“This is a matter concerning security of Parliament. The matter must be discussed and action needs to be taken,”

“A joint committee under Lok Sabha Speaker was constituted after the 2001 Parliament attack and the current issue should also be referred to the same panel”

  • Sitaram Yechury (CPI-M)

  • Bhagwant Mann

“If the (Lok Sabha) speaker asks, then I am ready to apologize.”

“Is it illegal, inappropriate to post a video which shows procedure of how questions are taken up in Parliament during question hour. Did my video pose a security threat to Parliament? I will post a video again tomorrow; let me be served a notice’’. (JULY 21, 2016)
