Taking a jibe at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, sacked minister Kapil Mishra on Monday responded to his Eid greeting by wishing him an “ED Mubarak”, referring to the Enforcement Directorate. Kejriwal’s tweet, which was retweeted 1,800 times was no match for Mishra’s, which was shared 3,800 times.

Mishra, who held the post of water minister in the AAP government, was sacked earlier this year after which he levelled corruption charges against Kejriwal. He alleged the AAP convener interfered in the water tanker scam — which previously plagued the Congress government under Sheila Dikshit — and that he took money from health minister Satyendra Jain. Jain is already being probed by the CBI. Mishra had also alleged financial irregularities in the AAP’s funding.

Mishra has been targetting Kejriwal ever since he was kicked out of the party. After approaching the anti-corruption bureau with his complaints, he also moved the CBI and raised his concerns with Delhi Governor Anil Baijpal.

Meanwhile, his allegations also disrupted the functioning of the Delhi Assembly in May. Mishra had held up a banner with corruption charges against Kejriwal in the House, which had angered other AAP MLAs, who lunged at him and dragged him until the Speaker Ram Niwas Goel ordered he be marshalled out.

Kejriwal did not reply to Mishra’s tweet.

    If BJP Mishra has guts then put CBI,ED IT on kapil Mishra's mother his relatives instead of CM, Dy CM so as to investigate their crores of inproportinate wealth compared to their earning then only one will know that from where the 2 crores are coming to him for all these indirect adverti t of bjp through his speeches. All his statements are paid and shows his mental status of psychopathy. As usual, insult to Eid festival by Mishra by making eid synonym to The unholy parrot Ed. Investigate his corrupt mother instead of honests. She would reply that all the wealth money is acccumulative while posted by BJP as Mayor of Delhi MCD,,,,because she thinks milking MCD is a legitimate source of money. Half of her her relatives' wealth has come from her bjp party for mentoring her son kapil for regular speeches. kejriwal failed to understand this crooked son of a Bjp mayor in choosing him over Bhardwaj. During MCD election kapil made sure that water don't reach peoople

                What happened to the 2 Crores that he claimed Kejri had taken ? Has the police recovered those 2 crores yet ? or was it imaginary like his other allegations ?

                  Do you think AK will keep that money in his pocket/home??? Are you seriously that dumbo?? Mere allegations ( like what AK does) will not work at the same time a proper investigation is required and that will take time.
