Won’t withdraw support to AAP: JD-U legislator

New Delhi, Feb 3: The sole Janta Dal-United (JD-U) legislator in the Delhi assembly, Sohaib Iqbal, Monday said he would not withdraw support to the one-month-old Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government.

Iqbal and an independent legislator, Ramveer Shauken, met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Monday and made the announcement.

“Kejriwalji has agreed to our demands and has promised that he will look into the matter,” Iqbal told reporters.

The two legislators had Sunday threatened to withdraw support to the one-month-old government if it did not agree to their demands, and push forth with promises made ahead of the elections.

However, expelled AAP MLA Vinod Kumar Binny, who had also threatened to withdraw support along with the two legislators, did not meet Kejriwal Monday.
