Watch video: Woman shouts at Union Minister KJ Alphons after her flight gets delayed due to VIP movement
In a video that has gone viral, a woman can be seen shouting and quarrelling with Union Minister KJ Alphons on Wednesday at the Imphal airport over the delay of her flight bound for Patna, allegedly because of VVIP protocols being followed by the concerned authorities at the airport.

According to media reports, the woman was on her way to attend her brother's funeral when her flight got delayed at the airport in Manipur's capital Imphal due to arrival of the President's flight.

Lashing out at Alphons after her flight got delayed, the woman confronted the Minister, angrily narrating her ordeal.

Soon after the video went viral, Alphons, who was waiting for the President's flight at the Imphal airport, clarified, "I don't think there is any controversy at all. I saw this lady in distress & I went up to talk to her, she said she has to attend a funeral in Patna, I told her that there is a protocol when President is landing no flight can take off," ANI reported.

The Minister also added that such security related protocols are carried out only for the President and the Prime Minister of India.

"Apart from Prime Minister and President there is no protocol for any minister. She (woman in video) had to talk to someone, it is fine with me that she vented her anger on me." 

"If you think protocol associated with the President should be taken off, please take up this issue with appropriate authorities," ANI quoted Alphons as saying.
