TDP leader creates ruckus at Visakhapatnam airport

15 Juin 2017

The MP reached the airport for going to Hyderabad by the Indigo airlines but arrived late, after the counter issuing boarding pass was closed. On Wednesday, Maharashtra Raju Shetti missed a Jet Airways flight to Delhi when sat in the lounge and did not hear the boarding announcement. Apparently, the MP entered the ticketing corner of IndiGo supposedly damaged some furniture and a printer. However, no such information was provided to the IndiGo staff on Thursday.

In yet another incident of abuse of power, a TDP parliamentarian from Anantapur, JC Diwakar Reddy created a ruckus at the Visakhapatnam airport and damaged property after being denied a boarding pass on Thursday.

No deal yet between UK Conservatives and DUP to back PM May
Next Monday has also been scheduled for the launch of Brexit talks between the Government and the other 27 European Union nations. That would give May enough votes to pass her legislative agenda through parliament and govern, albeit with a wafer-thin majority.

This is not Reddy's first time throwing a fit at an airport. He demanded his boarding pass and when he was told that the counter had already closed, fretted and fumed against them and threw the printer out. The MP - who is known for his temper and has earlier also got involved in a similar incident at another airport previous year - was reportedly accommodated on the same flight which got delayed in the process and left after its departure time of 8.10 am on Thursday. "Reddy expressed his annoyance and soon raged against the staff using aggressive and abusive behaviour". "Safety and security of passengers, crew and the aircraft is the top priority and it can not be compromised". This followed Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad's misbehaviour with an Air India employee in March. But he reached just 28 minutes before the scheduled departure, according to the airline. The MP picked up an argument with the staff. It was alleged that he assaulted the airport manager.

Gaikwad was angry as he was not offered a business-class seat in a flight from the western city of Pune to Indian capital, which had only economy-class seats. This will carry a flying ban of two years or more without limit.
