Hakumat wo karte hain jinka dilon pe raj hota hai, yun kehne ko to murge ke sarr e bhi taaj hota hai (Rulers are those who rule the hearts, otherwise even a rooster has a crown on his head).
Comedian-turned-AAP member Bhagwant Mann (41) recites these lines after wresting the Sangrur LS seat with the biggest margin in Punjab by humbling SAD and Congress heavyweights.
Going to the Parliament for the first time, the comedian claims that he will be a serious Parliamentarian. “Bhagwant Mann is not going to the LS to boycott, spray pepper or sleep. I will thump the desks to drive home my point when serious issues will be raised.”

On his Congress rival Vijay Inder Singla, he had been saying, “He has started wearing a helmet to villages, wary that someone may throw a stone at him.”
Mann promises to work for people’s welfare. Listing his priorities like improving facilities for schoolchildren and checking drug menance in the state, this political greenhorn says he is overwhelmed at the majority with which he was voted by his electorate.
Having polled 5.5 lakh votes out of a total 11 lakh, Mann feels he has been burdened with people’s love. “I have to return it. My predecessor returned Rs 4.66 crore unutilised. I will ensure I utilise every single penny,” he says.
