New Delhi, Feb 10 : Ahead of tabling its much touted Jan Lokpal bill, Independent MLA Rambeer Shokeen withdrew support to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi on Monday, plunging it into a crisis and making it a minority government.
AAP had 28 seats on its own besides the support of Shokeen- now withdrawn- while it is backed by the eight Congress legislators.
In the 70-member assembly now Kejriwal's government has support of 35 MLAs.
Shokeen had earlier threatened to withdraw support.
AAP MLA Vinod Kumar Binny was expelled by the outfit for anti-party activities earlier.
