Expelled AAP MLA Vinod Kumar Binny described his ouster from the party as unfortunate, and claimed that the ruling party in Delhi "wants the government to fall" to escape the promises it has made to the people.
"It cannot be more unfortunate than the fact that you need somebody to make you realise the promises you have made to the public and you end up expelling that person from the party," the Laxmi Nagar MLA told reporters soon after he was expelled from the party.
Before evicting me you (AAP) should have ousted those people from the party who talked about dividing the nation, those who misbehaved with women, those who made fun of the laws of the land and disobeyed the rules, he said.
On being asked why he was expelled from the party, he said, "I feel they want that the government falls and they are saved from the people whom they promised many things. I want to say that Vinod Kumar Binny will vote on those issues that the party is hiding from."
"I would not allow them to run away from the promises they made to the public," he said.
Aam Aadmi Party tonight expelled Binny, ten days after he called Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a "dictator" and accused the party of "betraying" the people of Delhi by backtracking on its election promises.
Binny had announced that he will sit on a dharna at Jantar Mantar if the party fails to fulfil the promises made to people by January 27.
