Kolkata, July 8: A delegation of Bharatiya Janta Party comprising of three Members of Parliament Meenakshi Lekhi, Om Mathur and Satyapal Singh was detained by the West Bengal Police when the delegation tried to move to violence-hit area Bashirhat in West Bengal. After a brief argument, the MPs were taken to Kolkata Airport Police Station. Resisting to stopping of the vehicles, BJP MP Om Mathur said, “Hum saansad hain pata hai aapko? Privilege motion aa jaayega to aap mar jaaoge.”[Do you know we are Members of Parliament? You shall see consequences once Privilege Motion is moved].
