There have been earlier instances of Shiv Sena leaders been drunk on power. Ravindra Gaikward, a Member of Parliament of the Shiv Sena on March 23, 2017, while travelling to Delhi from Pune, he was accused of hitting an Air India staff with his shoe 25 times and attempting to throw him out of the plane. This act led all of the Indian Airline companies to impose an No-Fly ban on him.
Delhi police filed two criminal charges on him: one for hitting the government staff on duty and the other for taking the plane ransom without departing from the plane.
After a lot of tussle, Air India lifted the ban on Shiv Sena lawmaker Ravindra Gaikwad but a section of national carrier’s pilots refused to fly him unless he apologised for allegedly assaulting a senior cabin crew on board. Later, Gaikwad expressed regret for the incident but did not apologise in a letter to civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapati Raju.
