Kapil Mishra alleges Kejriwal of taking Rs 2 crore from Satyendra Jain

Former water resources minister and AAP leader Kapil Mishra on Sunday alleged he saw Health Minister Satyendra Jain give Rs 2 crore to party chief Arvind Kejriwal. “Parson maine Satyendra Jain ji ko Rs 2 crore Arvind Kejriwal ji ko dete huye dekha tha. Main poori raat so nahi paaya (Day before yesterday, I saw Satyendra Jain give Rs 2 crore to Arvind Kejriwal. I could not sleep for the entire night),” he said. The CBI had earlier registered preliminary inquiry against Jain to investigate the charges of money laundering against him.

Mishra alleged that Jain had told him that he settled land deals worth Rs 50 crore for Kejriwal’s relative. “Arvind Kejriwal told me such things happen in politics,” Mishra said at his press conference. Reacting to his allegations, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said they were so absurd that they did not merit any response. “The allegations made against the party do not merit a response. Nobody will believe it.”
Raising questions over the funds received by the AAP ahead of the Punjab polls, Mishra said, “I trusted Kejriwal, whom I thought to be clean. There were several funding related issues in Punjab. I though Kejriwal would act on it. I had this trust in him since two years.”
Mishra also questioned the timing of his sacking. “I could have been sacked before too. I was being praised initially by every AAP leader. There were no talks of me being sacked. Now the timing of the sacking raises questions,” he said.
