New Delhi: The AAP on Tuesday termed the charge of alcoholism against its MP Bhagwant Mann "baseless" and demanded the Parliament should have a system wherein lawmakers could be checked if they are drunk before they enter the complex.
Attempting to turn the heat on the BJP, AAP leader Ashutosh claimed he knew several MPs from the ruling party and otherwise who come to Parliament drunk.
"We have said there should be system under which those who come to Parliament drunk should be checked. I know so many MPs of the BJP and outside the BJP who go to Parliament drunk. I don't want to take their names," Ashutosh said.
Senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh said those who go to the Parliament drunk should be disqualified.
Fatehgarh Sahib MP Harinder Singh Khalsa, who was suspended from AAP, had complained to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan last week requesting that his seat in the House be changed as Mann, who sits next to him, "stinks of alcohol".
