Hours after Delhi's Water Minister Kapil Mishra was sacked from his ministerial post, a fresh crisis arose in the AAP as founder member Kumar Vishwas vowed for "another movement inside and outside". I am yet to be informed about this (being dropped from the ministry). Some big names are involved in the scam and I will come out with the names tomorrow. "I want to assure the country and party volunteers that we will continue to raise our voice against corruption, within and without, irrespective of what the outcome is", he wrote in Hindi. Mishra tweeted that he was the only minister who has not come under the CBI scanner and has not been charged with corruption.

Sheila Dikshit, a three-time chief minister of Delhi, was stung by allegations of scams, particularly the Commonwealth Games scam.

More than two years after that victory speech, arrogance and corruption are two words that are now becoming synonymous with the Aam Aadmi Party and its chief Arvind Kejriwal.

In a communication, the Ministry of Home Affairs asked the Arvind Kejriwal-led party to explain certain funding from overseas after doubts that the party might have violated the provisions of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, officials said here.

Vidhi assisted the government in framing the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016. The court earlier on March 27 specified that Aadhaar card should not be made mandatory for availing governmental schemes.

Earlier on Saturday, shortly after being removed from the Delhi Cabinet, Mishra said he may have been axed for saying he would submit the names of those people involved in the tanker scam to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).

"It is now established that public money has been looted in Delhi Jal Board Tanker Scam by (Delhi Chief Minister) Arvind Kejriwal government", he alleged. But after seeing the cash I can not keep quiet. I urged him to seek an apology. "However, I am not sure if he has." he said.

Delhi chief Manoj Tiwari on Saturday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government should bring out the details of the quantum of funds it had received from foreign funding. As part of the formula, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia could take Kejriwal's place while the latter focuses on rebuilding the party and his image. I had said that I will be moving to the anti-corruption bureau and had also written a letter asking for an appointment.
