Sena files privilege motion on barring MP from flying

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Tuesday said she was considering a privilege motion by the Shiv Sena on the ban by all airlines on party member Ravindra Gaikwad.

The issue was raised by Sena member Anandrao Adsul when Zero Hour started.

Adsul, who had raised the issue on Monday as well, was seen speaking even though his microphone was not working.

Mahajan said a privilege motion notice had been received. “I have received your notice of motion of privilege, it is under my consideration.”

A Lok Sabha member from Osmanabad in Maharashtra, Gaikwad last week abused and assaulted a 60-year-old duty manager of Air India with a slipper.

Air India then refused to fly Gaikwad, after which other private airlines too blacklisted him. An FIR was also registered against him.
