Sacked Delhi Water Minister and AAP leader Kapil Mishra on Sunday claimed that he saw Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accept Rs 2 crore in cash from Health Minister Satyendar Jain.

"Day before yesterday (Friday) I saw Jain handing over Rs 2 crore in cash to Kejriwal at his residence. I asked about the money but Kejriwal refused to answer," Mishra told the media, a day after being sacked on Saturday.

Mishra said he has informed Lt Governor Anil Baijal about this and said he will provide details to investigating agencies.

"I asked Kejriwal to call all party leaders, ministers and members to explain about the money. I urged him to seek an apology. And now, I have been sacked," said Mishra, and vowed to end corruption in the party.

He insisted he won't quit the Aam Aadmi Party. "I will neither quit the party nor anyone can ask me to go."

Reactions started pouring in after Kapil Mishra expose Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday rejected the corruption charge calling it "unbelievable". "The kind of allegations that have been made against Kejriwal are unsubstantiated. No one will believe them," Sisodia told the media. "There is no substance in this allegation."

Where as BJP demanded Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's resignation. "Kejriwal has no moral right to hold the post of Chief Minister. He must resign immediately," Bharatiya Janata Party Delhi unit Chief Manoj Tiwari said.

Congress also demanded the Modi government to initiate criminal action against Arvind Kejriwal over bribery allegations and asked him to step down as Delhi's Chief Minister.

Delhi Congress President Ajay Maken told the media that Mishra's claims were not mere allegations but testimony of an eyewitness warranting initiation of criminal proceedings against Kejriwal.

"Mishra's claim that Kejriwal took Rs 2 crore is not mere allegation rather an affidavit before the public of what he saw. He is saying what he saw as an eyewitness. The Centre, the Anti-Corruption Bureau and the CBI should immediately take action and register an FIR against Kejriwal.

"Kejriwal has no moral right to continue as the Chief Minister. He should immediately resign," said Maken.


AAP founder member Kumar Vishwas has also tweeted, though he had not attacked any one but had asked party carder to maintain calm and faith, he writes "maintain clam and have faith, good will happen for party and country"
