AAP Suspended M.P from Fatehgarh sahib lok sabha constituency Harinder singh khalsa has levelled serious allegations against the AAP Sangrur M.P Bhagwant Mann by accusing that he attends the parliament while taking alcohol.He has urged the Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to look into the matter.It is pertinent to mention here that AAP M.P had landed into trouble yesterday after uploading uploading a video on Facebook that many say will compromise the Parliamentary security.
Khalsa while coming out of the Parliament premises told reporters that “I have not made any complaint but have urged the Speaker and requested her to change my seat," said Khalsa, who was suspended from AAP for ‘anti-party activities’ in August 2015.
Khalsa further said that i am a sikh and it hurts my religious sentiments when Bhagwant Mann sits tipsy next to me. I request you to change my seat,” Khalsa reportedly wrote to the Speaker.
“I feel nauseous, disastrous. It is a torture, an atrocity. I sit on seat number 495 and come to lok sabha after performing puja-path. And then seat number 496 gives me nausea. Terrible foul alcohol smell makes it difficult for me to breathe,”added khalsa.
Responding to Khalsa’s complaint, Sumitra Mahajan told reporters that she is also looking into complaints of Mann coming drunk at Parliament.
Meanwhile, a complaint has been registered against Mann at the Parliament Street Police station, in connection with the controversial video.
The case comes despite the AAP MP offering an unconditional apology to lok sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan over his video.
According to sources, the Speaker was not impressed with Mann’s apology as his video was a serious matter concerning the security of the Parliament which had been attacked once.
Mann appeared before the lok sabha Speaker after being summoned over the video issue.
Sources in the lok sabha Secretariat said Mahajan had been trying to contact Mann since Thursday evening but his phone was not reachable. He could finally be contacted this morning.
The Speaker had sought his explanation on the video and Mr. Mann gave his views, they said.
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 is heard saying in the video.
Mann is then showed entering a room where questions to be taken up inside Parliament are being sorted and describes the process.
The issue led to the adjournment of House, first for an hour during Question Hour and then for the day.
