AAP will improve organisational structure: Sanjay Singh

AAP averts crisis, Kumar Vishwas made Rajasthan chief, Amanatullah Khan suspended

In a press conference at Raj Ghat, Mishra also claimed that Jain had settled land deals worth Rs 50 crore for Kejriwal's relative. "But I met Arvind Kejriwal this morning, and I said that it has been a year since the report on the tanker scam was tabled and no action has been taken", Mishra told ANI.

Jain, who holds the Health portfolio, was accused of nepotism by opposition in the appointments of his daughter Soumya Jain and Nikunj Agarwal, a relative of Kejriwal's wife, to government posts. What is this for?' He (Kejriwal) refused to answer. He further said that Kejriwal had said, "such things happen in politics". "I exposed Shiela's (Dixit) corruption", Mishra said in a tweet.

Mishra said he "had to" tell Delhi's Anti Corruption Bureau about this immediately. "I can not keep quiet anymore". It doesn't matter even if I have been removed from the post. "I couldn't take this lying down", Mishra said.

Soon after the move, Mishra claimed he would "expose" the involvement of certain AAP leaders in an alleged scam on Sunday.

All AAP legislators including Somnath Bharti, Alka Lamba and Bhavna Gaur, who had backed Vishwas, were also accommodated in the Library Committee, not considered as prestigious with the panel having little work to do. "There is no CBI inquiry against me". Within one month of becoming minister, I made a report against Sheila Dikshit. In order to pacify him, Kejriwal made Vishwas in-charge of Rajasthan and also sacked AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan from the PAC, who had alleged that Vishwas was dancing to the tunes of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Gautam will be a Dalit face in the Cabinet, while Gahlot gets representation from outer Delhi.

With Mishra's removal from Delhi's cabinet and Vishwas' mood, it is expected that the AAP's internal fight is going to be intensify.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had told media that: "Kapil Mishra worked hard but water management was not up to the mark". So Chief Minister Kejriwal chose to bring in Kailash Gahlot in Kapil's place. The charges made by Mishra are very serious and can not be dismissed.

Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra tweeted that he had "witnessed him (Kejriwal) taking illegal cash" and had conveyed all details to Delhi LG Anil Baijal.
