A probe has been ordered into corruption allegations against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, levelled by his sacked water resources minister.

Lt. Governor Anil Baijal had asked the Delhi government to recover from the AAP the Rs 97 crore it spent on certain advertisements.

Mishra on Sunday alleged that he saw Kejriwal take Rs2 crore from Jain at his residence and also claimed that Kejriwal told me such things happen in politics.

Dubbing the allegations levelled by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Kapil Mishra as baseless, party leader Sanjay Singh on 8 May said it is a conspiracy by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to dethrone it.

On Saturday, Kapil Mishra was dismissed as the Delhi's water minister. "It will make clear who is telling the truth and who is lying", he told reporters here.

The bombshell prompted calls from the BJP and Congress for Kejriwal's ouster, but AAP stood solidly behind its leader, insisting there was no merit in the allegation and that "even his (Kejriwal's) enemies will not believe it".

"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. Reacting to his allegations, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said they were so absurd that they did not merit any response. I know Arvind for 12 years and I can not imagine him taking a bribe, ' Vishwas said after meeting Kejriwal.

Mishra was removed from the post of water minister on May 6. "Satyendar Jain told me that he has arranged a 7-acre land deal in Chattarpur for Arvind Kejriwal's brother-in-law's Bansal family". Rebuffing all the support pouring in for Kejriwal, Mishra said, "The day Satyendar Jain goes to jail, everything I've said will come true".

"Also, I told them how Kejriwal along with his two men affected the tanker scam probe". "AAP is my party, no one can throw me out of the party".

Between 2010 and 2013, the Sheila Dikshit led Delhi Government decided that water tankers supply water to areas outside the jurisdiction of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB).

Mishra also said that in Punjab elections booze, money and girls were used.

Pointing out that six ministers of Delhi are facing corruption charges, the Congress called Mr Mishra's allegations "very serious".
