Taking on sacked Aam Aadmi Party minister Kapil Mishra, a Delhi-based businessman claimed on Thursday that he had donated Rs 2 crore to the Arvind Kejriwal-led party, instead of it being paid by a shell company, as Mr Mishra had alleged.

Keeping his promise to provide more evidence against chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, sacked cabinet minister Kapil Mishra today addressed yet another media conference and made some new allegations.

Mishra dropped another bombshell on friend-turned-foe Kejriwal claiming that the party received money through "hawala network".

Mishra has also alleged that for three continuous years, black money was converted into white and spent on foreign trips of AAP leaders. Sharma claimed he had donated the money through a demand draft on March 31, 2014.

Trump, during a news conference later Thursday with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, again attacked the investigation. Bush and held the job for the entire Obama administration, didn't immediately embrace the idea of a special counsel.

In his presentation, Mishra displayed four letters by the companies that he claimed had made the donations to the AAP.

Kapil Mishra further asked 'how could a loan defaulter Mukesh Kumar donate Rs 2 crore to AAP.

Mishra showed the letterheads of the four companies - which Mukesh had claimed to be owned by him - of which just two had the signature of Mukesh Kumar. Interestingly, one of them had given the donation of Rs 50 lakh on April 22, 2017, a day before the MCD polls.

Speaking to a news channel, the man admitted that he had donated Rs 2 crore in the form of demand drafts of Rs 50 lakh each in 2014. Notably, Tandon has also been alleged to have links with the AgustaWestland scam and controversial arms dealer Abhishek Verma. He had also claimed that several shell companies had given money to AAP and the party knew it.Asked what took him so long to claim that he donated the money, Mr Sharma said, "I was exhausted of the allegations that it was given by shell companies". Mishra challenged Kejriwal to inform the Income tax department that the donation amount received by AAP was from Mukesh Kumar.
