I saw Jain give Rs 2 crore to Arvind Kejriwal on Friday, says Kapil Mishra

The charge came less than an hour after he sent out a cryptic tweet on Sunday morning after meeting Delhi’s lieutenant governor Anil Baijal.

Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra has said he saw health minister Satyendar Jain give Rs 2 crore to chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday.

The charge came less than an hour after he sent out a cryptic tweet on Sunday morning after meeting Delhi’s lieutenant governor Anil Baijal.

“i have witnessed HIM taking illegal cash.. have shared all details with Lt. Gov,” he tweeted, adding it was not possible to keep quiet and he didn’t care even if he lost his life.

Mishra was on Saturday thrown out of the cabinet and stripped off the water and tourism portfolios by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The party said he had failed to resolve Delhi’s water problem but Mishra said his removal came on the day he shared details of the alleged Rs 400-crore water tanker scandal report with the chief minister.

Mishra’s sacking is Round 2 of the war within the ruling Aam Aadmi party where trouble has been brewing after back-to-back poll defeats.
