‘Absurd, without facts’: AAP refutes Kapil Mishra’s charges; BJP demands Kejriwal’s resignation
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday refuted allegations levelled by sacked Delhi Water Minister and party leader Kapil Mishra, saying they were not worth responding to.
Speaking to the media, deputy CM Manish Sisodia said, “His allegations are not even worth responding to, they are so absurd and without any facts.”
Mishra has alleged that he saw Health Minister Satyendra Jain pay Rs 2 crore to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The sacked minister also alleged that Jain had told him that he settled land deals worth Rs 50 crore for Kejriwal’s relative.
Later, Mishra also tweeted that his words would be proved right when Satyendra Jain lands in jail.

Meanwhile, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded Kejriwal’s resignation.
