Former Delhi Cabinet Minister Kapil Mishra on 8 May described Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as a 'power drunk' individual indulging in huge acts of corruption for his family with the help of his Cabinet colleagues.

"I personally informed Sanjay Singh about the Chhatarpur seven acre farm house deal and about the PWD Rs. 10 core fake bill scam, Satyendra Jain told me. It was done for Kejriwal's brother in law," Mishra said.

"The Arvind Kejriwal we have worshipped and prayed for is not the same man today. The post has changed him. I want to ask him one thing, will he leave the post after Satyendra Jain goes to jail?" he asked.

Mishra also launched a scathing attack on the AAP leadership for making allegations that he was colluding with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"Every AAP leader knows that if someone who is the staunchest critics of the BJP, who has publicly criticised their policies on Kashmir and Pathankot incident and MCD corruption, it is none other than Kapil Mishra," he added.

"I challenge them to collect at least one evidence against me that I am being hand in gloves with the BJP," he added.

Mishra also dared the AAP leadership to expel him from the party.

"I will never leave the AAP, they have convened a PAC meeting today. Try removing me from the party. I will never allow those people, who are holding discussions behind closed doors, to kick me out of the party," he said.

He said he would go to the Central Bureau of Investigation's office to lodge an FIR on the tanker scam and be present as a witness.

"Tomorrow I have got an appointment with the CBI at 11.30 a.m. I will officially lodge an FIR and be present as a witness," he added.

Mishra also alleged that his number is being shared on social media platforms and that he was getting death threats from people close to Kejriwal.

"On Twitter and Facebook my number is being shared, I am getting death threats from those who are close to Kejrwal," he said.

Earlier, Mishra submitted documents related to the tanker scam to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), while saying that he also apprised the agency about the misuse of the state government's money.

"I informed the ACB about the misuse of government money by the AAP. I also informed that the state government was trying to shield a corrupt Sheila Dikshit. I have also given information of the tanker scam to the ACB," he said after leaving the ACB office.

Later ACB chief M.K. Meena assured of action based on his statement.

"We will record the statement of Kapil Mishra and the law will take its own course," he said.
