Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lawmaker Bhagwant Mann, who is being probed by a parliamentary panel for an alleged breach of security by him, has said he has nothing to add to or alter in his earlier deposition.
Mann said he had written to the panel headed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Kirit Somaiya saying he is campaigning for the upcoming assembly elections in Punjab and should be given a few days notice to appear before it. The panel had requested him to appear before it this week.
“I will not water down my stand,” the Sangrur MP told Hindustan Times over phone from his home state where he is campaigning along with AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal.
“I will be there for the November 28 hearing,” Mann said.
Somaiya said Mann has to appear before the panel. “He was first requested to come... now he has been summoned,” he said.
Mann had, on the first day of the monsoon session, shot a video of his journey to Parliament that showed the location of security pickets in the high-security zone and put it out on social media.
