Another Gaikwad in the making: TDP MP barred from all airlines after misbehaving with Indigo staff
It seems that the lesson that the airlines wanted to teach our MPs by barring Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad from flying for misbehaving onboard an Air India flight has failed to detract this boorish and arrogant coterie called Members of Parliament.

In another similar incident, an MP from Telugu Desam Party (TDP) misbehaved with the staff of IndiGo Airline.

According to reports, the incident occurred on Thursday morning at the Visakhapatnam Airport when TDP MP Diwakar Reddy created chaos after being denied a boarding pass for not showing up on time. Reddy hurled abuses at the IndiGo staff and also damaged a printer belonging to the airline.

Reddy had reached the airport just 28 minutes before the flight while DGCA rules clearly state that the boarding at check-in counters should close 45 minutes before the flight is scheduled for take-off.

Surprisingly, despite Reddy's rash behaviour, he was allowed to board the flight due to the intervention of Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju, who is also from the TDP.

The TDP MP has now been barred from flying by IndiGo, Air India, Jet Airways, Spicejet, GoAir, Vistara and AirAsia.

Even last October, Reddy had created drama at the Gannavaram airport in Vijayawada by venting his anger at Air India staffers.
