Air India had to delay the departure of its Newark flight from Mumbai by nearly an hour after it was reported that the principal secretary to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had not carried his passport with a valid visa.
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan had demanded an inquiry into the delay of the flight to US. Chavan added that Air India officials have flouted rules due to pressure. He said that Fadnavis should demand an apology for causing inconvenience to passengers. Fadnavis is upset with the media reports of him delaying the Air India flight. He took to twitter to clarify his stand over the issue. Few passengers came in support of Fadnavis and said that he was not responsible for the flight delay. The PMO has intervened in this matter and asked for a report.
