“Received “objectionable” CD of minister Sandeep Kumar. AAP stands for propriety in public life that can’t be compromised. Removing him from Cabinet with immediate effect,” Kejriwal tweeted.

According to English News channel Times Now, Kejriwal had known of the CD for over a day and had taken action only after the news was broken by media houses.

Later, in the evening, not Kejriwal but his Deputy CM Manish Sisodia defended his government against his charge at a one-sided news conference in which he refused to take any questions from reporters. He claimed, “we received a CD with objectionable content. Within half an hour of receiving the CD, the minister was sacked.”

Sisodia further said, “AAP will not tolerate any allegations of corruption or impropriety… AAP works with a zero tolerance policy. Not just ministers, we have 67 MLAs. We will not tolerate such behaviour from anyone in any position in the party including me or Arvind Kejriwalo.”

It may be mentioned here that Sandeep Kumar is the third minister Kejriwal has dropped since he was voted back to power in 2015.
