Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kapil Mishra, who was removed from the Delhi Cabinet in a reshuffle on Saturday, alleged on Sunday that he saw Delhi Chief Minister receive Rs 2 crore in cash from leader Satyendra Kumar Jain.

According to Mishra, who was addressing the media at Rajghat, the incident took place on Friday at the chief minister's residence. Mishra added that Kejriwal refused to explain the matter, following which he decided to take action. 

Mishra also said that Jain had told him about settling land deals worth Rs 50 crore for Kejriwal’s relatives. Further, Mishra said that he was willing to pursue the matter with all concerned investigative agencies, including the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Prior to addressing the media, Mishra had already given details of the information he had to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.

Shortly after being axed from the state Cabinet, Mishra had claimed that he would expose the names involved in alleged on 11:30 am on Sunday at Rajghat.

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
