New Delhi: In unprecedented scenes in parliament, a Shiv Sena lawmaker today went charging at Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathy Raju, who had firmly refused to intervene and end the flying ban on Ravindra Gaikwad.
Ministers were seen shielding Mr Raju in the Lok Sabha as Sena MP Anant Geete appeared to come at him.
“No flight will take off from Mumbai,” Mr Geethe was heard shouting.
The situation rapidly escalated just moments after Ravindra Gaikwad presented his version of the Air India incident in parliament and said he had only shoved the employee when he insulted MPs. “I apologise for my behavior but not to the Air India official who abused and manhandled me,” Mr Gaikwad said as his party demanded the ban cancelled.
