Kapil Mishra warns of ‘new drama’ by AAP for distraction



Kapil Mishra

New Delhi, May 13, 2017: On the fourth day of his hunger strike, sacked minister Kapil Mishra today warned that the AAP will resort to “new drama” to distract attention from the “foreign trips controversy”.

“Fourth day of satyagraha – What new drama will be done to distract attention from the question of foreign trips,” Mishra asked in a tweet.

He said: “Thief is demanding to hand over all the evidences to him. Then he would prove himself innocent by becoming a judge, a lawyer and a witness.”

Mishra also tweeted a photo of Mahabharata for Arvind Kejriwal and said: “For all your tricks and traps of lies, I have only this for you in response.”

The scene of Mahabharata shows Lord Krishna rushing towards Bhishma with a chariot wheel (as Arjuna tries to stop him), despite promising that he would not take up arms in the Kurukshetra War.

Bhishma had brought Krishna to this state of rage in keeping with his (Bhishma’s) promise that he would kill in numbers so huge and innumerable that Krishna would lose his cool and take up arms.

Krishna’s action came as his protege Arjun did not put up a very active resistance (against the Kauravas) leading to huge casualties.

The Mahabharata is an epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes. It casts the good against the evil in a tale full of tricks, traps, betrayals on one side and faith, honesty and brotherhood on the other.

The suspended Aam Aadmi Party leader has been on hunger strike since Wednesday at his official residence, demanding that Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal reveal the source of funding of the foreign trips of five AAP leaders – Sanjay Singh, Ashish Khetan, Satyendar Jain, Raghav Chadhha and Durgesh Pathak – in the last two years.

Mishra was removed as a Delhi minister and later suspended from the AAP after he levelled corruption charges against Kejriwal.

There was only a work relation between my son Amrish’s company and Cambridge Analytics , there is no financial transaction or shareholding, everything is open to probe. JDU also has no links with this, neither did they promote us in 2010 polls”, he added.

KC Tyagi’s son Amrish Tyagi owns Ovelina Business Intelligence (OBI), which was Cambridge Analytica’s associate in the country.

OBI in association with CA parent company SCL Group had formed a firm, SCL India.

Meanwhile hitting out at Janata Dal (United), RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, said the name of the company coming out in this matter is in the BJP client list, run by KC Tyagi’s son.

“JD(U) General Secretary’s son is involved and JD(U) is saying that we do not know anything”, he further asserted.

New Delhi, March 22: The Congress will move a Privilege Motion against EAM Sushma Swaraj for misleading the kin of the Indians killed in Iraq by the Islamic State.

Speaking to media, Senior Congress leader Ambika Soni said: “We are going to bring a Privilege Motion against the External Affairs Minister for misleading the families of the 39 Indians as well as the House”.

EAM on Tuesday confirmed the death of missing 39 Indians who were abducted by ISIS in June 2014.

Former MoS for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor, too, had cornered the ruling government for giving false hope to the families of the hostages all these years.

“Giving falsehood to people is actually cruel and suggests a certain level of lack transparency on part of the government, Tharoor asserted.

Echoing on similar views, another Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday asked the Central and State governments to provide financial assistance to the families of deceased and job opportunities in government sector.

The thirty-nine persons, most of them hailed from Punjab, were working on projects near Mosul, when they were abducted during their evacuation.
