NEW DELHI: Sacked minister Kapil Mishra once again leveled corruption allegation against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and said that the AAP chief had opposed the demonetisation move as it threatened to derail his money laundering attempts. He also said that Party got donation through Hawala route.

Mishra tried to punctured a Delhi-based businessman Mukesh Kumar claims that he has given donation to the party legally. Mishra said that Kumar was merely a mask for proclaimed black money offenders. "Ten days before AAP took office in 2013, Mukesh Kumar's company was slapped a notice by the Delhi government for not paying VAT. And then this person goes on to donate Rs 2 crore to AAP, " he said. He further stated that his company is a defaulter for not paying VAT.

On the other hand, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain has filed two criminal defamation complaints in the court on Friday against Mishra and an AAP MLA for allegedly defaming him. Jain accused AAP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa of defaming him by organizing a press conference and alleging that the minister was indulging in circulating huge amounts of illegitimate money within the party.

Meanwhile, AAP who has stopped giving any importance to Kapil Mishra termed Mishra as “stale.” Senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh said despite probe agencies, including the CBI, ED, I-T Department and Delhi police, “hounding the AAP” for the last two years, not a single piece of evidence has emerged against the party. "If the Delhi police can reach AAP MLA Somnath Bharti's pet dog during an investigation, surely these agencies can conduct a probe and punish whoever is guilty? This is a brazen witch-hunt to crush an opposition party," Singh told a press conference.
