New Delhi, Aug 17 : Former AAP MLA from Karawal Nagar Kapil Mishra joined the
Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday. Kapil Mishra, who was earlier seen with BJP leaders allegedly seeking votes for Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the General Elections, joined the saffron party at a function in presence of Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and party leader Vijay Goel.
Mishra was disqualified as a member of the Delhi legislative Assembly on August 2 by Speaker Ram Niwas Goel on the grounds of defection. He was accused of asking for votes in favour of PM during the Lok Sabha elections. With Mishra's disqualification, the Assembly seat of Karawal Nagar, which was with Kapil Mishra, is now vacant. Meanwhile, AAP MLAs--Anil Bajpai and Devinder Sehrawat were also disqualified by Mr Goel on August 8.UNI
