Just hours before, Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader, Satyendra Jain filed criminal defamation case against the sacked Water Minister Kapil Mishra and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) – Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) MLA Manjinder S Sirsa, Mishra held a press conference making more allegations against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and AAP in the national capital on Friday.

Laying out the first charges against the party, Mishra said that the video being circulated by APP as well as being retweeted by Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh and many other AAP leaders is false. He also said that the party workers were also asked to ‘make’ the video viral. In the press briefing, Mishra said that the video was shared to shield AAP.

Mishra said that the video was an attempt by AAP to show that the Rs 2 cr taken by Kejriwal was actually a donation from a businessman Mukesh Kumar after he was impressed by the way AAP was working.

Mishra also claimed that the video shared by Delhi CM was an attempt to hide his own wrong-deeds and to back the CM, Sisodia, Sanjay and many others shared the video. Kapil Mishra also alleged that the person who donated the money, Mukesh Kumar, is now being brought out in the open to shield a big name from the party.

Mishra also refuted claims being made by Mukesh Kumar of having donated Rs 2 cr to AAP. The sacked minister said Mukesh’s claims were being made under the guidance of Kejriwal to conceal the identity of a Hem Prakash Sharma, whose name has surfaced from the MCA website.

During the press briefing, Mishra also said that earlier, when Kejriwal was questioned over the Rs 2 cr, Kejriwal said that he was not aware about it but now he has gone ahead and shared Mukesh Kumar’s video.

Targeting Kejriwal again, Mishra said that he now challenges the Delhi CM to write to the income tax officials telling him where the Rs 2 cr came from.
