Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, came in for sharp criticism for hitting a staffer of the Air India with his slipper, on Thursday. When the aircraft landed in Delhi, he refused to disembark despite attempts at persuading him to do so. Sukumar also tried to pacify the MP, who vociferously complained about the morning flight to Delhi from Pune not having business class.
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.
“I first asked him to lower his voice as his blood pressure would shoot up.
He then said he would complain to Modi. Then I slapped him. I hit him 25 times with my sandal.
“I am Shiv Sena MP, not of BJP, to tolerate abuses,” he said. Gaikwad, bragging about the incident, said,“I was about to throw him off the plane.” He boastfully claimed he held up the plane for “full one hour” and did not allow the maintenance staff to clean the aircraft.
In this shocking footage, it is seen that individuals had to restrain the Shiv Sena MP who almost throws the officer off the plane!
