The News Minute | December 14, 2014 | 12.09 pm IST "Priyanka Gandhi is like my sister. I did not view her photo with any bad intention," Vijay Karnataka quoted BJP MLA Prabhu Chauhan who was speaking at a press conference in Aurad in Bidar district on Saturday. "It was wrong to have used mobile in the House. I apologise to the six crore people of Karnataka for my behaviour. However, I felt bad for being suspended from the Assembly for a day," the newspaper quoted him.. "A small mistake was politicized and blown out of proportion and I was insulted. I had questioned CM how is it fair to cancel the chit funds of 20,000 people in Aurad. I asked a fellow legislator to take the mobile and go but he had not taken it. Meanwhile, the phone buzzed and I picked it up immediately. After looking at the Modi's image, I was reading the shloka beside Priyanka Gandhi's image. This is the mistake I did," he said. "I felt bad that the party earned bad name because of me. Later MLA Ashoka Kheny advised me that I had not committed a big mistake. If it wasn't for him, I do not know what would have happened to me," the newspaper quoted.
