Mishra Begins Hunger Strike, Demands Details of Travel Funding

Earlier on March 9, the AAP legislator had written an open letter to his former "guru" Kejriwal to seek his blessings before filing the complaint against him.

Ruckus ensued at the protest site where Bhardwaj, allegedly jumped on Mishra before police officials and his aides caught hold of him.

AAP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia dubbed Mishra's hunger strike as "BJP facilitated". Jha's attempt to go to Mishra's house in Civil Lines and stage a hunger strike was unsuccessful as he and his supporters were detained near barricades, 500m ahead of the house.

Minister Kapil Mishra on Sunday stated that he will continue his "Satyagraha" until he does not get any answer about the detailed list of the visits made by the AAP ministers.

"They must know that I will handover the evidence only to investigative agencies".

Mishra's fast entered the fourth day today.

Former Delhi Water and Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra on Wednesday alleged that he had been getting death threats ever since he chose to go against the Aam Aadmi Party and "expose" the corruption in the party.

AAP counterparts, BJP and Congress supported Mishra's allegation while an AAP leader said, "Mishra is taking tools of protest that we had used, and then attacking the party that he has grown with".

"I would urge the police to provide security to Jha".

In a late night development, a team of doctors from RML hospital examined Mishra and said his vitals, including blood sugar level, pulse, blood pressure, is normal.

Speaking on AAP MLA Sanjeev Jha who also chose to go on AN indefinite hunger strike, Mishra said, "Everyone has right to protest outside my house".

Social activist Anna Hazare on Tuesday said he would sit on an agitation to demand the resignation of Arvind Kejriwal if the allegations of corruption against the Delhi chief minister were proved.
