Bhagwant Mann seeks apology from media

Two days after a case was registered against AAP MP Bhagwant Mann for allegedly misbehaving with mediapersons at Bassi Pathana, he today sought an apology during a rally held in Balachaur constituency.
Mann, while addressing a gathering in favour of Brig (retd) Raj Kumar, said “Our party’s fight is against Badals and not against media. I apologise from the media fraternity for my remarks in Bassi Pathana. I never wanted to offend the media and it just happened inadvertently. Media has always supported me. But I somehow got irritated because of personal remarks made against me upon my arrival there.”
Four days ago at Bassi Pathana, Mann had told AAP supporters not to believe in media reports as they were planted by rivals. This led to press clubs across the state boycotting him.
Meanwhile, during his programme at Sultanpur Lodhi this evening, AAP workers supporting former state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur showed black flags to the Sangrur MP and burnt his effigy.
