AAP junket row: Kapil Mishra begins 'Satyagraha'
Kapil said, "I am sitting on a 'Satyagraha' till I get a clarification on details of international travel expenses of some senior AAP leaders. It is not a dharna but a satyagraha."
New Delhi: Suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Kapil Mishra on Wednesday began his hunger strike , and asserted that he would not end his agitation until the party leaders disclose details of the funding for their foreign tours.
"I am sitting on a 'Satyagraha' till I get a clarification on details of international travel expenses of some senior AAP leaders. It is not a dharna but a satyagraha. I would like to send out a message to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to put out the details of the foreign tours of his five AAP leaders-Satyendra Jain, Ashish Khetan, Raghav Chaddha, Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak in public domain," Mishra told the media here.
Dramatically stating that his 'death' won't affect Kejriwal in any matter, he nevertheless pressed on his demand for a clarification and detailed explanation from the AAP supremo.
"I know if I will die, it won't affect you (Kejriwal). This matter is concerned with the entire nation. You have always said that you don't have money to even contest election, then from where did they get the money for foreign tours. It will hardly take five minutes to disclose these details. I am waiting for you response," he added.
He further alleged that he has been getting life threats from an international number. (ANI)
