The war between the BJP and the AAP shows no signs of ebbing, instead it is getting more bitter and personal. Once again, AAP leader Sanjay Singh has hit out at the BJP-led government at the Centre for initiating a probe against AAP MP Bhagwant Mann for alleged breach of Parliament’s security.

“The suspension of Mann from Parliament till August 3 by Modi government is like strangling the common man in a democracy,” Sanjay Singh said.

“Was allowing (Pakistani intelligence agency) ISI to probe (the) Pathankot terror attack (an act of) patriotism by” Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sanjay Singh asked in a tweet.

Mann, an AAP MP from Punjab, triggered a row last week after he shot a video of his journey from home to Parliament House, including past various security points, and posted it on the social media.

Political parties called it a breach of Parliament’s security and sought action against him. Mann later apologised to the Lok Sabha Speaker and removed the video from Facebook.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has formed a nine-member panel to probe Mann’s act.
