Sacked AAP minister Kapil Mishra, who alleges corruption charges against Arvind Kejriwal dares the AAP chief to fight an election against him. “You are trying to remove me from the assembly; I challenge you to contest the elections against me, from any seat. Let’s fight the election from my Karawal Nagar seat or even your New Delhi seat. If you believe that people are with you, then I am ready to resign,” Mishra said in an open letter.
Mishra also tells Kejriwal that he is going to file an FIR against him on Tuesday. “I am writing this open letter to Arvind Kejriwal. I want to start by saying that I will be going to the CBI today. Kejriwal ji, you know the deals that I am not talking about. I know everything that is happening; I will tell the CBI everything,” said Mishra.
He also said sorry to Kejriwal in the letter and sought his blessings for his fight against corruption. “Today I am launching my crusade against the same Arvind Kejriwal, from whom I have learned to fight against corruption, to fight for truth,” he added.
“Since yesterday, I have received 211 complaints of corruption against the party and the government. Whatever happened behind the veils in the past two years is painful. You along with few of your colleagues have broken trust of people,” suspended leader claimed.

In the meantime, Delhi government has called for a one-day special session of the Assembly on Tuesday. The session is believed to be a tempestuous affair.
On Monday, Mishra said he had shared evidence linked to the tanker scam that dates back to Congress leader Sheila Dikshit’s tenure as Chief Minister with the ACB. “I told the ACB officials how Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal deliberately delayed the report and how public money was misused.”
The AAP row prompted BJP and Congress leaders to demand the ouster of Kejriwal, but the party backed its leader.
