Differences in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) came out in the open on Wednesday with party MLA Vinod Kumar Binny accusing the Delhi Government of deviating from its principles and poll promises and calling Arvind Kejriwal a “liar”.

Binny, a former Congressman who had publicly displayed his unhappiness after he was left out of the cabinet in December, also threatened to “expose” the party at a press conference tomorrow while slamming it for “failing” to fulfil the promises made to people of Delhi.

Rubbishing the MLA’s criticism, Kejriwal said, “First, he had come to me for ministership, we refused. After that, he wanted to contest the Lok Sabha polls. He came to my house to ask for the ticket. The party has decided that all sitting MLAs would not be given tickets for the Lok Sabha polls.”

Binny immediately denied demanding either ministership or ticket to contest the Lok Sabha polls, saying it was the “biggest lie if he (Kejriwal) has made the statement that I went to him for Lok Sabha ticket. I even never soght the post of minister.”

Earlier, the MLA said there has been lot of difference between what the party promised and how the government was working.

“I will divulge all these things in a press conference tomorrow to ensure accountability and transparency in the party,” the Laxmi Nagar MLA told reporters.

Binny said he was not upset over not becoming a minister and wants to raise the issues in public interest.

“I am not upset over anything. The party is drifting from the main issues. Hence, it is important for us to make them realise that we are in the party for its cause and the issues it raised,” the MLA said.

Kejriwal said there was a meeting on Tuesday of all 70 candidates who contested the Delhi polls but the MLA did not raise a single point in the meeting.

“I do not know what his intentions are and I do not even want to get into it. We are the most sensitive government towards resolving issues. We welcome criticism, be it the public, media or the BJP,” he said.

The Chief Minister said party leader Yogendra Yadav will handle the issue.

          the very first mistake made by AAP is to add an ex-congress cadre ... now they have to pay for their mistake..this guy clearly showed his skin color on the first day after not getting a berth in cabinet minister.. until today no single AAP member has departed from AAP..this is the first because it has congress blood. AAP need's to make the induction system more transparent .not just add any body and then found that he is a c.. the same should be done during LOK sahba ..election or else 50% AAP MP's will resign .. due to their self -intrest.. AAP is running to high ... they should confined themselves within delhi.. do some good .then start .. all over India..

            Kejriwal's story is as follows. He took paid study leave for 3 years after submitting bond that he will serve the govt for another 5 years. But after joining duty went on leave without pay . When the IT dept sent him letters for complying with the bond or else return the bond amount ,he sent back the cheque to PM and not the IT department.. For his NGO he received Rs 2.5 crore from ford foundation. He did not rejoin the services after study leave because he was earning more through his NGO. So much for the honesty of this conman. He is just creation of media paid by congress to keep BJP away from forming Govt.Best wishes,

                  If the blood is bad why is AAP bed-mates with Congress? There is a valid point in Mr Binny's concern. Where are all the 18 point agenda and anything done to tackle the corrupt congress, especially Sheila D? The truth is AAP does not want to contradict Congress rather shield it. Kejriwal is a baby of the NAC mother right? So who is Kejri fooling?

