Parliament considering privilege motions against Bedi, Puri
New Delhi, Aug 29: Anna Hazare's close aide Kiran Bedi and actor Om Puri face privilege motions for mocking at and passing caustic comments against lawmakers.
The notices were filed in both houses of parliament Monday even as Om Puri apologised for calling MPs "anpadh" (uneducated) and "nalayak" (incompetent) at the Ramlila Maidan during Hazare's fast last week.
Bedi expressed no regrets for poking fun at politicians who she alleged don "several masks" to deceive people.
MPs in both Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha have given notices against the two for the "derogatory and defamatory" comments.
Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar said she was considering a privilege motion against Om Puri and Bedi.
