‘Arvind Kejriwal Said Such Things Happen’: Sacked Minister On ‘Cash Deal’

Delhi’s sacked water minister Kapil Mishra triggered a political crisis for the ruling Aam Aadmi Party today, levelling direct charges of corruption at Arvind Kejriwal. He alleged that he had seen the Chief Minister taking Rs. 2 crore in cash from health minister Satyendar Jain. Mr Jain, he further said, had told him that he had "settled land deals worth Rs. 50 crore" on behalf of a relative of Mr Kejriwal.

What is the Delhi ‘water tanker scam’?

The Delhi water tanker scam has again come to the fore after Kapil Mishra was sacked as water minister and removed from the post of Delhi Jal Board chief. According to Mishra, he was sacked as he had asked Kejriwal to take action against those involved in the scam. Mishra also alleged that he was ‘probably’ sacked because of the AAP leaders’ names he had mentioned in his report on the water tanker scam. On Sunday, he met Lt Governor Anil Baijal and briefed him about the scam.

Kapil Mishra says he saw Satyendar Jain give Arvind Kejriwal Rs 2 crore, Sisodia calls it absurd

Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra claimed he saw former fellow cabinet colleague Satyendar Jain giving chief minister Arvind Kejriwal Rs 2 crore and demanded to know what the money was for.

Mishra heightened suspense on Sunday morning ahead of a press conference art Rajghat, saying he had seen “him” take illegal cash, without identifying the person.

Mishra, who was removed from his post on Saturday, has claimed that a conspiracy is being hatched against him due to the alleged Rs 400-crore water tanker scandal.
