  • Farmer suicide at AAP rally

    A controversy over Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rally in which a farmer committed suicide in full public view has hit the party's leader Ashutosh for posting an insensitive tweet. Even as Arvind Kejriwal came under fire for continuing with his speech as the tragedy of the farmer's suicide unfolded at Jantar Mantar, AAP leader Ashutosh, in a mocking statement, said that the next time anybody tries to commit suicide, he would tell Delhi CM to climb the tree and rescue him. "If Arvind had stopped his speech midway, there would have been a stampede-like situation. And why are we being blamed? What did the policemen do? Not even a single policeman moved despite repeated requests by the CM. "The next time anyone tries to commit suicide, I will ask the Delhi CM to climb the tree and save him," he said before, later, apologising for the statement. (23, April, 2015) (Image: PTI)

  • AAP MLA bhagwant maan

    Speaker expunges AAP MP Bhagwant Mann's remarks did not go down well with the Opposition today. Speaker Sumitra Mahajan's decision to expunge an AAP member's remark referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi triggered strong protests from the opposition, including Congress and TMC in the Lok Sabha today, forcing her to promise a reconsideration. Bhagwant Mann's dig at Modi while participating in an impromptu debate caused by a farmer's suicide did not go down well with Mahajan who ordered it to be expunged. Her contention was that opposition members were dragging the Prime Minister's name in almost every debate which was not "fair". (23, April, 2015) (Image: PTI)
