AFTER DISSIDENT AAP leader and sacked minister Kapil Mishra met Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Monday to discuss his ongoing crusade to “expose corruption” within the AAP, the party reacted sharply and asked why Baijal’s office had the time to meet a “suspended MLA” but not others. The AAP also questioned where Mishra was procuring documents pertaining to departments that he had never overseen.

AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj, in an indirect attack on the L-G’s office, posed the question on why Mishra was being entertained by Baijal, while also questioning the source of documents procured by him. “These documents that he claims to have pertaining to health ministry or PWD are from departments he has never overseen. So where is he getting them from? He didn’t file an RTI. So it has to either come from AAP government officials or the L-G’s office. Moreover, all officials also report to the L-G,” said Bhardwaj.

He added, “I wanted to meet him in January on behalf of all AAP MLAs but I didn’t get an appointment because he was busy. So why does he have time for Mishra, who asks for an appointment in the morning and gets it by afternoon?” Bhardwaj also said that there should be a “standard operating procedure” to meet the L-G.

        Showing and waving do ents before that section of media which is dead against AK does not prove that the offence has been done by the party. The sacked fellow is in the reaction mode as he lost the post !!!!! AK is honest and his honesty is the greatest weapon !!!!!

          So in a way they think that the charges are serious but they are more worried about how Mishra got all those do ents. Dear AAP leader, if you are not going to prove that the charges are false then no body is buying these useless statement over do ents.

            The AAP guys should know in a democracy any one can approach the authorities and present their grievance what is the big deal here??? If they have not done any thing wrong why should they be afraid??? These guys as usual trying to twist the words and confuse the public to throw a doubt about the very admin which they are working/not working with. From top to bottom blame masters for their failure nothing else. Jaihind

              I am not Pro AAP nor Pro BJP. But whats happening is really sad. If AAP has done wrong then they should be punished. But being inspite of having all enforcement agency directly under BJP ruled government, even if there is a single mistake, AAP members would have been in jail. So that means to say, these are all hoax just to malign and tame AAP members. Modiji has done many good things in last 3 years but every elected party needs a constructive strong opposition or this will be mockery of democracy. Strangle the culprits but not the opposition.

                Meeting LG over very sensitive matter like corruption charge is more important that coming to meet LG to provoke him are different. Any crucial information for corruption charge may be very much important. Kapil Mishra must be rewarded for giving proper evidence against this AAP govt.

                  When is your hero going to drag Kejriwal to Tihar jail? More than 2 weeks are over since the deadline and Kejriwal has not resigned.

                      So source of information is the problem and not the contents AAP's anti corruption crusade is on source of information and not on corruption

                        There are two problems cited by AAP- First how is the LG finding time for Kapil Mishra but not for AAP or it's members for bonafide official work and why does the LG need to meet KM at such short notice? Because of this they are su ious that do ents that will not be given to anybody outside the Government is being leaked and because there are only two possible sources, it could even be the LG's office. Something like Trump's caim that do ents from the White House are being leaked to the media. Validity of the allegations may or maynot be proved, but what else could be the motive of the leaks other than to try and defame and embar AAP

                          Ashutosh had written an article recently in which he wondered where from Mishra is getting these do ents? For example the Voluntary Disclosure on black money by Jain's co. Instead of wasting their time on this, they should answer on the contents in the do ents. He should have answered why they have a senior minister who has shady hawala business.

                            Modi Govt's ED,Income tax Department, CBI could not provide any evidence of Jain's Co black money because there is none...Jain has no business with so called company...Modi Govt is just throwing allegations without iota of evidence like Kapil Mishra.. What Minister should answer when he he has no connectin with that company of so called..hawala business..
