Aam Admi Party on Wednesday claimed to have resolved the dissent by one of its MLA after he was denied a berth in the Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet.
Senior party leaders Sanjay Singh and Kumar Vishwas went to the residence of Laxmi Nagar MLA Vinod Kumar Binny late last night and held parlays to pacify him.
“There is no rift between me and party. There is nothing that I was angry as I was denied a post in the ministry,” Vinod Kumar Binny told PTI.
After a long meeting, Mr. Singh and Mr. Vishwas came out and said, “there was no dissent and it was all created by media.”
“It was our regular meeting and we have been meeting on various occasion and it is one of them,” they said.
On Tuesday, Arvind Kejriwal had announced his cabinet which include the names of Manish Sisodia, a former journalist who won from Patparganj constituency, Rakhi Birla, who defeated PWD Minister Rajkumar Chouhan, Somnath Bharti (defeated Women and Child Development Minister Kiran Walia) Saurabh Bhardwaj, Girish Soni and Satendra Jain.
An upset Mr. Binny had on Tuesday walked out of a meeting with Mr. Kejriwal at his residence and told the media that he would address a press conference on Wednesday that could embarrass the party.
