Delhi: Binny to contest against Kejriwal
New Delhi, Nov 11: Vinod Kumar Binny, the erstwhile Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA from east Delhi's Laxmi Nagar constituency, has announced that he will contest against AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal in the upcoming Assembly elections in Delhi.

As per an Indian Express report, Binny has confirmed that he will fight against the former Delhi chief minister Kejriwal from New Delhi Assembly constituency and he plans to expose him during poll campaign. Binny has also confirmed that he has been working in the New Delhi constituency for past few months.

But the suspended AAP MLA has not confirmed whether he'll contest on a BJP ticket saying one will have to wait for clarity.

Binny also said that Kejriwal will be forced to contest from nowhere but New Delhi, because if he chooses to contest from any other seat it will send a message that he is afraid.

Binny, a BA graduate from Delhi University's Motilal Nehru College, has been a three-time MLA from Delhi. He had earlier served as the "ward councillor" in mohalla sabhas where he is known to have worked without any self-interests and with full genuinity.

Binny was elected as an independent in 2007 and 2012. During 2009 to 2011, he was supported by the Congress.

Binny proved his potential as a promising politician when he defeated the Congress strongman and the sitting MLA Ashok Kumar Walia by a margin of 8,000 votes, during last year's Delhi assembly elections.

It must be noted that during the last year's assembly poll in the national capital, new comer Kejriwal had defeated three-time Delhi CM Shiela Dikshit by a huge margin of more than 16,000 votes.
