New Delhi law minister to be AAP's Kapil Mishra, ex-Greenpeace, Amnesty campaigner

"Kapil Mishra to be Delhi’s new Law and Tourism Minister,” tweeted @IndiaToday and others citing “sources” about who would replace Jitender Singh Tomar, as the former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) law minister was arrested by the police yesterday and resigned.

Mishra, vice chairman of the Delhi Jal Board, is a social entrepreneur and has worked with Greenpeace and Amnesty International, according to his Linked-in profile and Wikipedia. Between November 2012 and July 2013 he was networking and advocacy coordinator at Amnesty, head of the Northern Region of the Retailers Association of India for one year, policy officer and campaigner at Greenpeace for nearly two years, and a history at other NGOs such as Youth for Justice.

He tweets irregularly at @kapil_change.

Tomar’s predecessor was Somnath Bharti.
