Taking serious note of AAP Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann's 'beggar remark', the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has asked AAP national convener and Delhi chief minister to rein in party's MP from Sangrur.BJP National Secretary Tarun Chugh condemned the statement of Bhagwant Mann made yesterday during a press conference at Chandigarh. Chugh said that an arrogant Mann has lost his mental balance and started insulting common people from the weaker sections who were the beneficiaries of welfare schemes initiated by SAD-BJP government. He said that AAP MP has by this way insulted over 45 percent of the population of the state. He said it was painful as well as shameful that Mann called people 'beggars' and other senior leaders of his party didn't object to his utterances.Terming Mann's statement as unfortunate he said that a party which claims to represent the common man was insulting them for availing the benefits under the welfare schemes run by their own government.
Chugh said there was nothing new in it and all the governments have been initiating and implementing schemes for the welfare of common people as their commitment and the duty towards the weaker sections of the society. Providing Atta-Daal at subsidized rates, giving Shagun to Dalit girls at the time of their marriage, gifting cycles to school students under Mai Bhago Scheme and various other schemes have been designed to provide much-sought relief to the people who badly require it but don't afford it. Reminding people of Bhagwant Mann's blunder of visiting a 'Gurmat Samagam' in an inebriated state and his anti-national misadventure of making and uploading a video of the entire process and route to enter parliament, Chugh said not only Bhagwant Mann, but the entire top AAP leadership has committed mistakes which were unpardonable.He said publishing photograph of Golden Temple on party's Youth Manifesto with a broom and comparing party's manifesto with Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the holy Gita and the Bible were the most condemnable acts but the AAP has not learnt from its mistakes.
