Hitting back at Sisodia's response to his allegations, Mishra tweeted that till date, AAP's leaders had been blaming EVM rigging for their losses and now, suddenly, they were blaming him and water shortages for their poor show at the polls. कल तक सारी दुनिया को कह रहे थे कि EVM के कारण हारे चुनाव अब अचानक पानी का मुद्दा। मीडिया के सामने आने से क्यों बच रहे है @ArvindKejriwal — Kapil Mishra (@KapilMishraAAP) May 7, 2017

He added that it was just a matter of a few days. जिस दिन सत्येंद्र जैन जेल जाएंगे, मेरी एक एक बात सच साबित हो जाएगी। चंद दिनों का इंतजार साँच को आंच नहीं — Kapil Mishra (@KapilMishraAAP) May 7, 2017
