Cong slams govt for lifting flight ban on Sena MP Gaikwad Cong slams govt for lifting flight ban on Sena MP Gaikwad

Despite the "regret" letter, Air India maintains that the no-fly ban against the MP was still in place as all three unions of the airlinessupported the ban. The MP, who was unapologetic about his actions, even boasting about it on national TV, claimed it was the officer's threat to complain about it to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that made him lose his cool.

In a letter to the AI chairman and managing director Ashwani Lohani, the association has said that a decision by either the Ministry of Civil Aviation or Parliament to lift the ban will affect the morale of the employees. Air India, IndiGo and SpiceJet have cancelled tickets booked for Gaikwad several times since March 24.

The security of Air India's employee is paramount and it can't take any chance over this, the source said.

Ravindra Gaikwad made national headlines after footage emerged in March of the Shiv Sena politician repeatedly striking a steward with his sandal aboard an Air India flight.

Later, Gaikwad booked seven air tickets but all his tickets were cancelled by the respective airlines.

The Sena MP had abused and assaulted a 60-year-old duty manager of Air India with slippers over not being able to fly business class despite having boarded an all-economy Pune-New Delhi flight.

Gaikwad had written a regret letter to the civil aviation minister yesterday over the "unfortunate incident". "We will not attend the NDA meeting on April 10 if the travel ban on Gaikwad is not revoked", Shiv Sena's Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said, emphasizing that it was an instruction from party chief Uddhav Thackeray.

As Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad on Thursday defended himself and apologised in the Lok Sabha for the assault on an airline staff, an ugly situation arose as two Union Ministers got involved in heated exchanges and nearly came to blows. The only video shared so far of the assault shows Air India employees pleading with Mr Gaikwad to abort the beating he was inflicting.

The ministry accepted Gaikwad's "regret" letter issued to aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju on Thursday in which he had said that his earlier behaviour should not be seen as an indicator that such things will happen again. "As Shiv Sena has taken law in their hands, we need to stop and show them that they are people above them too, who can take control", Tyagi told ANI. Gaiwkad apologised for hurting the dignity of the Parliament yesterday, but refused to apologise to the staffer he allegedly attacked. "I have nothing to add here", Raju said. He also pulled my collar and pushed me. "His ticket was immediately cancelled", he said. "Terrorists can book tickets using fake names", he further said.
