NEW DELHI: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today said the allegations of corruption levelled by sacked Minister Kapil Mishra did not merit a response.

A day after being dropped as a minister, AAP MLA Kapil Mishra today levelled stunning allegations of corruption against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyendra Jain, saying he had seen the CM taking Rs 2 crore cash from Jain.

"His allegations do not merit a response. He has been sacked due to poor performance," Sisodia told reporters.

"The allegations are so absurd and there are no facts," he added.

Mishra's surprise sacking came days after he sided with senior party leader Kumar Vishwas who has been at loggerheads with the party leadership.

Earlier, as Mishra went to meet the LG at Raj Niwas, top leadership of the AAP remained huddled at Kejriwal's residence. Vishwas, who was also present, left a little before Mishra made the allegations before reporters at Raj Ghat.
