Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra alleged today that he witnessed his AAP colleague Satyendar Jain give party chief Arvind Kejriwal Rs 2 crore in cash.
Mishra also alleged that Jain informed him about "settling land deals worth Rs 50 crore for Kejriwal's relative". Soon after his removal, he hinted that he was removed because "I told Kejriwal that I would not tolerate delay in tanker scam report and would submit names of those who were involved in delaying the case in the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). I have handed over the details to Lt Governor Anil Baijal", Mishra said.
"I had told him that I will submit the names of the responsible persons to the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB)", he added.
"I am the only minister in the cabinet against whom there are no corruption charges", Mishra added.
Delhi's ruling party, AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) was questioned by the Narendra Modi government today, to provide details of overseas funding due to the following suspicion that it might have violated the provisions of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, an official 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.

I spoke to CF Thomas yesterday (May 3) and he pleaded ignorance of what transpired in Kottayam. But all this could be in jeopardy if there is another split in the party.
Jain, who holds the Health portfolio, was accused of nepotism charges in the appointments of his daughter Soumya Jain and Nikunj Agarwal, a relative of Kejriwal's wife, to government posts. "Chief Minister Kejriwal made a decision to bring in Kailash Gahlot in Kapil's place", the Deputy Chief Minister said.
Kapil Mishra's sacking highlighted the simmering tension between the leadership and Vishwas, which could snowball into a major crisis for the poll-battered AAP.
On the water tanker scam, Mishra said that he is ready to assist law enforcement agencies.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia later sought to explain the decision.
In a series of tweets on late on Saturday night, Mishra said Kejriwal was personally calling up AAP leaders and legislators, indicating that a "big conspiracy" was being planned before his press conference. Kapil Mishra made a lot of effort.
Following Kapil Mishra's expose, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came down heavily on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal, asserted that the development clearly proves that the Delhi government has only one agenda- power.
