Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel earlier this month had disqualified Mishra under the anti-defection law after he campaigned for the BJP during the Lok Sabha elections in May.
Mishra, elected from Karawalnagar seat, has challenged his disqualification in Delhi High court.
Speculations over Mishra joining the BJP were making rounds since he started criticising the AAP supremo after being removed as a minister in May 2017.
Subsequently, he grew close to many Delhi BJP leaders and often shared the stage with them at public events.
