Shiva Sena Mp's Boorish Behaviour On Air India

The MP tried to show he was a "dada" but once a FIR was filed and he was barred from traveling by air, he lost all steam.

India has a long way to go to match the ethics and culture of the British parliament. In India, most members of parliament think they are above the law. They resort to boorish behavior that shows they are not fit to represent anybody in parliament. 

The recent case of a member of parliament is an eye opener. The MP when denied a business class seat on a flight with no business class took offense and started beating the Air India duty manager with his slipper. Later he brazenly claimed that he had hit the duty manager 25 times.  He challenged anybody to take

action against him. The Air India manager had his spectacles broken.  In case any other person would have done this he would have been arrested and sent to Jail.  He would have been charged with assault.

The public outcry had an effect and the MP Mr. Gaikwad was banned from flying on any airline. His ticket was canceled and he had to go back by train. The police, at last, woke up to the crime and registered a FIR. The MP who had caught the Rajdhani Express from New Delhi got down at Mathura station complaining that he had chest pain. Actually, he had developed cold feet on hearing that a FIR has been filed against him. He also

must have felt insulted that he had been debarred from flying back to Pune. In fact, he was stopped at the airport gate and not allowed to enter. This was a long overdue step for a goonda act can be countered no other way.

In any case, such members of parliament deserve no sympathy as they represent a goonda culture. That it is supported by theShiv Sena a  party that is unable to come to power in Maharashtra and has to play second fiddle to the BJP, is cause for concern. Perhaps this is one way to attract attention. Prime Minister Modi is culpable. The PM who tweets regularly on small matters has not said a word on this incident. Why is he silent.?

Can the PM explain why the BJP has not condemned this act?It's about time, the people realized that the BJP and the Shiv Sena are hands in glove together. The PM must set the record straight and not only condemn the act but also suspend the MP from the house.He does not deserve to be a member or a people's representative.

    I think he has had a big insult to his name. Getting banned from almost all major players of aviation industry is huge disrespect. Practically, he can't fly now apart from some airlines such as Vistara & Air Asia. This is not the end. He should be even suspended and banned from contesting elections ever in his life. :)

    The act of MP is very shameful and surely he does not deserve to be a people's representative.Strongly action is needed to be taken inorder to teach a nice lesson to such MPs who think they are above law.
