AAP MP Mann apologises, removes video from Facebook
New Delhi, July 22 (IANS) After apologising to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan for posting a video on security zones in Parliament House complex, Aam Aadmi Party lawmaker Bhagwant Mann has removed the clipping from his Facebook account.
The video was not available on the Facebook page of the Aam Aadmi Party MP from Sangrur in Punjab where it was uploaded on Thursday.
Mann on Thursday shot a video clip of his journey from home to Parliament House here, including going past various security check points, and posted it on the social media, drawing flak from various quarters for putting the Parliament House security in peril.
Amid an uproar in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, Mann tendered an unconditional apology to the Speaker and said he did not want to jeopardise the security of Parliament House.
“I have written to the Speaker tendering an unconditional apology. I also have the highest regard for this temple of democracy and did not want to jeopardise its security and dignity in any manner,” he told reporters outside Parliament House.
Until Friday morning, before the two houses met, Mann remained defiant, saying he has done no wrong and will post more such videos.
Proceedings in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were washed out on Friday following an uproar over the AAP MP’s conduct.
