Inviting trouble for himself and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Bhagwant Mann on July 21, live-streamed a video on his Facebook page.
While there is nothing wrong with posting a Facebook video, what got Mann into trouble was the fact that he did it right from the Parliament complex.
Reacting to Mann’s video, BJP and its allies have decided to ask for a “privilege motion” to be passed against Mann as they believe he “endangered the security” of the Parliament by his act. Though Mann initially denied the fact that he did anything wrong he latter added:
Mann is AAP’s lawmaker from Punjab and well known stand-up comedian.
His action is now being accused of compromising the security of Parliament as it broke various layers of screening and checks.

On July 21, Mann had said that his intention was not to endanger Parliament security but rather show people in his constituency a glimpse of Parliament and its functioning.
The video start’s from Mann’s car where his vehicle crosses various security barricades, till he enter’s a room in Parliament where questions for Monsoon Session are being sorted out.
The video has now been removed
