New Delhi [India], May 13 (ANI): Sacked Aam Admi Party (AAP) minister Kapil Mishra, whose indefinite hunger strike entered its fourth day today, asserted that he won't stop his 'satyagraha' till he receives the adequate information about the junkets being made with the AAP. Mishra told ANI, "I am feeling well even after four days of fasting. Arvind Kejriwal should face truth. He should provide me information soon, if they don't have anything to hide." Speaking on AAP MLA Sanjeev Jha who has also decided to go on AN indefinite hunger strike, Mishra said, "Everyone has right to protest outside my house. Full protection should be provided to Sanjeev Jha." Earlier, first mayor of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation and mother of Kapil Mishra Dr. Annapurna Mishra had joined her son in taking on Kejriwal saying, "My son is being accused of being an agent of BJP. I never thought Arvind Kejriwal would behave in such a manner. I asked Kejriwal to speak out on the issue related to the alleged tanker scam. Anyway, my son was never interested in joining AAP and it was Kejriwal who wanted Kapil to join AAP." Stating how proud she was that her son was carrying out a 'Satyagraha', she adding that he is an agent of truth and not of BJP. She also highlighted that by sacking Kapil Mishra, Kejriwal had proved what kind of a person he is. "Kapil Mishra has a higher stature than Kejriwal's as there is no corruption allegation against the sacked water minister." Mishra had submitted documents related to the tanker scam to the ACB, while saying that he also apprised the agency about the misuse of the money by the Delhi government. Kapil told Kejriwal, "Someone told me if these details are revealed, the public won't let you stay in power for another moment. What is the secret behind these trips?" (ANI)
