A Lok Sabha panel instituted to look into a case of breach of security said that Aam Aadmi Party MLA Bhagwant Mann’s video had exposed the Parliament’s security system. Last week, the legislator had streamed a video from inside Parliament for which he received massive criticism. Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had set up the nine-member inquiry panel and also told Mann not to attend the Parliament session till the committee submitted its report.

The AAP member’s video had shown several parts of Parliament and its security arrangements. Mann had earlier apologised for the video, but on Tuesday demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi also be brought under the purview of the inquiry panel for breaching national security by allowing Pakistan officials into the Pathankot Air Force base in March. The base was attacked by terrorists on January 2.

Mann said, “The issue is being blown out of proportion and politicised. I have never seen the Akali Dal, the BJP and the Congress joining forces on any other issue. But they are on the same platform against me…. now I am being compared with Afzal Guru and Richard Headley as if I am an extremist and as if I have endangered the entire Parliament.”
