Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rebel Kapil Mishra has said he will make another “expose” on Sunday, which, he claimed, would leave no “moral right” for Arvind Kejriwal to remain the chief minister of Delhi.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, axed minister Mishra, who has been on a hunger strike for four days, said he would reveal more facts about Kejriwal at 11 am on Sunday.

“This time, the expose is not related to Raghav Chadha or Durgesh Pathak. After I reveal the truth, Kejriwalji will have no moral right to be Delhi’s CM. The truth is so bitter that people would feel cheated by AAP and stop trusting the party,” he said.

Mishra accused Kejriwal of using AAP MLAs as a “shield” after party legislator Sanjeev Jha announced a hunger strike to counter his ongoing fast. Jha was detained by police before he could begin his strike outside Mishra’s residence in Civil Lines.

Open letter wars

Jha, an MLA from Burari, wrote an open letter to Mishra before beginning his planned hunger strike on Saturday.

“On May 7, Kapil Mishra had said that Arvind Kejriwal had met Satyendar Jain where he paid him Rs 2 crore. My question to him is at what time did he meet the chief minister. Which car did he use? I have the entire day’s video footage (of people entering Kejriwal),” he wrote in the letter.

“The whole world knows about Kejriwal’s credentials and he (Mishra) should give evidence to back his claim. If it turns out to be true, even I will join him in his hunger strike against Kejriwal,” Jha said.

Mishra hit back at Jha with another open letter and “advised” him to drink lots of water during the hunger strike. “You (Kejriwal) made a strategy to use MLAs as a shield. However, only one MLA came forward to be that shield?” Mishra said.
