After the debacle in Delhi, Bansal received a big show of support in Chandigarh. Since morning, Congressmen came in droves at his residence. Bansal, who usually turned up late for such meetings, was on time.
But things took a serious turn when a mediaperson asked him about the companies owned by his family.
"I am not here to give you the definition of my family. You come inside and I will tell you," he replied.
Following this, the Chandigarh Press Club issued a statement, saying, "He (mediaperson) has virtually been threatened… The press club demands an unconditional apology from Mr Bansal."
