New Delhi, March 10, 2017-

Dear Mr. Kejriwal:

My name is Jai Nath Misra and I have lived in London, UK for over 60 years. I belong to AAP supporters group which you are quite familiar with.You may recall I came to Delhi in September 2013 about three months before the Delhi Vidhan Sabha election with a view to help AAP in its election campaign. During the campaign, I shared the ‘manch‘ with you on many occasions but never had the chance to have a one to one conversation. 

Jai Nath Misra

Over the last two and a half years that you have been CM of Delhi in my view, you have completely drifted away from the core principles of AAP as enunciated by you and others in the book ‘ Swaraj’.

Removing the list of donors from the AAP website was the last straw that broke the camels back and as a result, I now write to you from the platform of ‘Chanda bandh Satyagraha’ that we have initiated against the opaque financial practices of AAP, led by Dr. Munish Raizada.

Your latest ploy of making Delhi to look like London is yet another jumla or sound bite to fool Delhi electorate. I have lived in U.K. For over 60 years and I know that it has taken almost the same number of years for the development of London to arrive at its present state of a well-developed city.

Can I, therefore, ask you as to how you propose to change Delhi in next two and a half years to look like London? If you recall your previous statement where you said ‘ give me power and I will give you a chamchamati (shining) Delhi’. Two and a half years later with you as CM of Delhi. it remains a heap of garbage.

Don’t you think sir, that it is time for you to have a complete change in your approach to govern Delhi and go back to the real constitution of AAP that you put your signature on!

Waiting for your reply!

Yours Sincerely,

Jai Nath Misra

Member of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha led by Dr Munish Kumar Raizada against AAP (

Kejriwal exposed as a liar: BJP leader

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology

  • Arvind Kejriwal apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia
  • BJP leader says that this apology established himself
  • BJP also alleged that Kejriwal did nothing while state aced so many problems

A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised to former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia for alleging that he was involved in the drug trade, the BJP Delhi unit on Friday said he has exposed himself as a “liar”.

The BJP also alleged that he was doing nothing even while the people of the national capital were facing a number of issues due to sealing.

Addressing a press conference here, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari said: ” What we have been saying for long has been proved today. He is a liar. He has apologised to Majithia for making false allegations against him.”

“He is on his way to apologise to (Union Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley ji and (Union Transport Minister) Nitin Gadkari ji for making false allegations,” the BJP leader said. Kejriwal is facing defamation cases in court for levelling allegations against Jaitley and Gadkari.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Thursday apologised to the Shiromani Akali Dal leader in Punjab for making allegations of involvement in the drug trade, following which the latter said that he will withdraw a defamation suit filed in an Amristar court.

Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, accused Kejriwal of misleading the people over the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

BJP MLA Vijender Gupta accused the AAP chief of only rendering “lip service” on the sealing drive and urged the Chief Minister to hold an all-party meeting with the Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring committee overseeing the drive.

“Since December last, Kejriwal is only doing lip service on the issue of sealing drive. He has done nothing to stop it,” Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said.

He said that though Lt Governor Anil Baijal cleared the file for notifying 351 roads in the capital on February 8, the matter is still pending. “Why hasn’t he (Kejriwal) notified the 351 roads in the last 45 days?” Gupta asked.

BJP leaders are calling this apology a gimmick.

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology. Gupta warned the Monitoring Committee members not to act outside the law and said: “If the monitoring committee acts against law, then the BJP will oppose it.”

“We are going to inform the three municipal corporations of Delhi not to follow the commands of the Monitoring Committee if it goes against the law,” he said. “The MCDs should approach the court and also make Kejriwal a party,” the BJP leader added. IANS
