BJP on Friday moved a privilege motion against AAP MP Bhagwant Mann for shooting a video clip of his journey to the Parliament House, its security and live streaming it on Facebook. This action of Mann has created a major furore and he is facing flak from various quarters for doing such an irresponsible act. In the video, Mann is seen giving commentary as his vehicle crosses security barricades. “I’ll today show you something you would not have seen earlier,” he said at the beginning of the video.
Hitting out at Mann, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, “One should not play with the security of Parliament. Making such videos viral is not the right thing to do.” He also added, “Dobaara karenge toh jail jayenge, chori aur seena zori nahi chalti.” Meenakshi Lekhi said that it should be verified whether it was an act of foolishness or was done under the influence of some agencies.
However, Mann was unperturbed by the criticism and said that he would put another video on social media on Friday as well. “Kya mere video se sansad khatre me aa gaya,” he asked.
Sumita Mahajan has taken cognizance of the matter and is likely to call the parliamentarian from Punjab on Friday. She is also likely to seek a detailed report from the Parliament security on the issue, according to various sources. “I will post a video again tomorrow (Friday), let me be served a notice,” he said.
