New Delhi, Feb 10: In a major setback for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government, independent MLA Rambeer Shokeen withdrew his support from the government.

The MLA, who earlier had threatened to withdraw support, on Monday, Feb 10 announced his final decision raising fingers at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). According to Shokeen, AAP has failed to fulfil its promises.

Independent MLA Rambeer Shokeen said AAP did not fulfil its promises

The independent MLA earlier had claimed that Kejriwal made several promises on power and water problems in Delhi. But even after several days in office Kejriwal has failed to implement the promises.

AAP made a historical entry into Indian politics with Delhi assembly election. In its very first debut, AAP had won 28 seats in the 70-member Assembly. With the outside support of eight Congress MLAs, one JDU MLA and an Independent MLA, the AAP crossed the half-way mark and stood at 38.

Kejriwal, meanwhile, threatened that he will resign as Delhi CM if the Parliament fails to pass Lokpal Bill in the ongoing session of the Houses. It seems that Shokeen's move of withdrawing support from AAP government might not leave any impact as the CM himself might give up his powers.
