Raju Attacked In Lok Sabha By Shiv Sena
The Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapati Raju had to face tense moment in Lok Sabha as Shiva Sena MPs surrounded him in the house. The MPs are angry over minister’s firm refusal to intervene on the flying ban on their colleague Ravindra Gaikwad, who had assaulted an airline manager two weeks ago in a fight over a business class seat.
In an unprecedented scene, Ministers were seen shielding Raju in the Lok Sabha as Anand Geete and other Sena MPs surrounded him.
The dramatic developments were taken place when the house adjourned for a brief time. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and other ministers rushed to Raju’s side and to help save the situation.
The Shiva Sena MP Geete was seen shouting that no flight will take off from Mumbai. The minister, however, said the law would take its course. Aircraft are machines where people fly and safety is important. Safety will not be compromised.
