The Aam Aadmi Party expelled its rebelling MLA from Laxmi Nagar, Vinod Kumar Binny on late Sunday night on ground of indiscipline.
The expulsion leaves the AAP government in Delhi hanging by a thread. With the outside support of eight Congress MLAs, the AAP government had 36 seats, but with Binny’s expulsion, the 35 seats that the party has leaves it one short of a majority in the 70-seat Assembly.

However, to the party’s benefit, JD(U) MLA Shoaib Iqbal seems inclined to vote in favour of the government if it comes to another vote of confidence.
The Assembly Speaker, who is from AAP, does not usually vote. But he always has the option of using a ‘casting vote’, if needed.
This means, the Kejriwal government still has 36 votes in its favour in the House.
