Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra held a press conference Friday making more allegations against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The former water and culture minister claimed that AAP received donations in the form of hawala money from shell companies. Mishra said that he has evidence to back his claims.

Mishra, at the conference, said Delhi businessman who claimed he had donated Rs 2 crore to AAP is a patsy. He further showed letterheads from four companies and said they were a forgery made at home. Mishra also said Kumar’s signature is missing from two of the four letterheads. He further pointed out that Kumar was made CEO of the company this year, days before MCD elections, but the donations were made under his name in 2014.

Mishra also said that Income Tax department (I-T department) questioned AAP over Rs 2 crore, but the party claimed they do not know who made the donations. He further “challenged” Kejriwal to tell I-T department that he received donations from Mukesh Kumar. IT dept still does not know the source of Rs 2 crore, Mishra said. The sacked water minister also said that Kumar’s company is itself a bank and VAT defaulter, and asked how he can donate Rs 2 crore to AAP.

Earlier, Mishra in a tweet said that he will reveal a “big truth” on Friday. In a tweet, Mishra said, “Sabhi AAP vidhayak saathiyon se nivedan, aaj ki PC zarur dekhein (I request all AAP MLAs and friends to watch today’s Press Conference). I will be revealing a big truth at 11 am with evidences.”

Mishra, earlier this week, ended his hunger strike against Kejriwal, and met with CBI officials to give “irrefutable evidence” against Delhi CM. Coming out of the meeting, he said that he has given evidences against Kejriwal and two AAP MLAs over their alleged links with shell companies.

The former AAP leader was sacked by the party earlier this month after he went against the party leaders and raised allegations of corruption against Kejriwal and Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain. He claimed that Kejriwal took money from Jain and also interfered in investigations of water tanker scam, which remained a huge blot on previous Sheila Dikshit government in the capital. Jain, in turn, has filed defamation case against Mishra at Tiz Hazari court on Friday. AAP has claimed that Mishra is working on instructions from opposition parties.

Highlights:

11:12 am: Mishra also “challenged” Kejriwal to tell I-T department that he received donations from Mukesh Kumar. He further said that Kumar’s company is itself a bank and VAT defaulter, and asked how he can donate Rs 2 crore to AAP.

11: 10 am: Mishra further pointed out that letter heads from two of the four companies had Mukesh Kumar’s signature, but the other two companies did not have his signature. He further said that when I-T dept had asked from where the party received Rs 2 crore, AAP had said it does not know. IT department still does not know the source of Rs 2 crore, Mishra said. “Why Mukesh Kumar was hidden from everyone?,” Mishra asked further.

11:05 am: Delhi-businessman who claims to have donated Rs 2 crore to AAP is a patsy by Kejriwal, Mishra claimedThe sacked water minister showed letterheads of company claiming they were fake and were forged at homes. He also raised questions regarding identity of Mukesh Kumar. He furtepointed out that Kumar became CEO of one of the companies just days before Delhi MCD polls, but the donations were made in 2014.

    This one shows that the reporter is a biased paid one from party who has largest surplus blackmoney. The reporter mentioned that kapil was sacked after he alleged......a new spread of lies. REad non paid news paper HINDU'S report who brought out the truth that kapil was planning a coup against cm & planning to takeover as CM. He was trying to poach 15 MLAs tel them that those 21 MLAs who r on verge of removal from EC and are now with kapil because of urance from BJP that EC will not disqualify them if kapil forms the govt. since God had given only 3-4 MLAs to BJP knowing their crookedness, BJP wanted 15 21 36 to break kejriwal. Thus the coup planned via his mother who is an ex BJP mayor. But every one is not dishonest greedy like Kapil Muni l Mishra, and the bin of his paapi was spilled by these MLAs. After 3-4 days of spil , he was sacked. And after told about sacking, he started alleging with full back up support of BJP missionaries. Read hindu over last few days

      Mishra's joke is a bit complicated because he seems to have very little knowledge of the way political parties are funded. If a party receives a donation, its responsibility ends after making the name of the donor public. (Incidentally, no other party except AAP made its donation records public.) Under the extant Indian laws, once a party discloses the source, it is the responsibility of the donor to explain how he arranged the money for donation, not of the party, which in this case happens to be AAP.... Now that donor has disclosed that he is the source of the money, it is for him to explain to the I-T Department, in case it decides to question him about where he got the money from. If the I-T Department sees fraudulent transactions in the AAP account, it should go ahead with a detailed investigation to nail the culprits....

