" Satyendra Jain himself has accepted in front of me that he has made a deal of Rs. 50 crore for a relative of Arvind Kejriwal". "He has made many wild allegations".

In a communication, the Ministry of Home Affairs asked the Arvind Kejriwal-led party to explain certain funding from overseas after doubts that the party might have violated the provisions of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, officials said here. "And now today the kind of allegations (he's making), what can I say", Sisodia told reporters. He joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in mid 2014. "Nobody will believe it".

When Kapil Mishra posted a letter on Twitter addressed to Delhi ACB Chief M.K. Meena asking him why former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit has not been questioned, Vishwas re-tweeted Mishra's tweet and said: "No compromise on corruption".

"At 11:30 am at Rajghat - Will tell the country what I told Kejriwal ji", he wrote on his twitter account. "I had this trust in him since two years". "I could have been sacked before too".

All AAP legislators including Somnath Bharti, Alka Lamba and Bhavna Gaur, who had backed Vishwas, were also accommodated in the Library Committee, not considered as prestigious with the panel having little work to do. There were no talks of me being sacked.

On being asked, the CM evaded answering where the money came from and said few things in politics can not be explained, the sacked MLA alleged. "Was Kejriwal lying to the public of Delhi since 2015?" When I wanted to meet the anti-corruption bureau, everyone knows what had happened. "Tomorrow, I will reveal the names, which include people close to Arvind", he said. Reacting to the claims, Congress leader Ajay Maken took to Twitter demanding answers.

"Day before yesterday (Friday) I saw Jain handing over Rs 2 crore in cash to Kejriwal at his residence". This is a serious charge! Mishra was sacked on Saturday. "I met Kejriwal this morning and had a detailed discussion about the water tanker scam". The party had momentarily averted a crisis last week as it reached a compromise with Kumar Vishwas who had hinted that he may quit the party and appointed him as party's Rajasthan convener. And it was after that meeting that I heard about my removal from the cabinet.

"It has nothing to do with the MCD polls, and till now, I have not received any official confirmation so far. Why is this happening?" he told The Indian Express.
