Mishra faints, alleges AAP scam worth crores of rupeees

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Sacked minister Kapil Mishra today fainted at a press conference after charging Chief Minister Kejriwal with financial "irregularities".

Mishra was taken to the RML hospital here from his residence in Civil Lines, where he has been on a hunger strike for the last five days, demanding that the release details of foreign tours undertaken by five leaders.

The former Water Resources and Tourism Minister in the Kejriwal government, before taking ill, alleged that the party received funds wroth "crores of rupees" from several "shell" companies.

"All this happened with the knowledge of Kejriwal as these shell companies deposited money in the account on the same day and time in January 2014," Mishra said, brandishing documents.

He demanded Kejriwal's resignation, and immediately after that lost consciousness.

The ex-minister had, after he was sacked, levelled personal allegations of "corruption" against Kejriwal and his minister Satyendar Jain.
