Amid detailing sensational charges of corruption against Arvind Kejriwal at a press conference today, sacked Delhi Minister Kapil Mishra fainted. The former minister has been on a hunger-strike that entered its fifth day today. He was promptly taken to the hospital and is said to be stable.
"He (Mishra) was brought to the recovery room five minutes after he was admitted to the emergency department. His condition is stable. We are monitoring him," a doctor at Delhi's Central Government Ram Manohar Lohia hospital was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.
Since he was sacked last week for what his party called poor performance, Mr Mishra has been attacking the chief minister and his former cabinet colleagues every day.
Today, he accused Mr Kejriwal of conducting hawala transactions, forming shell companies, playing with taxpayers' money and hiding information from Income Tax Department and the Election Commission.
