In yet another reminder of the VVIP culture, Trinamool Congress (TMC) Rajya Sabha MP Dola Sen on Friday delayed the Air India flight from Delhi to Kolkata by 30 minutes after refusing to abide by the security protocols.
As per sources, Air India requested Sen to shift her senior citizen mother’s seat from the emergency exit, but the MP refused and created a ruckus.
This is not the first time when Indian politicians have delayed flights.
Recently, Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad also delayed Air India flight for 45 minutes and even attracted controversy for hitting the staffer of the national carrier over the issue of seating arrangement.
Almost eight airlines imposed a ban on Gaikwad for his unwarranted act. Air India, however, lifted the ban today after he apologized for the incident
