Aam Aadmi Party MP Bhagwant Mann triggered a controversy on Thursday by posting a video on social media of Parliament’s security pickets and internal security positions.
Mann, however, defended his act saying he was just showing people how the Parliament functions. “Is it illegal, inappropriate to post a video which shows procedure of how questions are taken up in Parliament during question hour,” Bhagwant Mann said.
He also asked if his video pose a security threat to Parliament. “Kya meri video se sansad khatre mein aa gyi. (Did my video pose a security threat to Parliament),” asked the AAP MP. “I will post a video again tomorrow. Let me be served a notice.”
The BJP called Mann’s act “highly irresponsible” and said he should ahve shown some sense. “He (Bhagwant Mann) should have had some sense. There already has been an attack on Parliament,” said BJP’s RK Singh.
BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi said, “It needs to be verified if it was act of foolishness or was done under the influence of some agencies.”
