I have been sacked after I spoke out.

Reacting to his removal from the post, he told media: "I was not informed of the decision and as per my knowledge, it was taken unilaterally by Kejriwal".

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today outrightly rejected the sacked Delhi Minister Kapil Mishra's allegation of corruption against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as "baseless" and said the charge "does not merit any response".

"I have witnessed HIM taking illegal cash. have shared all details with Lt. Gov", said Mishra in a tweet after meeting LG Anil Baijal.

Immediately after the press conference+, Mishra tweeted saying "I saw it day before yesterday and yesterday morning raised my voice against it openly. I can not keep quiet anymore". He also assured volunteers that the party will not shy away from course correction whenever required. I even had a discussion about this with Arvind Kejriwal, but he simply asked me to trust him.

But in the midst of all this, come criminal charges against 18 fraternity members and the fraternity, itself for a hazing death. Piazza's father, Jim Piazza, blamed a "flagrant disregard" for the law and said the death "didn't have to happen".

On whether the BJP should welcome Mishra in the party, Tiwari said that he was with anyone against corruption. He said he had also told the chief minister that he would submit the names of those who were involved in the delay to the ACB.

Earlier on Saturday Mishra had said that he will come out with a massive tanker scam expose before the public on Sunday at 11 am. "I exposed Shiela's (Dixit) corruption", Mishra said in a tweet. Some big names are involved in the scam and I will come out with the names tomorrow.

He also denied that he was ousted for supporting AAP leader Kumar Vishwas.

I'm the only minister, who doesn't have any CBI inquiry against me, never favoured any daughter or relative. "Amanatullah khan has been suspended from the party and a committee has been formed to look into the allegations levelled by him".

Mishra was believed to be close to Vishwas. He told a news agency, "Water management was not working fine". The charges made by Mishra are very serious and can not be dismissed. "Kailash Gehlot and Rajendra Gautam will be New Ministers", journalist Vikrant Yadav said in a tweet. The political impact of today's axing of a key associate and minister is yet to unravel.
