Aam Aadmi Party MP Bhagwant Mann, who shot on Thursday a video of his journey to Parliament that showed security pickets and their locations at the high-security zone, may be in for some trouble.
Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan is likely to seek an explanation from Mann, who drew criticism for uploading the 11-minute clip on social media that raised questions over the safety of lawmakers.
“She (the speaker) has taken cognisance of the matter. On Friday, she will also call the security cell of Parliament security division to seek their views...No one is expected to reveal the sensitive security arrangements of Parliament complex,” said a senior official of the Lok Sabha secretariat.
Mann was unperturbed by the criticism and said that he will upload another video. “Has Parliament come under danger...?” Mann asked, rejecting concerns over security.
The AAP leader said he wanted to show the public how questions for Zero Hour are submitted before the day’s proceedings begin.
“Is it wrong to show to public how their issues are raised in Parliament? They have elected us and they have a right to know all this,” Mann said.
BJP’s Meenakshi Lekhi said: “It needs to be verified if it was an act of foolishness or was done under influence of some agencies.” (with agency inputs)
