‘I cannot sit next to Bhagwant Mann because of the smell of alcohol’: Suspended AAP MP Harinder Khalsa

, 7:05 PM IST

New Delhi: Suspended AAP MP Harinder Singh Khalsa claims, that Aam Aadmi Party lawmaker Bhagwant Mann comes to Parliament in an inebriated state. Khalsa said.“I have not complained but urged the (Lok Sabha) Speaker (Sumitra Mahajan) and requested her to change my seat.”

Bhagwant Mann apologises over his video filming of the Parliament security as he was summoned by Lok Speaker Sumitra Mahajan who will consult political parties for “appropriate action” into the “too serious” matter.

He submitted an apology letter to the Speaker,which reads, when he was coming to the House to attend Zero Hour, he had made the video by mistake as “I did not know that it is against the rules”.

Contending that he had no intention of compromising the security of Parliament, he said, “I apologise unconditionally. I will not repeat it in future.”
Mann gives a running commentary as his vehicle crosses security barricades and enters Parliament. “I’ll today show you something you would not have seen earlier,” he is heard saying in the video.

He also says the process is entirely transparent and shows how the lucky draw is carried out to select the questions. At one point, he is also heard saying, “It
is going live.”

However the speaker is not impressed by his apology saying it was a matter “too serious” considering that Parliament has been attacked by terrorists once.
