With a case slapped on him for his alleged misbehaviour with mediapersons, AAP Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann on Monday said he reacted in that manner after a journalist asked “irritating” questions. He also said he “respects” the media.
Punjab police have registered a case against Mann on the complaint that he and his supporters allegedly misbehaved with mediapersons at a rally in Bassi Pathana in Fatehgarh Sahib district on September 1.
On Monday, he was addressing ‘Badal Bhajao-Punjab Bachao’ rally at Mianpur village near here. Mann accused the ruling party Shiromani Akali Dal of trying to vitiate atmosphere by disturbing AAP rallies.
He said SAD workers had attacked AAP workers at Malout and police had “failed” to register case against miscreants. He said violence has no place in democracy.
