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.

IT department still does not know the source of Rs 2 crore, Mishra said. “Why Mukesh Kumar was hidden from everyone?,” Mishra asked further.

    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.
