New Delhi [India], May 14 (ANI): Claiming that the party's leadership faced similar allegations of corruption in the past, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday went all guns blazing at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and called to stop tampering Delhi Minister Arvind Kejriwal's image. Countering sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra's allegations, AAP's Spokesperson Raghav Chadha said, "BJP is raising the same questions from last two years which were raised by Kapil Mishra today. I think he is mentally unstable." Speaking on the accusations of foreign visits, Chadha claimed that even before joining the party, he use to travel abroad. Echoing similar views, AAP senior leader Sanjay Singh alleged that BJP and Kapil Mishra are hand-in-glove. "Neel is an agent of BJP. He has also worked with BJP. I would ask BJP to stop using 'Sanghi Formula'. Refuting Mishra's claims, Singh further stated that "We have followed all the rules while taking donations. BJP is totally involved in this." Condemning the language used by Mishra in his conference, another AAP leader Ashutosh said, "I invite you, Kapil Mishra to AAP's office. I will open the door and then will make Kejriwal stand infront you.. If you won't drag him by the collar then I will think that there is still humanity left in you." In a dramatic press conference that ended with sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra fainting, the former accused Kejriwal of corruption and warned him to resign by the evening. Mishra said, "Arvind Kejriwal, have some shame. If you don't resign by today evening, I will drag you from your office to Tihar Jail. I'm Kapil Mishra." Mishra further alleged that for three continuous years, black money was converted into white and spent on foreign trips of the AAP leaders. "AAP did not inform about some of its funding which it received from fake companies," he said. Mishra further targeted Kejriwal and revealed that 16 shell companies added money worth crores in AAP's bank accounts. "These fake companies are registered in the name of AAP MLA from Moti Nagar, Shivcharan Goyal. These companies have given Rs 2 crore to Kejriwal at 12 a.m. The fund received from these companies were sent to same branch branch of Axis Bank where there were allegations of converting black money into white at the time of demonetisation," he added. AAP has its bank account at the Krishnanagar branch of Axis Bank and all the transactions happen from there. Mishra also shared a bank cheque without a date which has already been encashed. "I will file a case against Arvind Kejriwal in the Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday in connection with conversion of black money to white," the AAP leader said. Meanwhile, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) sent a summons notice to the political advisor of Kejriwal , Vaibhav Kumar in connection with water tanker scam. Kumar will be interrogated by the ACB on May 17. Last Thursday, Mishra made "serious allegations" against senior Delhi government functionaries in relation to the water tanker scam, which is alleged to have caused a loss of an estimated Rs. 400 crore to the State exchequer, in a detailed statement to the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB). Earlier, Mishra 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. (ANI)
