'Truth will triumph': Delhi CM Kejriwal on graft charges by sacked minister Kapil Mishra

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal has finally broken his silence on graft charges levelled by sacked minister Kapil Mishra.

In a tweet, Kejriwal said, “Truth will triumph, its beginning will be made during tomorrow's special session of the Delhi Assembly.”

The one-day special session of the Delhi Assembly scheduled tomorrow is expected to be a stormy affair as the opposition BJP plans to come down hard on the  government over Mishra's graft charges against Kejriwal. 

Kejriwal’s reaction comes immediately after the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) chaired by Kejriwal suspended Mishra from party’s primary membership.

"Mishra has been suspended from the party's primary membership," a source present in the meeting said.

Tomorrow, in the Assembly, the ruling AAP will also seek to corner the BJP and its government at the Centre over alleged EVM manipulation. 

AAP MLAs are also expected to raise the recent CBI raid at the Delhi Secretariat and issuance of a notice to the AAP by the Centre to furnish details of its overseas funding during the session. 

On its part, the BJP, whose strength of MLAs has been increased from three to four in the 70-member Assembly after it won the Rajouri Garden by-poll last month, will try to corner the AAP government on governance and other issues.

Yesterday, Mishra had levelled allegations that Kejriwal had taken Rs 2 crore in cash from Delhi minister Satyendar Jain. Mishra was removed from the post of water minister on May 6. 

Earlier today, Mishra had dared the party to sack him even as he fired a fresh salvo at Kejriwal, alleging that a Rs 50 crore deal was made for the AAP chief's brother-in-law.

He also submitted documents to the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) against Kejriwal in connection with the water tanker scam and said he has sought an appointment with the CBI tomorrow to register a complaint.
