Prashant Bhushan receives breach of privilege notice

Prashanth-bhushanNew Delhi: Team Anna member, Prashant Bhushan received a breach of privileged notice for using derogatory words against Parliamentarians. Mr Prashant Bhushan said, “the notice is totally unjustified and speaking the truth in public interest does not amount to breach of privilege“. “If speaking truth in public interest amounts to breach of privilege, then time has come for the country to review the whole notion of Parliamentary privileges,” he added.

Earlier privilege notice was filed against Om Puri and Kiran Bedi.“If I get a notice, I would say I am sorry I will not be able to say sorry. If I get an opportunity I will go before the Committee and will show a bigger mirror to Parliament,” former IPS officer Kiran Bedi had said. The privilege notice against Kiran Bedi came as she accused politicians of wearing “several masks” at the same time, drawing the ire of MPs from both Houses.

Om Puri however had apologized before the media and stated that he would like to explain the matter before the parliamentarians.
