BJP demands Kejriwal's resignation; AAP refutes corruption allegations
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday sought resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after the sacked minister Kapil Mishra alleged him of taking Rs 2 crore bribe from Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
"Kejriwal has no moral right to hold the post of Chief Minister. He must resign immediately," BJP Delhi unit chief Manoj Tiwari said.
"I have said a number of times that Kejriwal is directly involved in corruption. Mishra's allegations have proved our point," Tiwari said.
The BJP leader said a case must be filed on the basis of the allegations made by Mishra, who was sacked from the Delhi government on Saturday night.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), however, said that the charges hurled by Mishra against Arvind Kejriwal are 'baseless' and 'unbelievable'.
Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, "The kind of allegations that have been made against Kejriwal are unsubstantiated. No one will believe them," adding, "There is no substance in this allegation."
