Kiran Bedi's theatrics on Ramlila stage

New Delhi: Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan Saturday said he has received a breach of privilege notice for his remarks against MPs and will respond to it. He further added that he stands by his statement.

"I have received the notice and will respond to it. I stand by my statement and don't think it amounts to breach of privilege," Bhushan told a TV channel.

He was served notice for alleging that members of parliament take bribes to pass laws. He has been asked to file a reply by Sep 14.

Former top cop Kiran Bedi, another aide of activist Anna Hazare, also faces a privilege motion for her remarks against parliamentarians. Addressing the Ramlila Maidan gathering, she accused politicians of wearing "several masks" at the same time, drawing the ire of MPs in both houses of parliament.

Affirming that she stood by whatever she had said, Bedi said Friday: "If I get a notice, I would say I am sorry I will not be able to say sorry. If I get an opportunity, I will go before the Committee and will show a bigger mirror to Parliament."

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