NEW DELHI: Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra alleged today that he witnessed his AAP colleague Satyendar Jain give party chief Arvind Kejriwal Rs 2 crore in cash.
Mishra added that he informed Delhi’s Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) about this transaction immediately. Yesterday, when he went to meet the AAP chief, Mishra told him he’s informed the ACB. Mishra implied that’s why he was sacked from his ministerial posts yesterday by Kejriwal+ .
“Day before yesterday, at Kejriwal’s house I saw Satyendar Jain give Kejriwal Rs 2 crore in cash,” said Mishra. Jain is health and PWD minister in the Kejriwal government.
“I asked him ‘What is this? What is this for?’ He (Kejriwal) refused to answer. And then he said ‘In politics things like this happen that can only be talked about later,'” Mishra said today at a press conference at Rajghat.
“I couldn’t sleep all night after this,” Mishra added.
Mishra said he “had to” tell Delhi’s Anti Corruption Bureau about this immediately.
“After seeing the cash with my own eyes, there is no way I could be quiet. I don’t care about my political position or even my life. I couldn’t take this lying down,” Mishra said.
