& on asking there was a strange reply from him “Yes I hit him, he misbehaved with me. I had paid for a business class ticket. This is not the first time it has happened.”
“I have complained several times but no action has been taken. So this time I lost my cool,” he said.
He told the media that he had hit the staff 25 times with his slippers.
It is a shameful incident as per Air India official the MP had booked a Business class flight but airline changed the flight to an all economy aircraft. On adding he said they had even informed the Personal Secretary of Mr. Gaikwad about the change & had even asked them to cancel the flight if they wish. But still R Gaikwad reached the airport & boarded the plane.
Air india is looking further into the issue but no police complaint has been filed against the Mp as of now.
