Lok Sabha adjourns after uproar over AAP MP Bhagwant Mann's Parliament video, other issues

The Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned for about an hour on Friday morning after members, mainly from the ruling NDA, created din over the issue of AAP member Bhagwant Mann's videography of Parliament House yesterday.



New Delhi: The Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned for about an hour on Friday morning after members, mainly from the ruling NDA, created din over the issue of AAP member Bhagwant Mann's videography of Parliament House yesterday.

Members from other opposition parties including RJD and SP trooped into the Well holding placards seeking their "right" on the reservation in jobs.

As soon as the House met for the day, NDA members raised the issue of Mann's videography of Parliament House complex, terming it as a security breach.

 

Kirit Somaiya (BJP) demanded his disqualification as an MP, while his party colleague R K Singh, a former Home Secretary, said the AAP member has put a question mark on the security of the sensitive complex. He demanded a breach of privilege motion be brought against Mann.

Mann was present in the House.

As NDA members were raising the issue from their benches, RJD and SP members rushed to the Well holding placards 'arakshan ki haq-maari nahi chalegi' (Won't allow usurping of our right of reservation). They were apparently expressing their anguish over a delay in passage of a bill on reservation in promotions.

Amid pandemonium, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House till noon.

 

In the nearly 12 minute video, 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 says.

Mann then enters a room where questions to be taken up inside Parliament are being sorted and describes the process.
