Fatehgarh Sahib(Punjab), (PTI) AAP MP Bhagwant Mann today targeted the print media, asking volunteers not to read newspapers, alleging influence of money in publication of news.
At a party rally here, Mann not only allegedly misbehaved with media persons after arriving four hours behind schedule, but also asked party volunteers not to read newspapers.
Mann when confronted by the media for the reason behind the delay in reaching the rally venue at Bassi Pathana near here got infuriated.
Mann shot back to say, “we don’t need any media reporting of AAP’s functions.”
He also asked workers of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to “throw” media persons out of the venue. Some workers also allegedly manhandled media persons after protesting their presence.
The workers pushed media persons and tried to snatch their cameras, police said.
Bassi Pathana MLA Justice (retd) Nirmal Singh strongly condemned Mann for misbehaving with media during AAP rally.
