Sena MP Gaikwad travels by car to Delhi
Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, who has been barred by all major domestic airlines for assaulting an Air India duty manager, has chosen to travel by road to Delhi for the ongoing Parliament session.
"Gaikwad is reaching Delhi by car on Wednesday but will not attend the day's proceedings of the Lok Sabha," sources close to the beleaguered Osmanabad MP said. However, he will attend tomorrow's session if his party leadership allows him to do so, the sources said.
The development came after Gaikwad apparently booked a seat from Hyderabad to Delhi on Flight AI 551 for Wednesday, which was cancelled by the national carrier.
He had also booked a seat on Tuesday on the 8 am flight, AI 806, from Mumbai to Delhi for Wednesday but his ticket was promptly cancelled by the airline. The MP is accused of beating up an elderly AI staffer with a sandal last Thursday.
