A day after he appeared before the Central Bureau Investigation, suspended AAP leader Kapil Mishra sat on an indefinite hunger strike in protest against the party leadership. Mishra has been demanding senior AAP leaders to disclose details of the travel expenses incurred during their foreign trips. “I am sitting on a ‘satyagraha’ till I get a clarification on details of international travel expenses of some senior AAP leaders. It is not a dharna but a satyagraha. I would like to send out a message to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to put out the details of the foreign tours of his five AAP leaders — Satyendra Jain, Ashish Khetan, Raghav Chaddha, Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak in public domain,” Mishra told the media.

Mishra alleged that AAP leaders — Satyendra Jain, Ashish Khetan, Raghav Chaddha, Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak — used “illegal money” to fund their foreign trips. He also claimed that he has been receiving death threats over the phone.  “I have been getting life threats, got a threat also from an international number. But I am not afraid of anything,” Mishra said.

On Tuesday, Mishra lodged three FIRs against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Health Minister Satyendar Jain and other AAP leaders. “I have filed three FIRs with the CBI. The first FIR is in connection with the cash deal between Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Kejriwal, while the second one is on how Jain has benefitted close relatives of Arvind Kejriwal in illegal land deals,” Mishra told news agency ANI.

    The constant explanation that Kapil Mishra is doing it to join BJP is such nonsense. Kapil is most ferocious opponent of BJP. Even uming he wants to join the BJP, he can at any time without raising any questions as a prerequisite. AAPtards should answer legitimate questions and stop doing tamasha.

        When I was growing up the first time I got into honesty was when VP Singh happened. When Kanjriwal and AAP happened I was optimistic skeptic. Optimism for AAP is long gone and skepticism has stood i good stead. We do need people like Kejri from time to time lest we do forget or become too optimistic for messiah. In fact concept of messiah is all wrong and needless to say VP Singh may have inadvertently done some good but not Kanjriwal

          How long the citizens of the country be cheated ? The debate of honesty in public life , the concept of transparency in public conduct and good governance were all brought in to the public domain by IAC movement under the leadership of Annaji, Kejriwaljii , Kapil Mishrajii and their types. Probity is the main ethos of all. But the inherent contradiction of power ruined the hype, narratives & level playing of the movement. Only sticking to power by hook or crook is the motto. Taking side is not our concern. The overall developments is disturbing one. The volunteers and citizens of India are watching. All intellectuals and professional may go back their profession and they should not waste their creativity in THIS public bickering of AAP-Vs-AAP. THEY ARE FREE TO COMEBACK WHEN THE COOK O OF REVOLUTION /MOVEMENT WILL KNOCK AT THEIR DOORS... Ohh COMRADES & FRIENDS , COME REVOLUTION HAS COME..... Do we now need an another leader ..............? Jai Hind....
