Hitting out at AAP for not working on its promises, expelled MLA Vinod Kumar Binny on Monday met the Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung to take up issues, which have not been addressed by the Kejriwal government and demand action against controversial Law Minister Somnath Bharti.
“We demanded that action be taken in Somnath-African woman case. The Law Minister assaulted and misbehaved with African women during the midnight raid. The LG has assured me that law is equal for everyone and let law take its course,” he told reporters after meeting Mr. Jung.
Mr. Binny, who is set to hold a dharna against the AAP government at Jantar Mantar, claimed that “The decision to expel me was taken to gag other party MLAs dissatisfied by the party leadership.”
“The party, which was formed to fight corruption and had called Sheila Dikshit and other leaders corrupt, has not even initiated a probe against them.”
“Delhi has broken its record in regard to cases of violence against women, and still women commando force promised by AAP has not been formed. They are playing with the lives of sisters and daughters.”
However, the MLA said he would support the party on public-related issues.
“I will support AAP-led government on Jan Lokpal Bill,” he said.
Asked if he was going to join BJP or Congress, he said he was “not going to join either BJP or Congress as I am against their politics”.
Mr. Binny was expelled from the party on Sunday night following a decision by the AAP’s disciplinary committee.
