It seems that AAP MP Bhagwant Mann has not learnt any lessons from the Parliament video controversy. Mann, who was suspended from the Lok Sabha for shooting a Parliament video recently, on Thursday allegedly incited his party volunteers to throw journalists out of his rally for asking a question related to the sacking of a party minister in the wake of a sex CD.
According to reports, as soon as Mann asked the media to leave “or people will throw you out”, AAP volunteers tried to snatch cameras and also manhandled journalists, who had to run out of the venue for safety. Mann was addressing the rally in Bassi Pathana, Fatehgarh Sahib.
The Chandigarh Press Club has condemned the incident and its office-bearers will soon meet the director general of police (DGP), Punjab, for an immediate FIR against Mann.
