On the second day of his protest at his residence at Civil Lines, Mishra mocked the “silence of Kejriwal” at his allegations. “I never saw Kejriwal so silent.

He also attacked his party for claiming that the man who tried to physically assault him on Wednesday was a BJP man. Saying he was actually associated with a mohalla clinic, Mishra alleged, “Even before police took away the attacker, Sanjay Singh (AAP leader) described him as a BJP youth wing member.
