AP convener Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday played down reports of a rift in the party over the issue of cabinet berths and said party MLA Vinod Kumar Binny was not upset over his non-inclusion.
A day after the Laxmi Nagar MLA, a ministerial hopeful walked out of a meeting at Mr. Kejriwal’s house after coming to know that he was not among the probable ministers, Mr. Kejriwal said the legislator was not interested in a ministerial berth.
“Binny came to me last evening. He told me he does not want a ministerial berth and that he was here for a mission. Binny said he has conveyed to the media that he was not upset,” said Mr. Kejriwal.
Mr. Binny on his part stated that he was not angry and that there was no rift in the party.
“There is no rift between me and the party. There is nothing that I was angry about after being denied a post in the ministry,” he told PTI.
