Airlines ban entry of Shiv Sena MP Gaikwad

Posted March 25, 2017

The MP was booked on a 5pm flight, but the airline, which along with other private carriers has barred Gaikwad from flying with them, ha cancelled the ticket.

Gaikwad was scheduled to fly back from Delhi to Pune on an Air Indian flight but the airline cancelled his return ticket as well.

Perhaps it isn't unexpected that Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaekwad from the Osmanabad constituency of Maharashtra has been brazening it out (video above) after assaulting an Air India staffer (video below).

A Shiv Sena Member of Parliament assaulted an Air India staffer "25 times" with a slipper, after he was asked to deplane from a flight.

Delhi Police said they had registered a preliminary case against Gaikwad on Friday.

Trump Jr tweeted , quoting the headline: "Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan ". The motivation and identity of the attacker are unknown.

After he thrashed an Air India manager on a plane - he pleasured in detailing "I hit him 25 times with my slipper" and demanded that the 60-year-old, who he almost pushed off the ladder used to disembark the plane, should apologize to him- the Sena chose to stand by its man.

According to The Guardian, the politician was identified as Ravindra Gaikwad, an MP in India's lower house for the Hindu nationalist Shiv Sena party.

"I hit him 25 times with my sandals".

After thrashing the Air India employee, the Shiv Sena parliamentarian even bragged about in when local TV channels sought his reaction to the incident. As the MP wanted to travel on this flight, he was allotted the seat in the first row itself, given there was no Business Class on this flight. I will file a defamation case against the CMD (Chairman & Managing Director) and officers (of Air India) next week for bringing ignominy to me across the country by spreading false information against me, besides insulting me. "How can they not let me travel when I have a booking and I am their passenger".

Setting an example, in a rare step, the airlines along with Air India banned Gaikwad from immediate effect. I am not scared at all. So Duty Manager Sukumar Raman arrived on the jet to reason with him. I have been serving public and have also faced many who get irritated on such issues. The MP went on to say unapologetically that he hit the staffer because the latter misbehaved with him. "We have to see whether this action is within the framework of the law", Minister of State for Aviation Jayant Sinha told The Times of India.
