AAP MP Bhagwant Mann, who is currently facing enquiry for posting a video that showed some Parliament security measures, today submitted a 5-page letter to the Committee that was formed by Lok Sabha Sumitra Mahajan on the issue. Mann in his letter said that he hasn’t committed any mistake. Earlier this week, Mann had said that a Parliament panel should also summon Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “inviting ISI” to Pathankot airbase. In a letter to Sumitra Mahajan, Mann had said that PM Modi is “hundred times more guilty” for “inviting ISI” to probe the Pathankot airbase terror attack in January.

Mann’s letter to the committee and Sumitra Mahajan come after the Lok Sabha speaker refused to accept his unconditional apology and ordered a probe against him over the incident. Mann has also been advised against attending Parliament till the committee arrives at a decision with regards to his conduct. Mann had earlier “apologised unconditionally” for his social media video post.  “I met Speaker Madam, and I told her that I must be given an opportunity to explain. My intention was not to risk the security of Parliament,” he had said.

The video by Mann has the MP talking about the “strong security” in Parliament. Mann is seen talking about how censors identify any car entering the Parliament. In the video the AAP MP crosses several layers of security in the Parliament, and is seen giving a commentary on the same. BJP, JD(U) and Congress MPs have termed Mann’s video an act of security breach.
