"It is not worth responding to", Sisodia said.When asked why he was levelling the allegations only after he was removed as the minister, Mishra said for two years, both Kejriwal and deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said good things but "suddenly now the water condition has become bad".

The officials made it clear that it was not a show-cause notice and that a decision on it would be taken only after the AAP submits its reply.

Later, in a tweet, he wondered if his ouster was linked to the exposure on the tanker scam which he was scheduled to make on Sunday.

If my party has become corrupt, then I will have to clean it.

Later in the evening, Mr Mishra reacted saying he was the only minister without a corruption charge and that there was no CBI inquiry against him.

"These are serious allegations against a Chief Minister". Party's performance in both states despite intensive campaigning and planning by party chief Kejriwal was a severe blow to AAP's ambitions of going nationwide. Today, we will be organising a joint meeting at Arvind Kejriwal's house.

Eman underwent bariatric surgery in March in which doctors reduced her stomach size by two-third, so as to reduce her food intake. Lakdawala had said earlier that Eman's weight was now down to 170 kg from 498 kg when she arrived here in February.


Mishra after being sacked taking a jibe at Kejriwal and his colleagues such as Satyendar Jain, said he did not favour his relatives or daughter. "Tomorrow, I will reveal the names, which include people close to Arvind", he said. But after seeing the cash I can not keep quiet.

AAP's NRI Overseas Team, which is the biggest source of funding for the party, has also expressed unhappiness over the way decisions are made within party with regards to Punjab.

Donations to the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP have been questioned since 2013 when a breakaway volunteer group AVAM (AAP Volunteer Action Manch) accused the party of receiving Rs 2 crore through four "dubious" donor companies ahead of the Assembly election.

"I am the only minister in the cabinet against whom there are no corruption charges", Mishra added.

He said he would expose the names involved in the tanker scam on Sunday. "The Chief Minister chose to bring in Kailash Gahlot in his place", he told reporters.

Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal managed to keep the party together on Wednesday by striking a compromise with dissident leader Kumar Vishwas. I had said that I will be moving to the anti-corruption bureau and had also written a letter asking for an appointment.
