Should VIP's make their own rules?

Jul 03, 2015 12:38 AM IST India India

Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju has admitted that he was not aware but the fact is that 3 passengers were offloaded of an Air India flight in order to accomodate Rijiju and his officials.Embroiled in controversies over delay in Air India flights due to VIPs, the Prime Minister's office has sought a report from the Ministry of Civil Aviation. The PMO has sought information from the ministry on how many flights have been rescheduled to make way for VIP travel.The PMO's action comes as Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju are in the line of fire for delaying the flights and taking undue benefits for travel. While Fadnavis is in news for allegedly delaying an Air India flight to US, Rijiju is facing the heat for allegedly getting passengers de-boarded to get accommodate in a flight. The airline in question in both the cases is Air India.
