Kapil Mishra to Sit on Hunger Strike, Calls it Satyagraha


Suspended Aam Aadmi Party leader Kapil Mishra will sit on a hunger strike from today. Mishra, who had alleged that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took Rs 2 crore "illegal cash" from Health Minister Satyendar Jain, is seeking the details of foreign tours by Cabinet ministers and called his strike a "Satyagraha". He claimed that he received a death threat from an international number and also got abusive messages.

"Today, I will be starting my hunger strike. Please give all the details of your cabinet ministers' foreign tours. I will only drink, I will not eat any thing. Where was the money spend? You were the one who said that we don’t have money to fight elections, then where did the funding come from? How did they all go on on foreign tours? They took foreign tours only because Arvind Kejriwal told them to. I got a call from an international number, where the person threatened to kill me. I have also received a lot of abuse through WhatsApp messages," says Kapil Mishra. The former Delhi water minister added, "This is not a Hunger Strike. This is Satyagrah."
