New Delhi [India] May 8 (ANI): The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday termed party MLA Kapil Mishra's allegations as baseless, adding the latter who has levelled serious allegations against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is a part of a "big conspiracy". "All the allegations are completely "baseless". Kapil Mishra's story did not add up and his actions only prove that he is making such accusations because he was removed from the post. A game is being played by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)," AAP spokesperson Sanjay Singh said. He added that it was Mishra who had objected when the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) had targeted Kejriwal earlier but was now claiming that he had proof against the Delhi Chief Minister. Singh went all out to blame the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for conspiring and using Mishra to create a rift in the party. "Mishra is only repeating centre's words," he asserted. Earlier in the day, Mishra demanded a lie-detector test for Kejriwal, state Health Minister Satyendra Jain and himself. Asserting that nobody would accept allegations against the Delhi Chief Minister, Mishra said that he had sought more time from Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to prove the charges. The AAP MLA earlier on Sunday night said he would give the names of two party leaders to the ACB in connection with the tanker scam. Triggering a row, Mishra yesterday made a shocking revelation, alleging that he "saw" Jain giving Rs. two crore to Kejriwal. "Day before yesterday, I saw Satyendra Jain giving Rs. two crore to Arvind Kejriwal and I wasn't able to sleep the entire night," he said in a press briefing. Mishra also claimed that he urged the Chief Minister to disclose as to from where he got the money. "There are several allegations on money laundering and black money against Satyendra Jain which are known to all. It is known to all that before holding the post of Delhi Cabinet Minister and after taking the oath, he gave a prominent position to his daughter and other relatives," he said. Pledging to remove corrupt people from the party, he said that he will go to all the higher authority and make the revelation about these things. However, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia flatly rejected the charges dubbing it 'absurd and baseless'. "There is nothing much that I can say about the baseless allegations that he has charged against us today. These things are not even worth answering, nobody is going to believe in it," said Sisodia in a press briefing. Earlier on Saturday, shortly after being removed from the post of state Water Minister, Mishra said he may have been axed for saying he would submit the names of those people involved in the tanker scam to the ACB. "It has nothing to do with the MCD polls, and till now, I have not received any official confirmation so far. But I met Arvind Kejriwal this morning, and I said that it has been a year since the report on the tanker scam was tabled and no action has been taken," Mishra told ANI. "I had told him that I will submit the names of the responsible persons to the ACB," Mishra added. However, sources close to Kejriwal claim that Mishra did not meet the Chief Minister and neither had he submitted any papers related to the tanker scam. (ANI)
