New Delhi: Team Anna member Kiran Bedi on Thursday
condemned the attack on Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar but
said one should analyse why such things happen to public
functionaries.

"While condemning assault on public functionaries, (one)
needs to analyse why is this happening and what must done to
contain this.”

"Assault on public functionaries calls for serious
reflection at all levels of society including media forums,"
Bedi said in a tweet.

At public function here, Pawar was slapped by a youth who
claimed he was angry with corruption and price rise.

Pawar was slapped by Harvinder Singh, a transporter in
his thirties who had assaulted former Telecom Minister Sukhram
outside Rohini Court on Saturday after he was sentenced in a
corruption case.
