Tathagata Protests VVIP Culture At IGI

Bhubaneswar: Jan 10; Dhenkanal BJD MP Tathagata Satpathy late on Friday night sat on a dharna in front of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport gate in New Delhi protesting against the alleged preferential treatment to VVIPs. Satpathy reportedly blocked the entry of passengers alleging that airport officials extended extra privilege to a BJP Minister from Bhopal and two judges, causing problems for others.

Senior television journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, who was on his way to Bhubaneswar to attend some events here scheduled for Saturday, was to board the Air India flight on Friday evening along with Tathagata Satpathy and others.

The MP and other co-passengers were hell-bent and sought the AI to reverse its decision. Finally, the AI management gave in to the protest and the flight to Bhubaneswar scheduled to depart at 6.30 pm left at 2.30 am. "Proud of fellow Indians who are asking for judges and Minister to leave the flight for misusing VIP privilege! Desh badlega!" Rajdeep's another post read.
