Bhagwant Mann FB video row: Deadline for AAP MP to depose before parliamentary panel ends today
AAP MP from Sangrur Bhagwant Mann is supposed to depose before the parliamentary panel before 3 pm today.
New Delhi: The deadline for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Bhagwant Mann, who has faced criticism for live-streaming the visuals of security arrangements inside the Parliament House Complex on social media, to depose before a high-powered committee ends on Thursday.
As per reports, Mann is supposed to depose before the parliamentary panel before 3 pm today.
AAP's Sangrur lawmaker had on Tuesday tendered an ''unconditional apology'' to Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan for making video of his journey from home to Parliament House, including movement past various security check points, and posting it on the social media.
Mann was flaked from various quarters for putting Parliament complex security in danger.
“I explained my stand to Lok Sabha Speaker. She said what I did was not right and I should apologise. So I tendered an apology in writing saying that it was unintentional, I was only trying to make an educational video,” said Mann in a press conference.
Earlier on Monday, Mann was advised by Mahajan not to attend Parliament until a panel set up to probe the video arrives at a decision. Mahajan formed a nine-member panel to probe Mann’s breach of security posting a video of Parliament’s interiors.
“A nine-member committee to probe and submit its report to the house over AAP MP Bhagwant Mann’s video,” Sumitra Mahajan informed the house.
The panel will submit the report on August 3.
