New Delhi: A day after ending his indefinite hunger strike, suspended Aam Aadmi Party leader Kapil Mishra will on Tuesday approach the Central Bureau of Investigation and Central Board of Direct Taxes to file corruption cases against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Meanwhile, Mishra this morning tweeted that the Delhi CM should have thought once before betraying the nation.

Soon after being discharged from the Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital yesterday where he was admitted after he had fainted at a press conference on Sunday, Mishra said he would go to the offices of the CBI and the CBDT on Tuesday.

"Doctors won't discharge until I start taking liquids. I have to go to CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) and CBDT (Central Board of Direct Taxes). Starting on liquids now," Mishra said in a tweet before ending his fast.

"Tomorrow (Tuesday) case of hawala, black money, money laundering and operating through shell companies will be filed in CBI and CBDT against Arvind Kejriwalji," he said in another tweet.

Attacking the Chief Minister, the sacked water minister said that the "foundation laid on lies was rattled. And hence those who spread lies were hiding inside their houses".

"The people with black money are unable to understand the request of truth," he said.

Today, Mishra tweeted:

Mishra had been on an indefinite hunger strike since May 10, demanding that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief must reveal the source of funding of the foreign trips of five AAP leaders -- Sanjay Singh, Ashish Khetan, Raghav Chadha, Satyendar Jain and Durgesh Pathak -- in the last two years.

On Sunday, Mishra accused the AAP of lying to the Election Commission (EC) about donations and laundering money through shell companies.

The AAP has dismissed his charges as a "conspiracy" by the BJP and accused the latter party of shooting from his shoulders.
