Mumbai: A day after Air India lifted its ban, Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad reached Mumbai by train and called on party President Uddhav Thackeray.
As the two met, all private airlines too lifted their unprecedented fortnight long flying ban on Gaikwad after the March 23 fracas on a Pune-Delhi Air India flight.
The issue snowballed into a major controversy between the two NDA allies -- the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiv Sena -- and rocked Parliament.
He reiterated he was not at fault and alleged that the Air India official he allegedly assaulted was "mad" and had at least half a dozen complaints of rowdy behaviour against him in the company.
Gaikwad also claimed that seven times tickets were booked in his name but he was unaware who did it.
Gaikwad is likely to resume flying from next week.
