After Kapil Mishra Sunday made allegations on the AAP’s funding, the Congress and the BJP hit out at the AAP government. While both demanded that Kejriwal step down, the Congress also “wondered” why the BJP wasn’t “prosecuting Kejriwal” and filing a case against him.

Branding Kejriwal as “Mr Corrupt”, the BJP demanded his resignation. BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi rubbished the claim that Mishra was acting at the BJP’s behest. She said, “Mr Corrupt has increased corruption in Delhi by leaps and bounds and this has overshadowed governance. The AAP leadership is being questioned as it is one man’s party indulging in corrupt practice and filling the coffers of his own family and people around him… The Aam Aadmi Party has become Kejriwal Aadmi Party.”

AAP has maintained that Mishra was “parroting” the BJP. Countering this, Lekhi said, “Nobody has to parrot the BJP’s lines. He (Mishra) is somebody at whose behest people like Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav were thrown out of AAP. He was close to Mr Corrupt… People within the AAP are questioning the party leadership.”

Earlier, Congress leaders Anand Sharma and Amarinder Singh had said “divisive forces sitting in foreign countries” were funding the AAP. Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken, while seeking a “thorough probe”, wondered why the BJP-led government at the Centre was not prosecuting Kejriwal and why an FIR under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act has not been lodged.

    In January , Sharad Pawar was awarded the Padma Vibhushan by the modi govt , for being an honest , hard-working and incorruptible politician . The move was welcomed by the NCP , Cong and BJP. Sharad Pawar has never been embroiled in any corruption case ever . kejriwal should learn from Sharad Pawar .

        It is believable that AAP received illegal funding from sh3ll cos , but they remain mere allegations . BUT do you know what is strange ? The Delhi High court found both Cong and BJP guilty in 2014 of accepting ILLEGAL foreign donations in violation of the FCRA ( Foreign Contribution regulation Act) . In 2016 the law was retrospectively amended by Modi Govt and passed with Cong support , to legalize the foreign donations they were found guilty of accepting in 2014 . But mainstream media has been mostly silent . In India , there seems to be 2 sets of laws - one for the common man and another for politicians and their parties. Even after being found guilty in 2014 , no action was taken against either party

          For the same reason , we elected AAP in Delhi and If they also do the same and justify it by saying BJP also does same, we would prefer BJP over AAP. atleast they are doing something for the country, AAP has become a joke.

            Nobody is asking you to excuse any illegality . AAP has NOT been convicted of any illegality with regard to funding . While BJP and Cong were both found guilty by Delhi High Court in 2014 for receiving illegal foreign donations in violation of the FCRA Act . you seem to have conveniently ignored that point made in my comment . What you are claiming is that you will prefer BJP despite the Delhi High verdict . Cong sycophants are also saying the same about their party .

          Completely agree with BJP and Congress. Kejriwal is the most corrupt politician in the history of India. and his party is the most corrupt party . While BJP and Cong are the 2 best and most honest parties. But BJP is more preferable because their honesty and incorruptibility is unparalleled .

            This is as far as they can go and not further. Challenge Kejriwal in the courts, but they will not only because they are afraid of him. It is a case of the pot cal kettle black. The audacity that both parties have to call the another corrupt is not shocking but plain shamelessness.

              If the idea of AAP fails in the politics of india, the great looser will be common people of India. The idea of AAP can be executed heroically by LEADER AK.......onlyAK in the circle of vicious political atmosphere created by bjp and cong. Too much hatred by bjp and cong on AK not good and healthy for democracy.

                Most corrupted parties joint hand together to bring Mr Kejriwal down for their growth. There is no chance for honest people to rule India anymore.

                  Are you referring to those" Honest people " who can hack an EVM in 90 seconds but cannot restore their donation for several months?

                      AAP Arvind Kejriwal is very weak to fight against corruption. He has the intention to fight corruption but very weak to fight it. When he came to power, he was tempted to money when he saw it. When he was surrounded by coteries, he was intoxicated with power. He is just an ordinary people ready to get any chance of doing corruption when opportunities come.

                          All Power is in the hands of Central Government and their puppet LG so who has the power can only commit biggest loot and will not tolerate honest AAP. Kapil Mishra will be soon minister in BJP Government for doing all this drama and Nautanki. He joined AAP with purpose to break AAP but was caught and kicked out so he may fall to any level for boot licking BJP leaders.

                            Your comment is imagination. Kapil Mishra will be aap leadership when Arvind kejriwal is dethroned. Every charge given by kapil Mishra has actionable evidence against Arvind kejriwal and S jain. So, ACB and CBI will take action against the misdeed. How, your misdeed by excuse on the ground of party?

                            Mr Corrupt has the meaning of Mr Honest in aaptard version. As per his benchmark of honesty, he should resign on such severe charge by his own MLA and Minister. Congress and BJP reacted as per the information of charge. My corruption is same as your and his corruption.

                                  In AAP there is not even 1 percent corruption compared to Congress and BJP who have looted the country jointly in 70 years. They hate AAP because it is biggest hurdle in their loot and only honest party in the country. BJP is destroying w country using gau rakshaks, Bajrang dal and Hindu Yuva vahini which is the only development they have done so far. Kapil Mishra was long time bJP agent. His mother was bJP Mayor.

                                    As per you version, all founder members of aap are BJP members. AAP time is ticking. Look at the sunken look of Arvind Kejriwal who enjo defaming other as fund. He didn't know how their victims mental hardship as victim of defamation. Now, he should file defamation charge against kapil if he want to disprove corruption charge.

                                    Raghavji, please give comment in your name rather than in disguise. Your own charge of corruption against Arun jaitly has turn into defamation charge against you because you could not produce actionable evidence. You have to pay Rs 10 crore for damage charge.

It is very very hard to provide a clean system to Indian who are born with corruption in their flood and who only vote people who can kick them after election.
