"I am not going to stay quite on this issue", he said while addressing the media here prior to meeting Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.
"I am the only minister in the cabinet who faces no corruption charges nor has the CBI initiated any inquiry against me", he said.
Mishra was axed from the Cabinet on Saturday, days after he sided with senior AAP leader Kumar Vishwas who has been at loggerheads with the party leadership. He added: "I was sacked from the party after speaking out against corruption". I am a founding member of the AAP. All the agencies at the Centre's disposal have been unleashed against Aam Aadmi Party, its government in Delhi and its ministers. "The Chief Minister chose to bring in Kailash Gahlot in his place", he told reporters. "The ground beneath their feet will shake", Mishra said. "Kailash Gehlot and Rajendra Gautam will be new ministers", Kejriwal immediately retweeted the post, signalling his intent. Whatever the party position, the accusation comes at a time when Kejriwal is struggling to keep Delhi's ruling party together, with several colleagues questioning his style of functioning.The AAP was born out of an anti-corruption movement five years ago.
"The kind of allegations that have been made against Kejriwal are unsubstantiated".
Arvind Kejriwal led Delhi government on Saturday removed Kapil Mishra as the tourism and water minister.
Is Ubisoft hinting at a Far Cry 3 remake or sequel?
It also linked to a picture of Far Cry 3 villain and fan favourite, Vaas, accompanied by his most famous line of dialogue. Since Ubisoft hasn't confirmed anything about this so far, the field is open to speculation.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said Mishra was replaced because there were complaints about inflated water bills of consumers and water was not reaching colonies where new lines had been laid.
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.
BJP leader R.P. Singh said that AAP, which made tall promises of working with transparency, should give the details of its foreign funds to the government, while adding that if the party has not done any wrong then it should not fear from any sort of investigation.
Recently, a rift developed within the party after Amanatulla Khan had alleged that Vishwas was planning a coup against Kejirwal. The charges made by Mishra are very serious and can not be dismissed.
