Row over Air India's refusal to provide non-veg

New Delhi: Delhi University professor is upset with the national carrier Air India after he was denied a non vegetarian meal onboard a Guwahati to Delhi flight.
Sharing the incident on micro-blogging site, Twitter, the professor, Rajesh Jha, said that when he asked for a non-vegetarian meal he was told that it was served only in the business class.
Jha also tagged Union minister for industry and civil aviation Suresh Prabhu in his tweet.
Air India spokesperson Praveen Bhatnagar told Mail Today that the airline had stopped serving non vegetarian food on domestic flights one and a half year ago as it's expensive.
Tagging Prabhu, Jha tweeted, "Why is the airline imposing a particular type of food on economy passengers and not on business class passengers? Secondly, why impose vegetarianism on a born non vegetarian? Non-vegetarianism is part of our culture. Making a choice is very basic to a democracy and such a restrictive decision is undemocratic. It violates our basic rights."
