AAP rejects MLA Binny's allegations; to take disciplinary action

January 16, 2014 14:51 IST

The Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday refuted the allegations levelled by its MLA Vinod Kumar Binny and said disciplinary action would be initiated against the legislator for "baseless accusations" against the party.

Addressing the media at AAP office in Ghaziabad, senior leader Yogendra Yadav said the MLA was making "baseless accusations" against the party as he was denied a ticket for the Lok Sabha election.

"The party's Political Affairs Committee will initiate disciplinary action against Binny and accordingly a show cause notice will be issued to him," Yadav told reporters, adding, that party members could have different opinion but AAP will not tolerate indiscipline.

The sulking AAP MLA from Laxmi Nagar accused the party of "cheating" people of Delhi by backtracking on its election promises and termed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a "dictator".

Binny addressed a press conference where he slammed the AAP leadership on a range of issues and said taking support of Congress to form the government was a "compromise on the party's principles".

"Today when Binny was speaking, it seemed that he was reading a script given to him by someone else. He has raised all those issue which the Leader of the Opposition Harsh Vardhan has been raising for the past few days.”

"If he had any grievances against the party or its leaders, there are ways of expressing it. He could have taken up the issues in the party, but never did he raise such issues during any of the party meetings. It's very sad," Yadav said, adding, that Binny should not put personal ambition before the people's hopes and expectations.

Yadav said the party MLAs had met on January 14 to discuss issues and during the meeting Binny did not raise a single point.

"Binny was a member of the screening committee during Delhi assembly elections. He was present at all important meetings and if he had any problem he could have raised the issues on the party platform," he said.

The senior AAP leader said that Binny was interested in ministerial berth and was keen to fight the Lok Sabha election from East Delhi.
