set up a nine-member panel dominated by the BJP to probe the alleged breach of Parliament security by AAP’s Bhagwant Mann and "advised" him not to attend the House till the issue is resolved Upset by the decision Mann and the Aam Aadmi Party termed it a "political conspiracy" to malign the AAP’s image Mann said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should also be asked to appear before the committee as he allowed Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI to probe the terror attack on the IAF base at Pathankot File image of Bhagwant Mann CNN-News18 Addressing the Lok Sabha as soon as it met after a weekend break Mahajan said taking audio video footage of security zones in Parliament by Punjab’s Sangrur MP Mann on 21 July and putting it up on social networking sites put the "security of the Parliament in peril" "I have decided to constitute a nine-member Inquiry Committee to probe this incident and submit its report The Inquiry Committee shall inquire into the serious security implications and related aspects arising out of the conduct of the audio visual recording" Mahajan said Mann has been asked to appear before the panel by 1030 am on 26 July and make his submission The Speaker said the panel should submit its report by 3 August and till then Mann was "advised" not to attend the session "The Committee is requested to examine the matter expeditiously and is authorized to follow its own procedure The report of the Committee will be presented to the House for consideration" Mahajan said "In view of the seriousness of the matter Mann is advised not to attend the sittings of the House until a decision is taken in the matter" Describing Parliament as the "sanctum sanctorum" of democracy Mahajan recalled that on 13 December 2001 security personnel had sacrificed their lives for protecting Parliament and after that the entire security system was reviewed and overhauled Therefore the "act of the member" of making an audio visual recording of the security checks inside Parliament and posting it on social media has "put the security of the Parliament in peril" she said Mahajan said she had consulted leaders of all political parties and everyone supported her on this issue The nine-member panel is headed by Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirit Somaiya and includes Anandrao Adsul (Shiv Sena) Meenakshi Lekhi Satya Pal Singh (both BJP) B Mahtab (BJD) Ratna De Nag (Trinamool Congress) Thota Narasimhan (TDP) KC Venugopal (Congress) and P Venugopal (AIADMK) The panel has also been asked to "suggest remedial measures" so that such episodes are not repeated Mann who was not in the house when Speaker announced her decision looked upset when reporters sought his comment "When the Prime Minister allowed Pakistan’s security agency inside the Pathankot base was not the country’s security put at stake" he asked and demanded that Modi should also be asked to appear before the committee "He should also be suspended from Parliament" he added Terming the Speaker’s decision "one sided" Mann said: "It was a political conspiracy to malign AAP as these parties are scared because we are going to get a majority in the Punjab assembly polls" He reiterated that his intention vis-a-vis the live video was not to jeopardise Parliament’s security "I wanted to make an educational video I wanted to make the people aware how their grievances are selected through lucky draw" he said AAP leader Sanjay Singh defended Mann and blamed the central government for the action taken against the MP "The suspension of Mann from Parliament is like strangling the common man in a democracy" he said Written by Inder Malhotra | Updated: November 13 2014 10:31 am The wide world knows that Nehru was a strikingly handsome man with a disarming smile who exuded a magic charm that swiftly won over individuals and crowds alike Related News In a series on Jawaharlal Nehru it does not seem fair to concentrate only on his role as the builder of modern and democratic India during the 17 long and formative years when he was the country’s first prime minister There ought to be at least one human touch at some stage After deep thought I have chosen an aspect that is discussed rather rarely The wide world knows that Nehru was a strikingly handsome man with a disarming smile who exuded a magic charm that swiftly won over individuals and crowds alike In the words of one of his earliest biographers Michael Brecher there was hardly any difference between Nehru’s photographs at 20 and 60 Evidently his face caught up with his age only after the shattering effect of the brief but brutal border war with China Surprisingly even Acharya Kripalani once said: “It is difficult to compete with the prime minister For he is a darling of the masses and to women he is Prince Charming” Also Nehru had been a widower since 1936 when his long-ailing wife Kamala died in a sanatorium in Switzerland Moreover as he often admitted regretfully well before her passing he had become so busy with politics and rushing from one end of the country to the other that he neglected his wife and other members of the family His loneliness had to have certain consequences and that is where Lord and Lady Mountbatten come in They had stayed in India for no more than 15 months in 1947-48 But they especially Edwina Mountbatten had instantly developed a warm cordial and lasting rapport with Nehru Probably she filled a void in his life In any case during the 12 years that she lived after leaving India Edwina came to Delhi twice a year and stayed at the prime minister’s house For his part whenever in Britain Nehru saw her over the weekend at the Mountbatten country house Broadlands On one occasion the British press published a photograph of Edwina opening the door to Nehru clad in a nightgown In the circumstances is it any surprise that “an enduring love affair” between the two has been widely written on Hundreds of Nehru’s letters to Edwina have been published; hers to him seem to have disappeared Other books on the subject of women in Nehru’s life — one of them written by MO Mathai at one time his most trusted and powerful aide who had to be sacked for a lot of wrongdoing in 1958 — speak of his protracted romance with Padmaja Naidu a daughter of the nation’s “nightingale” Sarojini Naidu who was a poet as well as president of the Congress Khushwant Singh is one of the many authors who insist that Nehru also had a torrid affair with beautiful Shraddha Mata whom many worshipped as a “godwoman” On the other hand we must take note of what Amrita Sher-Gil — an Indian artist so great that even though she died at a very young age a road in Delhi has been named after her — is reported to have said Amrita herself had had numerous affairs of which to her credit she never made a secret One of her partners the famous British writer and journalist Malcolm Muggeridge has written about the “animal intensity” of her personality Many had questioned her about Nehru Her answer always was that she would stay away from him because “Jawaharlal is too handsome and too good a man” However a love affair lasting or fleeting is one thing and a deep friendly relationship between a man and a woman without a trace of sensuousness quite another In Nehru’s case I witnessed it at the end of the first recital of the melody queen MS Subbulakshmi that I heard in Delhi in the early 1950s After cheering her wildly the audience had begun to disperse when Nehru who was present throughout ascended the stage He held MS’s hand said that he hadn’t words enough to praise her performance and asked: “Compared with you what am I A mere prime minister without an iota of your talent” He treated Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay and some other women friends the same way The masterpiece on the subject however is narrated by John Kenneth Galbraith America’s economic guru and his country’s ambassador to India in the early 1960s At one time the famous and highly attractive Hollywood actress Angie Dickinson was in Delhi and staying at the ambassador’s residence Constantly she told her host that her visit to India would be pointless if she couldn’t meet Nehru So the ambassador sent a note to the prime minister asking whether he could spare some time to see Dickinson To his surprise he received a phone call immediately telling him to bring the lady along right away While ushering them into the PM’s office the aide whispered to Galbraith that Nehru had only 20 minutes Actually the meeting lasted nearly two hours with the prime minister and the star absorbed in their lively conversation As Angie and Galbraith were about to leave Nehru asked her: “Does it ever happen that a role you play briefly becomes a part of your personality” Laughingly she replied: “I hope not Mr Prime Minister because the last role I played was that of a prostitute” Let me round this up with what happened when in November 1961 Nehru visited John F Kennedy at the White House He was very tired and somewhat distracted and therefore talks between the two leaders were desultory Kennedy — who in his inaugural address had spoken of the “soaring idealism of Nehru” — was disappointed Arthur J Schlesinger Harvard historian and Kennedy’s aide at the time commented that the prime minister had brightened up “only after the first lady came in” JFK:
