TDP MP creates ruckus at Vizag Airport, Airlines takes him on board

Indigo airlines banned the Telugu Desam Party MP Diwakar Reddy for misbehaving with airport staff after he was denied entry for coming in late.

Diwakar Reddy is not the first person misbehaving with airlines, in past, Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad hit a 60-year-old Air India Duty Manager with a slipper for not being given a business class seat.A complaint was filed against YSR Congress MP Mithun Reddy by assaulting the Air India manager at the Renigunta airport.

Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu intervened to fix the damage caused by the rude behavior of Anantapur MP JC Diwakar Reddy towards the staff of Indigo airlines.

The Anantapur MP had arrived too late to board an IndiGo flight to Hyderabad and when the airline officials denied to hand him his boarding pass he damaged their property and abused the staff. The CCTV camera showed what the situation was.

According to IndiGo airlines staff, the final boarding time for a domestic flight is 45 minutes before takeoff and the MP reportedly arrived 28 minutes after the closing time.

Hours after tweeting that he would get the incident probed, Raju said there was no need for probe. Airlines Indigo, Go Air, Vistara and Air Asia have imposed a flying ban on the MP.

Korea trip off to uncharacteristic low-key start
US diplomats, members of Congress and North Korea experts also were hesitant to declare a new chapter in bilateral relations. PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) - Dennis Rodman's visit to North Korea has been uncharacteristically low-key so far.

Interestingly, the MP managed to board the flight but it was not clear who intervened to get him the boarding pass.

Following the Gaikwad incident, the Centre had released its draft rules for a national no-fly list for unruly passengers and proposed a ban on flying from three months up to an indefinite period.

IndiGo, state-run Air India, SpiceJet and Jet Airways announced flying ban on Reddy last night itself while full- service carrier Vistara and two more budget airlines - GoAir and AirAsia India - today barred him from their flights. The government is expected to finalise these rules shortly.

Previous year a lawmaker was arrested on charges of assaulting an airline official after he and his family were prevented from boarding a flight because the gate had closed.

With all the media exposing, along with evidences, the highhanded behaviour of Diwakar Reddy, Naidu conveyed to him that it would be better he tendered apology to the Indigo Airlines staff.

"The safety and security of our colleagues and customers is our highest priority", it said.
