Kapil Mishra seeks 'lie detector test' for himself, Kejriwal and Jain
"I am going to ACB office to give detailed evidence on the tanker scandal. I want Arvind Kejriwal, Satyendra Jain and I to undergo a lie-detector test," Mishra said.
New Delhi: Escalating the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) political drama, MLA Kapil Mishra , who was sacked from the state cabinet, has demanded a lie-detector test for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, state Health minister Satyendra Jain and himself, in order to vindicate his claims.
"I am going to ACB office to give detailed evidence on the tanker scandal. I want Arvind Kejriwal, Satyendra Jain and I to undergo a lie-detector test," Mishra told the media here.
Asserting that nobody would accept allegations against the Delhi Chief Minister, Mishra said that he has sought more time from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to prove the charges.
Earlier on Sunday night, the AAP MLA said that he would give the names of two party leaders to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in connection with the Tanker Scam.
Triggering a row, Mishra yesterday made a shocking revelation, alleging that he "saw" Jain giving Rs. 2 crore to Kejriwal.
"Day before yesterday, I saw Satyendra Jain giving Rs. 2 crore to Arvind Kejriwal and I wasn't able to sleep the entire night," he said in a press briefing.
Mishra also claimed that he urged the Chief Minister to disclose as to from where he got the money.
"There are several allegations on money laundering and black money against Satyendra Jain which are known to all. It is known to all that before holding the post of Delhi Cabinet Minister and after taking the oath, he gave a prominent position to his daughter and other relatives," he 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.
However, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia flatly rejected the charges dubbing it 'absurd and baseless'.
"There is nothing much that I can say about the baseless allegations that he has charged against us today. These things are not even worth answering, nobody is going to believe in it," said Sisodia in a press briefing. (With ANI inputs)
