The Lok Sabha on Friday was adjourned till Monday after the issue of the “viral video” uploaded by AAP MP Bhagwant Mann was raised in the lower house of the parliament.

Bhagwant MannĀ filmed a video entering Parliament by crossing several security layers and posted it on social media.

The lawmakers termed his act as a security breach.

Thirteen people have laid down their lives for security of Parliament once. I know the matter is a serious one and I understand that appropriate action must be taken. I will see to it,” said Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.

Mann was summoned by the Speaker for the video, sources said.

There were protests in the House by all political parties.

The Aam Aadmi Party MP on Thursday shot a video clip of the journey from his residence to Parliament House, including going past the various security pickets, and uploaded it on the social media, drawing flak from various quarters for putting the security of Parliament House in peril.
