Ravindra Gaekwad fly ban: Shiv Sena appealed Lok Sabha Speaker to take up this matter
MP Ravindra Gaekwad’s video of beating airline staffer has gone viral on social media in which he is threatening the crew member. He allegedly beat him up and threatened to throw him off board after he was asked to fly from economy class and not a business class for which he had the ticket. In response, Air India including private airlines banned Gaikwad from booking on their flights.
Shiv Sena had also raised the issue in Lok Sabha on Monday, urging Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to take up the flight ban with the government. Shiv Sena MP Anadrao Adsul guarded Gaikwad saying that the airline did not ban television actor Kapil Sharma for allegedly getting drunk and misbehaving on a flight.
