Aam Aadmi Party lawmaker Bhagwant Mann on 1 September targetted the print media and reportedly asked party workers to "throw" media persons out of the venue at a party rally in Punjab's Fatehgarh Sahib.
The AAP leader not only allegedly misbehaved with media persons after arriving four hours behind schedule, but also told party volunteers to stop reading newspapers.
He asked volunteers not to read newspapers, alleging he influence of money in news publication.
When confronted by the media for the reason for the delay in reaching the rally venue, an infuriated Mann said,, "We don't need any media reporting of AAP's functions."
Some workers also allegedly manhandled media persons after protesting their presence. The workers allegedly pushed media persons and tried to snatch their cameras, the police said.
The MLA for that constituency Justice (retd) Nirmal Singh strongly condemned Bhagwant Mann for misbehaving with the media during the Aam Aadmi Party rally.
