Shri Narendra Modi,
Dear Mr. Prime Minister,
India is disgusted by the actions of Member of Parliament
Shri Ravindra Gaikwad.
He has arrogantly boasted on national television with great pride that he had hit an Air India staff member 25 times with his chappal and feels completely justified. This has also been recorded on video. This is one of the worst cases of VIP racism and hubris.
Citizens are very happy that Air India has decided not to take him as a passenger and other airlines have also followed suit. We applaud the government for supporting Air India’s principled stand. This should apply to any unruly passenger on flights to ensure safety.
We demand that your government must ensure the following:
1. Allow the police to proceed as per the law without any interference in this matter.
2. Ensure that Air India does not offer him a seat on its flights atleast for a period of one year.
We have noticed that some political parties are defending Shri Ravindra Gaikwad’s unforgivable actions. We have faith that your government will not succumb to such pressures.
