AAP expels rebel MLA Vinod Binny
New Delhi, Jan 26, 2014, DHNS: 2:40 IST
Rebel AAP legislator Vinod Kumar Binny, who had locked horns with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the party’s pre-poll promises, was expelled from the outfit late on Sunday night, on the eve of his hunger strike.
A disciplinary committee set up by the AAP took the action against the Laxmi Nagar MLA as he went to the press to air his grievances against the Kejriwal-led Delhi government.
“This disciplinary committee has decided to expel Vinod Kumar Binny and terminate his primary membership from the party, for publicly making false statements against the party and its leadership, thereby bringing disrepute to the party,” said a party statement.
Binny had said he would sit on an indefinite hunger strike at Jantar Mantar on Monday to protest against the AAP government for allegedly failing to fulfil its promises made on the power and water front.
