Om Puri regrets his rant against MPs
Actor Om Puri angered many members of Indian parliament when he called them “anpad”, “ganwaar” (illiterates, bumpkins) while addressing the crowds at Ramlila Maidan last week.

Many feel that Om Puri went overboard in displaying his support to Team Anna’s fight against corruption when he made a rousing address to thousands of people from the very same stage where Anna Hazare, the proponent of non-violence, was sitting on fast.

Puri had said: “Yeh (MPs) anpadh hain, inka kya background hai? Aadhe se zyaada MP ganwaar hain... (They are uneducated, what's their background? More than half of the MPs are illiterate).”

MPs from different parties felt that Puri’s remarks were “derogatory and defamatory”. In fact, earlier on Monday, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar said she was considering a privilege motion against the actor.

Realizing that his comments have angered MPs, Om Puri said he is ready to apologize.

“I just said two words - anpadh and ganwaar - in the heat of the moment. If they find this objectionable, I am ready to apologise,” Puri said.
