Hours after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) dismissed his allegations against Arvind Kejriwal as "baseless", former minister Kapil Mishra on Sunday said he would share all "evidence", including that against two close aides of the Chief Minister, with the Anti-Corruption Branch on Monday. "But day before yesterday, I saw Satyender Jain giving Rs 2 crore to Arvind Kejriwal at his home".
The Congress on Monday wrote to Delhi Lt. Governor Anil Baijal to demand the prosecution of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers on the basis of the Shunglu committee report.
"There are several allegations of money laundering and black money against Satyendra Jain which are known to all. When I asked Kejriwal, he said such things happen in politics, and it will be revealed later", said Mr Mishra, who was accompanied by his wife at the Rajghat briefing. AAP has now said that Kejriwal will not resign.
"Also, I told them how Kejriwal along with his two men affected the tanker scam probe". Maybe you have made a mistake.
Mishra also claimed that he urged the Chief Minister to disclose where he got the money from.
The AAP denied the charges, with deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia saying the "absurd" allegations did not merit a response. They have no head nor feet.

President Trump calls North Korean leader a 'pretty smart cookie'
Trump raised eyebrows in South Korea last week when he said would make Seoul pay $1 billion for the missile defense system. North Korea is seeking to develop a long-range missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland with a nuclear warhead.
Mishra said, "We all trusted Arvind Kejriwal that he can not indulge in corruption, but whoever is the person, I will not keep mum when it comes to corruption".
The crisis within AAP deepened on Sunday after Mishra, who was sacked as a minister on Saturday, levelled corruption allegations against Kejriwal that could potentially damage the party which is already in the midst of an internal rift after subsequent losses in recently concluded elections. He had also spoken against the AAP's stand against electronic voting machines. He is only reacting because he was sacked from the party. "I will neither quit the party nor can anyone ask me to go".
According to Mishra, Jain had settled the land deal for a 60-acre plot for just Rs 50 crore in south Delhi's Chattarpur. Youth Congress workers were water-cannoned when the tried to lay siege to the chief minister's bungalow. He told reporters that everyone in the party felt there are 4-5 corrupt people around Kejriwal but believed the AAP chief would correct everything.
Even his former colleague Yogendra Yadav, now head of Swarajya Party, appeared to be on Kejriwal's side.
Anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare said the developments were painful. After having seen Jain hand over such a big amount to him, I had to come out. From our movement he became CM.
Mishra had earlier in the day made a shocking revelation, alleging that he "saw" Jain gave Rs. 2 crore to Kejriwal. "I am very sad", he told reporters in Maharashtra.
