Former IPS officer Kiran Bedi, facing flak for her critical remarks of parliamentarians, on Monday refused to comment on the breach of privilege motion moved against her saying she is yet to receive any notice.
"I will respond to it when I receive it. I have neither received nor been informed of it. I cannot go by news reports," Bedi told PTI.
Members in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have given privilege notices against Bedi and actor Om Puri for using "derogatory and defamatory" language against politicians and the matter is under consideration of the presiding officers.
During Anna Hazare's agitation at Ramlila Grounds on the Lokpal issue, Bedi and Puri had targeted politicians.
Bedi accused politicians of wearing "several masks" at the same time, drawing the ire of MPs from both Houses.
On Sunday, Bedi had defended her controversial comments and said she does not regret the outburst and the theatrics that put them in bad light.
She also said her action reflected an outpouring of anger and concern and that she was only reacting to the kind of situation on that day when Hazare was on the 11th day of his fast.
Bedi had pulled a scarf from the neck of a young activist on stage, wrapped her head with it and proceeded to mock MPs.
