AAP MLA Kapil Mishra fainted after his press conference on revelations on AAP's finances, being taken to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, in New Delhi on Sunday.

Sacked Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra on Sunday alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lied about its donation figures to the Election Commission (EC).

She also highlighted that by sacking Kapil Mishra, Kejriwal had proved what kind of a person he is.

Mishra said the party had hidden Rs 36 crore.

Mishra, who used to be Delhi's water minister, was unexpectedly sacked on May 6.

"On May 7, Kapil Mishra had said that Arvind Kejriwal had met Satyendar Jain where he paid him Rs 2 crore".

Mishra, who has been on hunger strike since Wednesday, fainted while making a presentation on the irregularities in the financial transactions of the Aam Aadmi Party.

Singh also raked up past incidences of corruption in which BJP leader were allegedly involved, while noting that the former Chief Election Commissioner SY Quraishi had said that the AAP was the most transparent when it come to to political donations.

He demanded Kejriwal's resignation and vowed to put him behind bars. "Or else, I will drag you by your collar to Tihar Jail", bellowed Mishra, before swooning.

Goel and Yadav both denied the charges and said that they will file a criminal and civil defamation case against Mishra.

He alleged that during 2014-15, the party had around Rs 65 crore in its account but disclosed only Rs 32 crore whereas the fund details on AAP website showed Rs 27 crore.

Senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh said Mishra was echoing the allegations the BJP voiced just before the 2015 assembly polls.

The BJP leader said the AAP government in Delhi was "looting" the money of the city's taxpayers.

"The whole world knows about Kejriwal's credentials and he (Mishra) should give evidence to back his claim". He had earlier tweeted a picture of a bundle of documents, which he claimed to present to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Sunday. "They have also not explained why they removed the list of donors from the party website", she said, alleging that she was among the first ones to see what was happening in the party and so moved out. "Despite 54 deaths in the (Madhya Pradesh) Vyapam scam, the BJP is silent", he said.
