Delhi: Kapil Mishra on Monday ended his fast and said that he would go to the CBI tomorrow to submit evidences of corruption against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Yesterday, sacked AAP minister had fainted at a press conference after charging Kejriwal with financial "irregularities".

Mishra was taken to the RML hospital here from his residence in Civil Lines, where he had been on a hunger strike for the last five days, demanding that the Aam Aadmi Party release details of foreign tours undertaken by five leaders.

The former Water Resources and Tourism Minister in the Kejriwal government, before taking ill, had alleged that the party received funds worth "crores of rupees" from several "shell" companies.

"All this happened with the knowledge of Arvind Kejriwal as these shell companies deposited money in the AAP bank account on the same day and time in January 2014," Mishra had said, brandishing documents, as per PTI.

Mishra alleged that the AAP had over Rs 45 crore in its account in 2013-2014, but in its declaration to the poll panel it showed only Rs 9 crore, thereby concealing around Rs 36 crore.

"Three years later, when the EC sent a notice to the party asking for details of the declared Rs 9 crore, the party clarified they had Rs 30 crore," Mishra had said.

"Out of this Rs 30 crore, the party did not reveal the details of Rs 15 crore to the EC," he claimed.

He alleged that during 2014-15, the party had around Rs 65 crore in its account but disclosed only Rs 32 crore whereas the fund details on AAP website showed Rs 27 crore.

"I have all the documents pertaining to the party's financial transactions which include 461 bogus entries in their account books," Mishra alleged.

He demanded Kejriwal's resignation, and immediately after that had lost consciousness.

Meanwhile, AAP had categorically denied the allegations and had said that it had followed rules in maintaining its books.

"It is a conspiracy to de-recognise and de-register the AAP and the BJP is totally involved. What Kapil Mishra says, the BJP repeats it. What the BJP says, Kapil Mishra repeats," AAP leader Sanjay Singh had said, as per IANS.

He alleged that the central government and the BJP were out to crush the AAP and defame Kejriwal. 

"I ask BJP leaders to stop shooting from Mishra's shoulder," he said.

Mishra, who was first sacked as Delhi Water Minister on May 6 and later suspended from the party membership, began his indefinite protest fast on Wednesday, questioning who funded these foreign visits.

Earlier, he claimed to have seen Kejriwal accept Rs 2 crore in cash from Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
