New Delhi: Expelled Aam Aadmi Party legislator Vinod Kumar Binny Monday withdrew, from the Delhi High Court, his plea seeking that he be declared him an independent member of the legislature.

With the dissolution of the Delhi assembly Nov 4, Binny moved an application before Justice Vibhu Bakhru to withdraw his plea, and the court gave its assent.

Binny, was elected from the Laxmi Nagar assembly constituency as an AAP candidate in the December 2013 elections.

After Lt Governor Najeeb Jung recommended the dissolution of the Delhi assembly as major players, the Bharatiya Janata Party, the AAP and Congress – expressed inability to form government and preferred holding of polls, the union cabinet ordered the same.

In the 70-member Delhi assembly, no political party had enough numbers to a stable government.

Delhi has been under President’s rule since Feb 17 following the resignation of then chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who headed a minority AAP government for 49 days.
