New Delhi: A private jet carrying Union Ministers M Venkaiah Naidu and Rajiv Pratap Rudy on Monday aborted take off from Delhi airport at the last minute due to a "fuel warning".

The Hawker chartered aircraft was taxing and was about to take off when the fuel warning signal was triggered, forcing the pilot to abort the flight.

Naidu was on his way to Jaipur to file his nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha polls.

"Both Naidu and Rudy are safe. They were delayed by about two hours," BJP sources said.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje was waiting for Naidu at Jaipur airport to accompany the Union minister for filing the papers.
