AAP ousted minister Kapil Mishra to meet LG today

BJP demands AAP's audit on foreign funding

Meanwhile, the AAP cried foul over the Union Home Ministry's issuance of a notice to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led party asking it to provide information on overseas funding it has received. Mr. Kejriwal's final decision is awaited though.

I've been removed from the cabinet after I spoke against corruption. He added: "I was sacked from the party after speaking out against corruption". Mishra tweeted that he was the only minister who has not come under the CBI scanner and has not been charged with corruption.

He also tweeted that while he had not been officially told about his removal, he had "told CM that I can't tolerate delay in tanker scam report". In a tweet, he said he exposed former chief minister Sheila Dikshit in the tanker mafia scam and had not given any post to any of his relatives.

He also declared that the Aam Aadmi Party was his own, that he has been associated with the campaign since 2004 and was not going anywhere. Today, we will be organising a joint meeting at Arvind Kejriwal's house. "Mishra's allegations have proved our point", Tiwari said.

"After seeing the cash with my own eyes, there is no way I could be quiet".

Mishra has also rubbished rumors of him planning to join the BJP, saying he was the founder member of AAP and will remain with party. "Tomorrow, I will reveal the names, which include people close to Arvind", he said.

Arvind Kejriwal, who holds dual posts of Delhi chief minister and AAP chief, has spent the majority of the last two years sidelining the duties of CM and focussing his energies on state assembly elections in Punjab and Goa.

Mishra added that he informed Delhi's Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) about this transaction immediately. "The Chief Minister made a decision to bring in Kailash Gahlot in his place", he told reporters.

Soon after the move, Mishra claimed he would "expose" the involvement of certain AAP leaders in an alleged scam on Sunday.

The ruling Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi was today asked by the government to furnish details of overseas funding to it following suspicion that it might have violated the provisions of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, an official said.
