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?
