AAP suspends Kapil Mishra from primary membership after graft allegations against Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi: Hours after Kapil Mishra yet again accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of corruption, political affairs committee of Aam Aadmi Party​(AAP) suspended the former minister from party’s primary membership. 

The PAC was chaired by Kejriwal.

The decision comes a day after Mishra levelled allegations that Kejriwal had taken Rs 2 crore in cash from Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain.

Mishra was removed from the post of water minister on May 6.

Earlier today Mishra had dared the party to sack him even as he had fired a fresh salvo at Kejriwal, alleging that a Rs 50 crore deal was made for AAP chief’s brother-in-law.

“Jain told me that he has arranged a 7-acre land deal in Chattarpur for Kejriwal’s brother-in-law’s Bansal family. Being a PWD minister, he also fudged bills up to Rs 10 crore in the department to benefit Kejriwal’s relative,” he had said.

Mishra had also alleged that during the Punjab polls, there was massive corruption done by AAP in ticket distribution, including supplying of liquor by party members.

He had further claimed that AAP leader Sanjay Singh was involved in lobbying for overseas funding of the party.

Slamming Delhi CM, Mishra had said that Kejriwal does not want to resign.

“Kejriwal’s weakness is his chair. He does not want to leave his chair. I want to ask Kejriwal if he will resign the day when Jain is sent to jail in a corruption case,” he had said.

Rejecting the AAP’s allegation that he has been in touch with BJP leaders, Mishra also dared the party to prove the same, adding that whoever raises voice against AAP leaders, he or she is called ‘a BJP agent’.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Mishra had said that he had shared with the ACB all the evidence related to the tanker scam that dates back to Congress leader Sheila Dikshit’s tenure as CM.

The Rs 400 crore tanker scam relates to alleged irregularities in the hiring of private tankers to supply water.
