The AAP leader had gone to a bhog ceremony of the two men killed in police firing, but after a former granthi realised he (Mann) was drunk, he was asked to leave.
I feel Mann should not be allowed to share any panthic stage in future and he should apologise to the whole of Punjab for this shameful act," Jagtar Singh, the former granthi of Darbar Sahib, Amritsar was quoted as saying in a Indian Express report.
He added in the daily, "Had I announced this from the stage, the crowd would have attacked him and the whole atmosphere would have become tense. So, I told him to leave at once and he, too, did not argue with us."
"It is a conspiracy against me. One can easily imagine who are the persons behind it. The whole party is pained after the incident and the Delhi Chief Minister (Arvind Kejriwal) also came yesterday to share grief with the families," Bhagwant Mann was quoted as saying in the daily.
