Bhagwant Mann Puts Parliament Security At Risk

Aam Aadmi Party member Bhagwant Mann on Thursday live streamed video on facebook of his journey from his home to parliament house, it included the security checks. Bhagwant Mann has been getting a lot flak for putting parliament house at risk.

How he puts parliament at risk?

Visitors who come to parliament are not allowed any camera or even a pen drive, only MP’s and some police officers have this privelage. This was done because of security reasons speacially after the parliament terror attack. In the video Bhagwant Mann can be heard narrating the detailed secuity procedures that MLA’s go through while entering the car builiding.

This isn’t the first time he put parliament’s dignity at stake, last year in October, he came to parliament drunk. Guess he hasn’t learned his lesson yet.

This is what Bhagwant Mann has to say in the issue

“I do not think I did anything wrong. I did it today and I will do It tomorrow until Lok Sabha Speaker sends me a notice in this regard. People have sent us to the Parliament. They have a right to know how questions are asked. My video pose a security threat to Parliament? Is it illegal or inappropriate to post a video which shows procedure of how questions are taken up in Parliament during question hour?”

Taking a note from this incident, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Thursday asked parliament members to maintain dignity. She told the media, “Every parliamentarian must respect and maintain dignity of Parliament. Meanwhile, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has taken cognizance of Bhagwant Mann’s video which is now being investigated.
