DEFENCE Minister Harjit Sajjan, who was caught on video spitting out cherry stones from his vehicle, has apologized for his mistake.
Here is a rough translation of what goes on in the video in Punjabi:
The guy who confronts him says ‘you are a very important officer … you are an educated person .. I am very shocked at your behaviour … If it had been an ordinary person then I would have ignored this.”
When Sajjan tries to make an excuse by saying that he came to buy meat, the guy gets more angry and says: “This is an East Indian meat shop and it is closed .. you have a bag (packet) in your vehicle – you could have put the (cherry) stones in that … there is a sign on the shop that it is closed and you are saying you came here to get meat. I have been here for 17 years and I have never seen you come here.”
