New Delhi [India], May 09 (ANI): Suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Kapil Mishra on Tuesday handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) the documents in connection with the corruption charges he leveled against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other party leaders. "I am going to give evidences and detailed information to the CBI and now the agency will take all the decision. A probe should be launched. I have received 211 corruption complaints till now. Everything will be unearthed after CBI's investigation till then I can only say that whatever is done was against national interest," he told the media while going to CBI office. He further asked the AAP leaders, Satyendra Jain, Ashish Khetan, Raghav Chaddha, Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak to put out the details of their foreign tours in public domain, while saying that he would sit on a hunger strike if they refuse to do so. After being suspended from the party's primary membership, Mishra earlier in the day issued an open letter to Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal while challenging him to contest open elections. Asserting that Kejriwal once used to be his 'guru', Mishra said that he was going to lodge a string of FIRs against the one who taught him to how to fight against corruption. "I am releasing an open letter to Kejriwal. I am going to file FIRs against the person from whom I have learnt to fight against corruption and to take a stand for the truth. He used to be my 'guru' and today I am fighting against him. This is very painful for me but I can't keep quiet. From whom I have learnt these things, today I want his blessings for the victory in this war against corruption. I will file an FIR against you and I am apologizing for the same," Mishra said. He further said that he was sacked from the state cabinet minister post because he wrote a letter to the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB). "If I had not written a letter to the ACB, then he would have not sacked me as the state cabinet minister. I have many evidences against Kejriwal. I know Kejriwal will try to give clarification on all the allegations made by me in the Delhi Assembly today and also brand me as a liar and a corrupt. I know his every tactics," he added. Asserting that Kejriwal is planning to remove him as member of legislative assembly, he said the decision would not affect him, adding that he is ready give his resignation if needed. "I am all alone in this fight and ready to sacrifice everything. But I would like to say that if you have a morality then accept my challenge and contest elections from either of our seats. Do you have the courage to face the people's mandate? If you have a fear of losing seat then contest the election without giving resignation. I am waiting for your reply," he said in a clear message to Kejriwal. Mishra will also slap Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with multiple FIRs today. Venting out his ire against Kejriwal on social media, Mishra in a series of tweet had said that he would lodge multiple FIRs against him in different cases. Taking to Twitter, the AAP MLA said that he would file the first FIR in connection with cash deal between Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Kejriwal, while the second one would be on illegal land deals between the duo. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">First FIR will be on cash deal between Satyendra Jain and Arvind Kejriwal Ji.</p>— Kapil Mishra (@KapilMishraAAP) <a href="https://twitter.com/KapilMishraAAP/status/861614154305622016">May 8, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Second FIR will be on How Satyendra Jain has benefitted close relatives of Arvind Kejriwal in illegal land deals.</p>— Kapil Mishra (@KapilMishraAAP) <a href="https://twitter.com/KapilMishraAAP/status/861614494304264192">May 8, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Mishra is also mulling to file a third FIR against AAP leaders Satyendar Jain, Ashish Khetan, Raghav Chaddha, Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak for using illegal money for foreign tours. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Third FIR will be on Foreign Tours using illegal money by Satyendra Jain, Ashish Khetan, Raghav Chaddha, Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak</p>— Kapil Mishra (@KapilMishraAAP) <a href="https://twitter.com/KapilMishraAAP/status/861615307529478145">May 8, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Earlier, the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) of the AAP suspended Mishra from the party's primary membership.(ANI)