                    Thank you , Rajdeep Sirdesai !Thank you for conducting that brutal interview ofArvind Kejriwal , Saay eveningNormally , Arvind is a very reticent fellowBut you managed to rattle him !But for your penetrating questions , Arvind would nothave volunteered to reveal on his own , the following : RESERVATIONOF 90 % SEATS - It is only for 28 colleges which arepartially or fully funded by DelhiGovernment It is forANY student ( from any state of India ) , who pes his / her 10thstandard from any Delhi school FREE WATER - Only 20KL per month is free Our goalis to " Reduce Consumption / Conserve " Hence itmakes sense to charge those who continue to consume more than 20KL . If theywant FREE , they must cut back on consumption ! Again itmakes lot of Economic Sense , to give water free , only to those whohave meters Lakhs ofhouseholds will now get motivated to install meters ! A verypowerful incentive That willintroduce " Measurement of Resource " NO WATER INSLUMS / UNAUTHORISED COLONIES - This is a physical problem of laying 150 Kmof new pipe-lines /installation of pumps etc No one askedCongress government re this for 15 years ! It istotally unfair to expect AAP to do this in 15 days ! DIFFERINGVIEWS / OPINIONS AMONGST AAP LEADERS - This is what democracy is all about ! We encourageALL to speak their minds without fear / reservations Ideas mustflow unhindered We believe inbrain-storming , not in suppressing views ! But , PAC members /MLAs / Core Committee Members etc will need to toe the FINAL PARTYPOSITION ( arrived after fierce internal debate / evaluation / consensus ) inpublic , irrespective of their personal views As far asmillions of ORDINARY MEMBERS are concerned ( including Capt Gopinath /Mallika Sarabhai etc ) , they are at liberty to criticize even the FINAL PARTYPOSITION We imposePARTY DISCIPLINE , only on office bearers And sinceVinod Binny is our MLA , he is bound by this internal CODE OF CONDUCT . He must leavethe party , if he cannot comply SOMNATHBHARATI TAKING LAW IN OWN HANDS - If Delhi police won't act against drug mafia/ racketeers , despite a pile ofcomplaints from local citizens , then our ministers will come out on the streets ,in support of the oppressed We will nothesitate to join their agitation / revolt against the corrupt ! Even Mahatmahi , had to break the unjust British Laws We will do thesame If we cannotchange the law with the support of our MLAs , then we will break it withthe support of the suffering public Make nomistakes about it ! AAPENGAGING IN ANARCHY / CHAOS / POPULISM - Another TV channel editor said , we arecontinuing " Activism " Still anotherTV anchor says , AAP failed to graduate to " Governance " Use any - andall - adjectives you can , to describe our behavior / actions We are notguided / governed by any " Ideology" ( Left / Right / Center ) When we takeany decision / action , we only apply " hi Guideline " , viz ; " Will this help the poorest person ?" AAP TAKINGCONGRESS SUPPORT - If they like , let them withdraw their (unasked for ) support today Let there bere-elections People ofDelhi will bring us back with 50 seats CONTESTINGLOK DABHA SEAT ? - I may , if Party asks me [ Arvind , Whereas all the rest of your answers were mostappropriate , this was the mostdisappointing ! If yousucb to the " wishes " of your colleagues , not only the peopleof Delhi , but of entire India , will conclude that , # Youare an opportunist # Youare after power # You cannot be trusted # You have betra them ]Once again , thank you Rajdeep ,But for your grilling , public would have continued tobelieve the canards being dished out by those pseudo - experts trying to drownout each other , on panel discussions / obsessions !* hemen parekh ( 20 Jan 2014 / Mumbai )

                        There will always be people like Binny in all you parties. The difference is how you manage the differences of opinions and take stern action against any wrongdoing or self fulfilling agenda of these individuals. Binny doesnt seem to be a person you want to have in you team (based on his actions) and AAP is better off to make the tough call now rather than later.

                            In his press conference He was clearly saying what BJP said to him.It's crystal clear that Cong is out the picture for the race to PM hence BJP will get direct benefit for it and only hurdle on the way of BJP is AAP.Now how to overcome on it? "Dived and rule"-what other party likely to do with AAP.Binny was ex-congress man and now become agent of BJP.He should understand sheila dixit had not done or taken such a bold steps as kejriwal has taken in just one month after he became CM.

                              Kejriwal telling lies. There were report of Mr. Binny's unhappiness over denial of ministerial berth to him during the formation of ministry. Matter was solved and Kejriwal on record himself has denied the media report that Mr. Benny ever asked for ministerial berth.

                                      Mr.Kejriwal you will face lot of problem as greedy people and mafia will not allow you to function. hiji was murdered by fanatic and India has lot of fanatics who faces challenge from AAP. The money making machinery is out to stop AAP as they will not be able to torture poor for grabbing land, Dabang will not be able to charge Monthly from Auto/taxi and shop keepers. Land mafia, tanker mafia, drug mafia, Satha Mafia and many more criminals will not easily digest AAP who have political shelters.

So far Kejriwal has done only the easiest things using the power but nothing constructive...Now he has become dependent on Congress and Not talking about the Corruptions done by congress..!!. All the votes given with peoples curiosity are in vain.!

                                          AAP is not at all a disciplined all India level Party. This is a Group of "Disgruntled and Frustrated People" who believe that by shouting Jindabad - Murdabad in streets having a Cap on their heads and Broom in their hands, they can bring a change in the system over night. Country needs a well disciplined all India level Party with a strong, able, dedicated, tried and committed leadership. I think BJP under the leadership of Sh. Narendra Modi is the only "ANSWER" to the present situation in the Country. " Modi Lao Aur UPA Ke Looteron Ko Bhagao."
