Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra's mother has written a letter to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of spreading lies regarding her son.
What is the issue?
Yesterday, several Aam Aadmi Party leaders had tweeted pictures in which Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari and Mishra were seen in one frame, alleging that Mishra is a BJP agent and is making allegations against Kejriwal at the behest of the BJP.

Many leaders also highlighted the fact that Mishra's mother, Annapurna Mishra, has links to BJP as she is a former BJP mayor of Delhi.
What does Annapurna's letter say?
She also expressed disappointment at Kejriwal's silence on the questions being posed by her son. Annapurna said that she was proud of her son who was on a hunger strike and hadn't eaten for the last three days.
Here's the full letter, in Hindi:
The former mayor said Mishra was only "an agent of truth" and would keep soldiering on as he was very stubborn. She urged Kejriwal to share the information being sought by her son. After his removal as a minister and his suspension from the party, Mishra launched a fast demanding that the AAP divulge details of foreign tours undertaken by five leaders of the party which, in turn, has accused him of following a script penned by the BJP.
