“Yes, we have issued a show-cause notice to Binny,” an official told IANS.
He said the notice states “you held a press conference at 10 a.m. on the given date”, with intent to “tarnish the image of the party”.
“This is in violation of … the party’s constitution,” the notice further says.
The official said Binny has been asked to respond to the notice by 5 p.m. on Jan 18 before the party’s national secretary Pankaj Gupta.
Binny had attacked the party and the government for allegedly backtracking on the promises made in the assembly election manifesto, including on water and power sectors.
