An Air India Flight from Delhi to Hyderabad was delayed 45 minutes because a politician was late as she’d gone shopping. The politician is Congress party leader MP Renuka Chowdhary had been on the flight which included a union minister and a Supreme Court judge.
The flight was delayed on purpose so that the politician can be boarded. The excuse given was that her baggage was already on board and so Air India officials stated “no option but to wait for her.”
The congress woman denied she was late by 45 minutes because of shopping but co passengers said they saw her shopping near by.
The excuse given by the politician was that she was waiting for a car to take her to the departure gate which took a long time in arriving.
She said she had requested for a cart to take her to the departure gate, which took time in arriving.
