Union Minister Ramkripal Yadav was on Tuesday prevented by a woman CISF official from entering Jayaprakash Narayan International Airport here through its exit gate.
The lady official stopped the minister outside and talked to her superior over walkie-talkie, an airport official said.
Yadav, Union Minister of State for Rural Development and Drinking Water, later said, “I was in a hurry and made a mistake, trying to enter from the exit gate. But when the lady official asked me to take another gate, I obeyed and entered through the entry gate.”
“I did not argue with the officer or said anything to her,” he said and lauded the official’s commitment to duty.
Yadav had come to the airport to receive Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya.
