Aam Aadmi Party MLA Kapil Mishra, who was sacked form the state cabinet, earlier in the day submitted the documents related to the tanker scandal to the ACB, while saying that he also apprised the agency about the misuse of the state government's money.
Meanwhile, an official close to the Delhi minister Satyendar Jain said that Jain will file a defamation suit against sacked party member Kapil Mishra for leveling "baseless" allegations of corruption.
The former water minister of Delhi also dismissed the Aam Aadmi Party's accusation that he was a "colluding with the Bharatiya Janata Party".
Sacked AAP minister Kapil Mishra announced he had shared evidence of Delhi's water tanker scam with the ACB.
The party trashed all the allegations levelled by the former water minister and accused him of being hand in glove with BJP and the central government.
Refuting allegations of being a BJP agent, Mishra said he had been the most vociferous critic of the BJP and PM Narendra Modi. Sanjay Singh said it was Mishra who had repeatedly said that Kejriwal "had nothing to do with the scam" and the ACB was under pressure to "frame him by any possible means".
"If the L-G does not give the sanction to prosecute Mr. Kejriwal and his Ministers, I will move court as a private citizen", said Mr. Maken.
At the press conference, he also issued an email id - firstname.lastname@example.org - where people can complain of alleged corruption in the AAP. "I saw with my own eyes Satyendar Jain giving Rs 2 crore in cash to Arvind Kejriwal at his residence".
"They must say what was done with the money", Mr Mishra said at the promised tell-all meeting at the Mahatma Gandhi memorial in Rajghat. "And today, he is going to that ACB only which shows he speaking the language of the BJP", Singh told ANI.
"Tomorrow I have got an appointment with CBI at 11.30 am, and I will officially lodge an FIR and be present as a witness", Mishra said. He also took a jibe at BJP for trusting Mishra's claims.
Hitting out at Mishra over the allegations of corruption, Singh produced a letter and claimed it was written by Mishra to ACB last September, saying that the anti-graft body was trying to implicate Kejriwal in the tanker scam even though his name was not mentioned in the evidence.
The Congress leader said that if Baijal failed to accord sanction for prosecution, "we will then feel they (Centre and Baijal) are helping them". According to Mishra, Kejriwal said, "These things happen in politics and it will be revealed later".
