MLA Devinder Singh Sehrawat today asserted that the following party's sacked Cabinet minister Kapil Mishra's stunning revelation it is crystal clear that the Arvind Kejriwal Government has completely compromised with corruption.

-"Used to wonder why no one took action against Satyendra Jain despite being aware of his corrupt activities, now I know".

Later, in a tweet, he wondered if his ouster was linked to the exposure on the tanker scam which he was scheduled to make on Sunday. I will remain in the party and fight against corruption. "I am the only minister in the Cabinet who has no CBI case filed against me". In a tweet, he said he exposed former chief minister Sheila Dikshit in the tanker mafia scam and had not given any post to any of his relatives. Vishwas had threatened to quit the party before Kejriwal and other senior AAP leaders managed to assuage his hurt feelings and appointed him in charge of the AAP's affairs in Rajasthan.

Citing resason for Mishra's removal, a AAP insider said, "since the situation of water supply was found not to be good during the municipal elections, and several MLAs also spoke about the same problem in their constituencies, so Kapil Mishra was removed from the post".


Mishra said he "had to" tell Delhi's Anti Corruption Bureau about this immediately. "Seeing Jain hand over the cash with my own eyes made it impossible for me to stay quiet". "I couldn't sleep all night", he said. I even had a discussion about this with Arvind Kejriwal, but he simply asked me to trust him. "We are ready to face any probe and party will fully cooperate with all concerned officials and agencies", the AAP statement said.

"I had told him that I will submit the names of the responsible persons to the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB)", Mishra added. As part of the formula, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia could take Kejriwal's place while the latter focuses on rebuilding the party and his image.

Earlier on Saturday Mishra had said that he will come out with a massive tanker scam expose before the public on Sunday at 11 am.

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari claimed that Mr Mishra's resignation establishes Kejriwal government's involvement in the tanker scam.
