“I’ll regis­ter an FIR against you (Ke­jri­wal). I apol­o­gise for that and seek your bless­ing.”

India Today - - UPFRONT -

KAPIL MISHRA, speak­ing to the press be­fore he went to the CBI to ac­cuse Delhi chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal of cor­rup­tion, took the bizarre step of ask­ing for the lat­ter’s ap­pro­ba­tion. Since the Aam Aadmi Party’s de­feat in civic polls last month, it has lurched and stum­bled—no sooner than it had smoothed things over with found­ing member Ku­mar Vish­was, than Mishra, a Vish­was ally, an­gered at be­ing re­lieved of his du­ties as water min­is­ter, ac­cused the ap­par­ently in­cor­rupt­ible Ke­jri­wal of be­hav­ing like politi­cians he claimed to loathe: us­ing his of­fice to se­cure sweet­heart deals for fam­ily mem­bers and en­rich­ing him­self.
