“Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP is deeply mired in corruption, which is evident from vanishing of more than Rs 16 crore from the donations received from the common man,” he alleged.

Sehrawat, who represents Bijwasan, was suspended from the AAP for anti-party activities in September.

The AAP refused to comment on Sehrawat’s allegations, saying that his allegations were not worthy of any reaction.
