BJP demands probe into Kapil Mishra's 'serious' allegations

Seemapuri MLA Rajendra Pal Gautam, one of the two inductees in Delhi's chief minister Arvind Kejriwal council of ministers, will be the Aam Aadmi Party's Dalit face in the government.

"Day before yesterday (Friday) I saw Jain handing over Rs 2 crore in cash to Kejriwal at his residence". He said, "I was not informed of the decision as per my knowledge, it was taken unilaterally by Kejriwal".

In a communication, the Union Home Ministry asked the Arvind Kejriwal-led party to explain certain fundings from overseas after suspecting that it might have violated FCRA provisions.

His removal came only after he met Kejriwal and raised the issue of him approaching the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in the water tanker scam.

Earlier on Saturday, shortly after being removed from the Delhi Cabinet, Mishra said he may have been axed for saying he would submit the names of those people involved in the tanker scam to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).

Water Tanker scam came into limelight when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in June 2015, formed a five-member fact-finding committee to probe the irregularities in hiring 385 stainless steel water tankers under the Sheila Dixit regime. He added: "I was sacked from the party after speaking out against corruption".

"I am the only minister with no corruption charges".

And the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier is also headed toward the peninsula for a joint exercise with South Korea. She says the USA wants "to test that hypothesis to the maximum extent we can" for a peaceful resolution.

"Kapil Mishra submitting proof to the Lieutenant Governor is enough to show the true character of the AAP frontrunners". Vishwas, who was also present, left a Little before Mishra made the allegations to reporters at Raj Ghat.

He had said he would expose the names involved in the tanker scam on Sunday. "I will say that with which ever agency they want to appoint to investigate the matter they can, I know they will able to find nothing", he added.

His sacking also highlighted the simmering tension between the leadership and Vishwas, which could snowball into a major crisis for the poll-battered AAP. "Total two have been included in the Cabinet now, Kailash Gahlot and Rajendra Gautam for a post which was vacant".

On Sunday, AAP's Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan had accused Vishwas of being a "BJP-RSS agent" and planning a coup in the party.

With Mishra's removal from Delhi's cabinet and Vishwas' mood, it is expected that the AAP's internal fight is going to be intensify.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said Mishra was replaced because there were complaints about inflated water bills of consumers and water was not reaching colonies where new lines had been laid. The charges made by Mishra are very serious and can not be dismissed.

A government source said Kailash Gahlot would replace Mishra.
