Kapil Mishra’s all-out war against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal


The sacked water minister of Delhi, Kapil Mishra, has opened an all-out war against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Minutes after being sacked from Kejriwal’s cabinet, Mishra told PTI, “I was not informed of the decision and as per my knowledge, it was taken unilaterally by Kejriwal. The Cabinet or the Political Affairs Committee (the AAP’s top decision- making body) was not involved.”

He then took to Twitter to make even more scathing remarks about his leader.

In a veiled attack against Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyender Jain, Mishra wrote, “I am the only minister with no corruption charges. No CBI enquiry against me. Never offered job to any daughter or relative. Busted Sheila’s corruption. (sic)”

It appears that his references of daughter and relative were meant for Jain and Kejriwal, who were recently accused of favouring their kin by Shunglu Panel recently.

In another tweet, Mishra wrote, “This is my party. I’ve been associated with the movement since 2004. I’m not going anywhere. Will cleanse the system by staying here. Will use broom to remove the garbage.”

“I will reveal big names, and maybe because of those names, such a decision has been made. I am Kapil Mishra and Kejriwal knows the role I have played against corruption,” Mishra was quoted by NDTV.

Mishra was removed from his post on Saturday. He’s also been removed from the chairman of Delhi Jal Board.

Kailash Gehlot has replaced Mishra. Rajendra Pal Gautam is another new face, who has found a place in the cabinet after a reshuffle.

Mishra was believed to be close to Kumar Vishwas, who the AAP MLA, Amanatullah Khan, had recently accused of being a ‘BJP agent’ and attempting to take control of the party.

The rift had assumed an ugly face after Vishwas reportedly threatened to quit the party alleging that Khan was speaking the language of someone top in the party.

Kejriwal had rushed to his house and, in a late night meeting, managed to persuade him to stay in the party.

The following day, during an emergency meeting of the PAC, the party’s highest decision making body, Khan suspended from the primary membership of the party. Vishwas was made in-charge of the AAP’s Rajasthan affairs.

Khan, the MLA from Okhla, was later appoint as the head of an assembly panel. He was also appointed a member in seven newly constituted committees, including the Special Inquiry Committee, of the House by the Speaker.
