Congress leader Pawan Khera was reportedly denied permission to fly from Delhi to Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh, this morning.
The Congress alleged an attempt to detain Pawan Khera at the Delhi airport and protested on the tarmac.
According to IndiGo Airlines, it has been ordered not to fly Pawan Khera to Raipur. Khera’s arrest has been urged by the BJP due to claims that he insulted Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
At a recent press conference, Khera flubbed PM Modi’s name. “If Narasimha Rao could form a JPC (Joint Parliamentary Committee), if Atal Bihari Vajpayee could form a JPC, then what problem does Narendra Gautam Das – sorry, Damodardas – Modi have?” he had said.
