New Delhi: As the Aam Aadmi Party blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party for the charges hurled by Kapil Mishra against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the mother of the sacked Delhi minister has advised her son to join the BJP.
Dr Annapurna Mishra, the first mayor of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation, has described Kejriwal's movement against corruption as a farce.
She added that by sacking her son Kapil Mishra, Kejriwal has proved what kind of a person he is.
Amar Ujala has further quoted Dr Mishra, who was a well-known face in Delhi BJP, as advising her son to join the Bharatiya Janata Party.
She also added that Kapil Mishra has the higher stature than Kejriwal's as there is no corruption allegation against the sacked water minister.
However, Kapil Mishra later said that he was the founder member of the AAP and no one can expel him from the party. He insisted on staying in the party.
Today, Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh told the media that the kind of allegations Mishra had made it clear that he was being used to harass Kejriwal and other ministers in the Delhi government.
"Mishra is now speaking the language of the BJP and Congress. He is saying the same thing the two parties had been saying for months. This makes it clear who is behind all this," Sanjay Singh said.
A day after he was sacked, Mishra alleged that he saw Kejriwal accept Rs 2 crore from Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
Mocking the claim, Sanjay Singh wondered if Kejriwal invited Mishra to witness the so-called bribe-taking or to count the currency notes.
