Kiran Bedi's theatrics on Ramlila stage

New Delhi: Team Anna member Kiran Bedi Tuesday said that she is not apologetic for her remarks made against parliamentarians who have moved a privilege notice against her.

"I stand by whatever I said. If I get the notice, I will not be able to say sorry. Instead of saying sorry, I want to show a bigger mirror to these parliamentarian," said Bedi.

"The truth has to be said, which was needed, and I stand by it. You should see what is happening in the parliament. Slippers were exchanged in Rajasthan assembly," she said.

The notices for privilege motions against Bedi and actor Om Puri, who called MPs "anpadh" (uneducated) and "nalayak" (incompetent), were filed in both houses of parliament Aug 29.

At the Ramlila Maidan during social activist Anna Hazare's fast last week, Bedi had wrapped a scarf around her face and alleged that MPs wore different masks to hide their real faces.

"They say one thing inside the house and another thing outside. You remove one mask, then you find another one, and then another," she said.

Bedi expressed no regrets for poking fun at parliamentarians who she alleged don "several masks" to deceive people.

Puri, however, later apologised and said he was ready to face any action by MPs. "If they are still angry with me, I will take whatever punishment they give me."
