Team Anna member Kiran Bedi on Thursday condemned the attack on Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar but said one should analyse why such things happen to public functionaries.

“While condemning assault on public functionaries, (one) needs to analyse why is this happening and what must done to contain this...

“Assault on public functionaries calls for serious reflection at all levels of society including media forums,” Ms. Bedi said in a tweet.

At public function in New Delhi, Mr. Pawar was slapped by a youth who claimed he was angry with corruption and price rise.

Mr. Pawar was slapped by Harvinder Singh, a transporter in his thirties who had assaulted former Telecom Minister Sukh Ram outside Rohini Court on Saturday after he was sentenced in a corruption case.
