The BJP on Sunday demanded Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's resignation after sacked Minister Kapil Mishra alleged he took Rs2 crore in cash from Health Minister Satyendar Jain.

"Jain will file a defamation case against him (Mishra) for making baseless allegations of corruption", the official said.

The AAP-government in its fact-finding committee report to then Delhi Lieutenant-Governor, Najeeb Jung in August 2015, had suggested that a First Information Report (FIR) be filed against Dikshit and the ACB or the CBI should probe the matter.

Mishra has alleged that Kejriwal took Rs 2 crore bribe in cash in front of him from AAP minister Satyendra Jain accused by CBI of money laundering. Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, has reacted to the whole situation and said: "The allegations against Kejriwal are unsubstantiated". Senior party leader Sanjay Singh said, "Kapil Mishra is accusing the CM just because he was stripped of his Cabinet rank after other ministers complained about the inefficiency of the minister in water management (sic)".

The AAP leader said that at a time when the country was facing serious internal and external security threats, the only priority for the BJP and the central government was to finish off the AAP. "I wasn't present at CM's residence on May 5 (Friday) and I can prove it in many ways", Jain said. "Apologise. As I hold a constitutional post, I will have to report it to the ACB (anti-corruption branch)". "Kejriwal has no moral right to continue as chief minister in the wake of the allegations by Mishra".

He questioned why Mishra was speaking only after he was removed as a minister. "Being a PWD minister, he also fudged bills up to Rs. 10 crore in the department to benefit Kejriwal's relative", he alleged.

Responding to a poser on Mishra's fresh allegations on Kejriwal in regard to his brother-in-law, Jain said he should at least spare those who are dead. I have named people within the party.

"Also, I told them how Kejriwal along with his two men affected the tanker scam probe". I know Arvind for 12 years and I can not imagine him taking a bribe, ' Vishwas said after meeting Kejriwal.

An inquiry into the tanker scam set up by the AAP government a year ago put the size of the scam at Rs. 400 crore and accused former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit of creating artificial water scarcity to benefit the "tanker mafia".
