Former AAP minister Kapil Mishra was roughed up today in the Delhi Assembly by fellow AAP MLAs when he tried to raise slogans against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Mishra revealed that Kejriwal had ordered the assault as Mishra had dared the former to come out clean on the allegations levelled against him.
Mishra, while talking to reporters outside the Assembly, said that AAP MLAs punched him in the chest. He added, “I had written a letter to the Speaker on Kejriwal's corruption and had asked to be allowed to speak during the Assembly session. I had also called for a special session at the Ramlila Maidan but I was attacked.”
“I was thrashed, some of them kicked me on the chest. But, I am not afraid of them. Kejriwal and Satyendra Jain are corrupt and have been exposed. My fight against these corrupt leaders will continue,” Mishra said.
Mishra, who was the former Water Supply Minister, was sacked after he accused Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleague Satyendra Jain of corruption (with evidence). Mishra had even said he saw Kejriwal receiving Rs 2 crore unaccounted money from Jain.
