Bhagwant Mann, Aam Aadmi Party Member of Parliament, who has been suspended for uploading a video of parliament, wrote an “unconditional apology” letter to Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan on July 28 and stood in his statement that he did not commit any security breach.
Mann, who is advised not to attend the parliament session until the enquiry committee report comes, submitted the five-page apologetic letter to the committee and the speaker. The MP apologised for making the video but claimed that he did not breach security. He also wrote that even news channels broadcast parliament proceedings.
According to reports, Mann had earlier said to the enquiry committee headed by BJP MP Kirti Azad that panel should also summon Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allowing Pakistan’s ISI visit Pathankot Air Base.
In his apologetic letter, Mann had written to the Lok Sabha Speaker on July 22 saying “I apologise unconditionally. I will not repeat it in future”. However, the Speaker didn’t accept the apology calling it a serious matter and couldn’t be solved with a mere apology.
Mann had made a video of going to the Parliament from his home and crossing the various security checks during the same and uploaded it on social media.
