indeed was under-performing and people were unhappy with his department (water), why was the party and senior leaders claiming water distribution as one of the chief achievements of the Kejriwal government.

Although it is not yet clear why 2 crore rupees were given to Kejriwal by Jain, Mishra made accusation that Jain had allegedly told him that he had settled land deals worth 50 crores for Kejriwal’s relatives.

After making the allegations, Kapil announced that he will provide details and make a statement in front of the CBI and the Anti-corruption bureau tomorrow.

Even though Kejriwal had so far remained free of any such accusations, the same can’t be said of Satyender Jain. In the past we had reported how he has allegedly been involved in buying about 200 acres of land in and around Delhi via Hawala money.

Mishra has said that he is confident that Jain will go to jail. He said the same to another senior leader Kumar Vishwas, who is supposed to be close to Mishra:

Mishra’s allegations are not the only thing that the party has to fight at this moment, there is another matter of the Union Home Ministry seeking information about the party’s foreign funding.
