Do you want to fly with the Goonda MP Mr. Gaikwad?
Last Thursday, Gaikwad hit a 60-year-old Air India staffer 25 times with his footwear on a Pune-Delhi flight. Not just that, he then bragged to reporters about it. "I hit him 25 times with my sandal," Gaikwad strutted.
Gaikwad had a business class ticket but the particular plane he was traveling on had only an economy class section. Enraged that he had to sit in economy, he beat up the AI staffer. And not only did he brag about assaulting the staffer, it also turned out he was told while reserving his ticket that the flight he's booking didn't have a business class section.
Gaikwad's party, the Shiv Sena, has defended him throughout since Thursday's episode. It alleged its MP was just reacting to being treated badly himself. It seems particularly peeved that all the airlines, and not just Air India, banned Gaikwad.
"It's illogical that the other four airlines also put Gaikwad on a no-fly list. He is not a criminal," said Manisha Kayande, Shiv Sena spokesperson, today. Six domestic carriers, including Air India, grounded Gaikwad, putting him on a 'no-fly list'. The other airlines were Indigo, SpiceJet, GoAir, Jet Airways and Vistara.
MP's from other parties including samajwadi Party and Congress came to the rescue of this MP and rather than condemning Mr Gaikwad, they demanded action against the Airline which was beyond anyone's imagination.
The rules are the same for everyone.Violence of any kind can be a disaster for airlines and can endanger a life of other co passengers. This MP is a serial offender and if let scot-free, could cause big harm in future, perhaps he will do the same in running flight therefore I request everyone to support this petition urging GOI not to revoke the ban and set an example.
