"I am not upset with the party. There is no rift within the party," Binny told media here.

“I gave a statement yesterday that whatever media wants to ask, they can ask in our press conference tomorrow. This statement has been represented in other way. There is no rift,” he said.

“I left early because I had to go for a reception. There are many other responsibilities. They might have chosen me for some other responsibility. I don't want to be a minister,” he added.
