TDP MP banned by Air India, Indigo, Spicejet for creating ruckus at Visakhapatnam airport

New Delhi: Telugu Desam Party MP Diwakar Reddy has been banned by various airlines including Spicejet, Indigo, and Air India, after he created a ruckus at the Visakhapatnam airport over being denied boarding pass on Thursday.

Reddy arrived to board an Indigo flight to Hyderabad but was late by 15 minutes. After denied boarding pass, he damaged airline property in a fit of rage.

The lawmaker insisted that he be given boarding pass and kept arguing with the authorities before reportedly damaging a printing machine.

The entire incident at the airport was caught on CCTV cameras.

However, this is not the first time Reddy made into headlines for wrong reasons. Last year, in a similar incident, he created ruckus and yelled at staff after arriving late.

The Centre had last month released draft rules for a "national no-fly list" of unruly passengers for all domestic carriers, proposing a ban on flying from three months upto an indefinite period.
