Sacked Delhi cabinet minister Kapil Mishra said he will “expose” the ruling party’s links to hawala operators on Friday, a day after a man claimed he had donated Rs 200 lakh to the party in 2014.

An east Delhi businessman Mukesh Sharma on Wednesday said he had donated Rs 50 lakh each through four of his companies to the Aam Aadmi Party.

The revelation comes days after Mishra alleged that the party has been receiving money through donations from shell companies for the past three years.

He also alleged that the party had declared only Rs 9 crore to the Election Commission in 2014 when in fact it had over Rs 45 crore in it account.

The suspended AAP party member has been hurling allegations of financial irregularities at party founder and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, and other party members. Almost a fortnight ago, Mishra began is charge at AAP claiming he saw fellow cabinet minister Satyendar Jain give Kejriwal Rs 2 crore, and demanded to know where the money came from and what it was meant for.

He has since also demanded details of foreign trips of five AAP ministers, carrying out a six-day hunger strike at his residence.
