Arvind Kejriwal hits back, demands copies of offending tape
In a letter to Rajya Sabha Secretariat Director Mukuk Pande, Kejriwal said he would be able to provide a detailed response only after receiving the tapes and transcript of his speeches.
"I have carefully gone through the letter/notice and all annexures thereto. The words, however, alleged to have been said by me and found to be 'derogatory' by the Hon'ble Members of Parliament have not been intimated to me in the said letter/notice," he said.
Kejriwal was served a notice on Saturday, becoming the third Team Anna member to receive breach of privilege notices for making "derogatory" remarks against Parliamentarians during Hazare's agitation in Ramlila Maidan last month.
Earlier, Kiran Bedi and Prashant Bhushan had received privilege notices.
"I would urge you to kindly provide me copies of the tapes of my speech along with the transcripts and indicate the word used by me in those speeches, which offended the MPs," he said in the letter to Pande.
