New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that Aam Aadmi Party MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj will address the Delhi Assembly during a special session.

It was expected that Kejriwal would speak for the first time after being accused by sacked Minister Kapil Mishra of taking Rs 2 crore cash from a cabinet colleague, a charge denied by the AAP.

However, Kejriwal, on Twitter, said Bhardwaj will address the session and reveal details of a big conspiracy going on in the country.

The session is scheduled to begin at 2 pm and lots of fireworks are expected on the floor of the 70-member House.

The BJP is expected to corner the ruling AAP during the one-day session over Mishra`s charges. The AAP is also likely to raise the issue of alleged EVM manipulations in Delhi civic body polls.

Kejriwal has not spoken about the charges made by Mishra. But on Monday night he tweeted that truth will prevail.

Mishra has questioned Kejriwal`s integrity and accused him of taking Rs 2 crore in cash from Health Minister Satyendar Jain, of shielding people linked to a 2012 water tanker scam and being party to a land deal that benefited his relative.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has denied the charges.

Jain, rejecting Mishra`s allegations, said on Monday that "no deal took place" between him and Kejriwal and the sacked Minister was just making an "attempt to defame the AAP".

"He (Mishra) says Kejriwal`s brother-in-law was to get the favour from a deal. It is shameful and disgusting. The person (brother-in-law) who has died, he is making allegation about a man who is dead," Jain said.

Mishra was on Monday night suspended from the party`s primary membership.
