MELBOURNE – AAP MP Bhagwant Mann was recently attacked in Melbourne after a shoe was hurled at him by a Badal Supporter.
Bhagwant Mann had gone to Australia on a ‘thanksgiving tour’. Mann, who reached Melbourne Saturday morning, said, “It is due to overwhelming love and response from Australia that I am going there before results. I have taken permission from party for the tour.”
Mann was in the middle of his speech when a man, later identified as Pappa Sarpanch, hurled a shoe at him. In his LIVE Facebook video, the show hurler claimed that he attacked Bhagwant Mann because he was upset of him being drunk and visiting to Gurdwara.
Later he was taken over by AAP supporters and taken out the dinner function. He was later trolled by AAP supporters in social media.
Before leaving for Australia to attend volunteers meet, Mann also clarified that he will come back before March 11. Claiming that AAP is going to win Punjab, the MP in his message to NRIs stated that ‘once results are out, all Punjabis settled in different countries will be called back home by AAP.’
