He said he should also be allowed to pose some questions to the Prime Minister. He said if that was not possible, the Speaker could get the “derogatory” remarks expunged. 

Mann also suggested that if the remarks could not be expunged, then he be allowed to approach the Privileges Committee of Lok Sabha. 

Taking on his critics, Modi had said in Lok Sabha, “I generally tell people ‘ghee piyo’…but if Bhagwant Mann were to tell people, he will ask them to drink something else.” 


Mann has been a strident critic of Modi, openly mocking him at public rallies.