          THIS IS THE WAY THE WEALTHY CORRUPTS ARE SUPPRESSING THE TRUTH BY FI DEFAMATION SUIT. . ALL CORRUPTS MUST BE HANGED IN THIS COUNTRY. OTHERWISE SUCH DRAMAS WILL CONTINUE AND BILLIONS OF PEOPLE WILL BE LOOTED BY CORRUPT, DREADED AND ANTI-NATIONAL POLITICIANS RESULTED IN ECONOMIC UNREST, ACUTE POVERTY AND UNEMPLOYMENT ALL OVER COUNTRY. WHY MODI GOVT IS SILENT SPECTATOR WHEN PEOPLE VOTED TO POWER ON ISSUE OF CORRUPTION? WHY CORRUPTS ARE SHIELDED BY BJP GOVT? ALL CORRUPTS ARE MAJOR THREAT FOR THIS COUNTRY AND ARE ROAD BLOCK IN PROGRESS OF COUNTRY.

                    IT is manned by corrupt officials how come they are unable to join dots as who was this Mukesh Kumar what are his source of earning so that he is able to donate this huge amount. once CBI arrests this Mukesh Kumar then the bank officials should be hauled by enforcement agencies as any money entering banking channel will show the origin of this 2 crores. once officials are sent to jail like the IAS ooficials they will give eidence of wrong doings by the likes of Akela Arvind then all these noble men can be made Govt guests in TIHAR

                        He is such a great Nautankibaaz. Nobody cares what he said. If there were corruptions, he is also liable for everything. He is an agent of BJP.

                          Kanjarwal is the most corrupt politician in present times. Make no mistakes about this. He is a living exampke of clever devil. He is hand in glove wih hawalabaaz Satyendra Jain. Both are partners ib corruption. Th relatives of both have becone multi-millionaires in just 2 years.That is why he is more dangerous than a Lalu or a Mayawati or a Mulayam. How he looted and cheated Delhi is a classic example if treachery. He even supported Porkistan after surgical strikes.

                            Mishra seems to have been collecting all this for at least 2 years by his own submission,unless the income tax dept supplied him with the details of the 2 Cr.If he had knowledge of all this,then obviously he is an accomplice and wil ly kept quiet while he was a Minister.These daily bombs and drama of fainting etc are BJP's fabrication,and don't show mishra in good light.His statement ,that he would drag kejriwal by the neck ,is Disgraceful,arrogant and defies all logic.Kejriwal happens to be the CM of Delhi.Who is mishra?An ordinary citizen who seems to be suffering from delusion .If this threat had been made against a BJP Minister,He would have hauled to jail by the police.Law is the same for all !?

                                  Dear Ash , your comments are shocking and shameful . It seems YOU YOUR SELF living in delusion. ? You had forgotten - That till date , Kejriaal had not replied point wise specific response to KAPIL MISHRA"s allegations . ----- If allegations are false , ask MR Kejriwal to file CRIMINAL DEFAMATION SUIT against Kapil Mishra ( for spoi his image by leve false allegations ) ?? D ont be blind BHAKT of Kejriwal ? Remember , how kejriwal shunted out Prashant Bhushan , Yogendra yadav ?? ------ Ask Kekriwal to reply --- Why he had incurred huge expenditure of crores of rupees on adverti t ?? -------- In my opinion , Keriwal is more dangerous than LALU and other similar politicians ?? -- Kejriwal did not hesitate to take support of congress for acquiring power ?? He is the most cunning and shrewd politician INDIA has ever seen ?? Remember , for getting himself treated , Kejriwal goes to PRIVATE AYURVEDIC HOSPITALS situated far away in DELHI ?? ---

                                  Kapil Mishra was a minister in Kejriwal government. He is equally an offender for all frauds and misfeasance by the AAP government on the theory of collective responsibility of council of ministers.. He should be hauled before law.

His shirt must have been "small" After the goddess of election smiled on him and elevated him to the chief minister he looks like a mini sumo wrestler in the making and the cough has disappeared . Amazing. what transformation a fistfull of Rupees can have on your body.Glad to note that, now, the shirt size has ballooned to Extra large"

Even a child will know this is to convert cash into white. Mishra does not have IT, CBI under him. It is for these agencies to investigate. Let the truth come out. Why are you prejudging the decision. The issues raised by Mishra warrants urgent investigation. And that is what the Kerju himself used to do. Make allegations and ask the accused to resign and face investigations. Why do you have a different standard when the accused is Kejru himself.

Kejri cannot hide behind stupid excuses like timing, language etc. He has to answer about the differences between collection declared to IT, EC and actual (as per bank), about favors given to Bansal, Hawala transactions of AAP including the donation of 2 Cr from 4 small companies of a single owner whose companies are bank and Vat payment defaulters. No escape by playing victim card.

                                            CM Kejriwal was always a scammer but he used 'accuse the accuser' tactics to save his skin. Once those Delhi auto-rickshaw drivers who provided fulcrum for CM Kejriwal back in 2015, today they are ready to throw their shoes at him. When your supporters turns against you overnight you cannot always blame bribery and sycophancy, it's just your inefficiency speaking.

                                              Mishra scam by Jhumlas shows they had planted him to break and finish from AAP. Since they can't win in a fair and honest fight against AAP they have planted people in Havala etc.
