Delhi, 29 Dec: Member of Parliament from Sangrur and Senior Aam Aadmi Party, Bhagwant Mann has always been in center of controversies ever since his political career started. In another controversial video going viral on internet, he is apparently seen drunk and unable to control himself while having dinner.
Bhagwant Mann who is A.A.P’s candidate against Sukhbir Singh Badal, The Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab, was accussed of attending last rites of a person while being drunk some months ago.
Harinder Singh Khalsa, who represents Fatehgarh Sahib in Lok Sabha and has been suspended by the AAP, moved a written request to Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan a few months back. “It is torturous to sit next to a drunk Mann,” he wrote. “I am a Sikh who comes to Parliament after performing prayer. It hurts my religious sentiments to smell liquor from the adjoining seat. I feel nauseating,” said Khalsa, who takes seat 495, while Mann occupies 496.
“I was forced to write to the speaker as last resort, after hoping Mann would kick his habit,” said the MP, who has raised the issue publicly before. Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh levelled the same allegation and, earlier, sacked AAP leader Yogendra Yadav had told the media that Mann would even attend the party meetings drunk.
