New Delhi [India], May 8(ANI): Following his suspension from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), former minister Kapil Mishra on Monday dared Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to expel him. "I had dared them to expel me from the AAP, it seems that they don't have courage to do so," Mishra said. Mishra further said he would file three cases against Satyendra Jain and other AAP leaders for indulging in corruption. "Tomorrow, I will file three FIRs with the CBI. One, against Satyendra Jain for giving Rs. 2 crore to Kejriwal. Two against Jain for helping Kejriwal's family to acquire land deals illegally. Three on the basis of a complaint I received in an email about irregularities in the party," he said. He alleged that AAP leaders like Ashish Khetan, Sanjay Singh, Satyendra Jain, Raghav Chadha and Durgesh Pandey used party funds to travel abroad. Mishra further said he has received 150 complaints on his newly launched mail ID, letscleanaap@gmail.com from AAP volunteers. Later, Kejriwal in a tweet said, "Truth will win. Tomorrow special session of Delhi assembly begins."

Describing the decision to suspend Mishra as "predictable", the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) mocked the AAP for being a "one-man show". "This party only believes in one -man show. the volunteers role is to keep the king happy. They won't even hesitate to ditch people like Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan," BJP leader Vijendra Gupta told ANI. "It's shameful, and I think, Kapil Mishra already predicted that and it is three for everybody to see. This is a party that spoke about having candidates, leaders from, the people and now, Kapil Mishra has raised serious charges of graft against big guns. It is really shameful, but predictable. This is what you expect Arvind Kejriwal and his stooges to do," BJP leader Shazia Ilmi told ANI. Earlier, the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) of the AAP suspended its MLA Kapil Mishra from the party's primary membership. (ANI)
