NEW DELHI: After sacking Environment, Food & Supplies Minister Asim Ahmed Khan over graft charges, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is set to caution party MLAs, and their families, against a repeat of the episode.

Kejriwal said the MLAs will be reminded of the background of the party, its ideology and how it rose from an anti-corruption movement. He will also send a stern message at the meeting that those erring will not be spared.

"Meeting all MLAs, with families, tomorrow evening. To remind them why we came in politics. To warn them that Asim Khan episode should not happen again," Kejriwal tweeted. The meeting with all party MLAs will take place at his Flag Staff Residence. He is also expected to caution family members of MLAs.

AAP's Delhi unit secretary Dilip Pandey said, "We can tolerate poverty, insults, but not corruption...MLA meeting is to reiterate this ideology of the party." The formation of AAP has its roots in social activist Anna Hazare's anti-graft crusade movement. Kejriwal had yesterday announced sacking of Khan over an alleged graft case amounting to Rs 6 lakh.
