Kejriwal evades question on Bhagwant Mann

Mota Samadhiyala (Guj): AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal today refused to answer a question on his party’s MP Bhagwant Mann who landed in trouble for filming the Parliament complex and sharing it on social media.

When a reporter asked for his comment, he evaded the question.

Kejriwal was on one-day visit here to meet the family members of Dalit youths who were beaten up by a vigilante group for allegedly skinning a cow on July 11.

In the nearly 12 minute video that Mann shared live on Facebook, he filmed his vehicle crossing security barricades and entering Parliament yesterday.

Both houses of Parliament were rocked by uproar over his act as MPs across party lines demanded action against him.

While Mann said he was ready for any probe after tendering an unconditional apology, AAP rallied behind him, saying BJP was trying to hype up a “non-issue” to deflect attention from attacks on Dalits in Gujarat.
