Breaking his silence for the first time after allegations of corruption was levelled against him by sacked minister of his cabinet Kapil Mishra, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday evening said “truth will win”. “Jeet satya ki hogi. kal vidhan sabha satr se iski shuruat. (Truth will triumph, its beginning will be made during tomorrow’s special session of the Delhi Assembly),” tweeted Kejriwal.
जीत सत्य की होगी। कल दिल्ली विधान सभा के विशेष सत्र से इसकी शुरुआत।

Kejriwal’s tweet came after AAP suspended the primary membership of Mishra. The decision to suspend Mishra’s membership was taken in a meeting of party PAC.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal’s wife also took to Twitter on Monday and said that her husband-in-law was no more after Mishra had alleged that Health Minister Satyendar Jain helped Kejriwal’s brother-in-law in acquiring a land at Delhi’s Chhatarpur area.
AAP has denied the allegations levelled by Mishra against the Delhi CM. On Sunday, Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had said that the allegations were so absurd that they did not merit a response. Kejriwal’s response comes two days after Mishra was sacked from his cabinet on Saturday.
