I'm not a BJP agent, says sacked AAP minister

Sanjay Singh, who rejected corruption allegations against party chief Arvind Kejriwal in totality, said that Kapil Mishra's claims are a result of his frustration after losing his ministerial berth in in the Delhi government.

Earlier on Sunday, Mishra met Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and briefed him on the water tanker scam that has been one of the main battles against the previous Sheila Dikshit regime.

Mishra's remarks came after the Aam Adami Party (AAP) came out in support of Kejriwal, saying the sacked minister's allegations were "baseless" and that the Chief Minister's integrity was "unquestionable".

Mishra said he met Kejriwal on Saturday and asked him to explain the source of money to all party lawmakers but was sacked. "ACB will call me again for a detailed investigation", he told reporters after the meeting.

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and his Congress counterpart Ajay Maken were quick to demand Kejriwal's resignation on moral grounds. "I wasn't present at CM's residence on May 5 (Friday) and I can prove it in many ways", Jain said.

On June 15, Jung forwarded complaint to the ACB and asked the bureau to also probe Kejriwal's role and find out why he tried to suppress the report. "I have been with Arvind Kejriwal since 2004, even then my mother was in the BJP", said Mishra. But the Chief Minister's response, he said today, was unexpected.

President Muhammadu Buhari will travel to London on Sunday night (tonight) for "medical follow-up,"his spokesperson has said". A military source said three Boko Haram commanders had been freed in an exchange, but declined to give further details.

"Despite serious allegations of corruption against Jaitley, he is still holding the post of Finance Minister".

"Satyendra Jain told me in a private conversation that he would settled a Rs. 50 crore land deal for a 7-acre farmhouse in Chhattarpur in favour of Kejriwal's brother-in-law's Bansal family".

Reportedly, in June, 2016 Mishra had written to Kejriwal saying some members of the AAP could also be in trouble in addition to Dikshit. "We will record Mishra's statement and law will take its due course", Meena said.

Kejriwal should follow the examples of politicians who resigned in the wake of allegations levelled against them, she said. I challenge them to expel me from the party.

Mishra alleged he was sacked from the party as he mentioned the names of AAP leaders in his report about the alleged Rs. 400-crore scam.

An inquiry into the tanker scam set up by the AAP government past year put the size of the scam at Rs. 400 crore and accused former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit of creating artificial water scarcity to benefit the "tanker mafia".
