According to the police, Jha did not have permission to hold the strike and was thus detained along with his supporters. Jha said that he would join Kapil Mishra, if the allegations made by him against Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal are proven to be correct. Meanwhile, Mishra's hunger strike entered its fourth day today, as he vowed to not 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 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." (ANI)
