Sacked Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra on Sunday said that he will not quit the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and asserted of being the only one in Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet who does not face any corruption charges.
“I will neither quit the party nor can anyone send me out,” Mishra told the media here.
“I am the only minister in the cabinet who faces no corruption charges nor has the CBI initiated any inquiry against me,” he said.
While addressing the media, the minister alleged that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accepted bribe of Rs 2 crore at his residence here.

Mishra said the cash was handed over to Kejriwal by AAP leader Satyendra Jain.
“I have informed about this to Lt Governor Anil Baijal and will also inform all investigation agencies,” Mishra told the media here.
Delhi CM Kejriwal on Saturday removed Mishra and inducted AAP legislators Rajendra Pal Gautam and Kailash Gehlot in his cabinet.
Gehlot, an MLA from Najafgarh, and Gautam from Seemapuri, will be sworn in as new ministers.
However, they have not been allotted any portfolio yet.
