MP Bhagwant Mann has come forward to speak out about the exact set of events that lead to the arguments at Manmeet Alisher's cremation ceremony. He alleged that a section of media is trying to defame him.
Aam Admi Party’s Punjab convener Gurpreet ‘Ghuggi’ has defended MP Bhagwant Mann’s statement.
The controversy was triggered after Bhagwant Mann was seen having arguments with one of Shiromani Akali Dal’s leader while sitting next to Manmeet's mortal remains.
MP Bhagwant Mann came to Alisher village to pay his respect to the departed soul while this controversy erupted.
It is a noted fact that Manmeet Alisher was one of Aam Admy Party’s volunteers in Australia. His elder brother Amit Alisher is a prominent member of Shiromani Akali Dal.
