Congress MP Lauds Scindia For Starting New Jabalpur Flights Amid Party's 'treachery' Jibe

In an interesting development on Monday, Congress Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha thanked new Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia for starting 8 new flights. SpiceJet will operate flights on the Gwalior-Mumbai-Gwalior, Gwalior-Pune-Gwalior, Jabalpur-Surat-Jabalpur, Ahmedabad-Gwalior-Ahmedabad routes under the aegis of the UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik) scheme. Launched in June 2016, this scheme is aimed at enhancing connectivity to remote and regional areas of India and making air travel affordable.

Congress MP Vivek Tankha tweeted, "Jabalpur got this gift just a few days after Jyotiraditya Scindia assumed charge as the Civil Aviation Minister. Thank you! Madhavrao ji too always gave priority to Jabalpur after Gwalior. We expect the same from you." 

This assumes significance as the Madhya Pradesh Congress unit had staged a black balloon protest against his induction into the Union Cabinet. Claiming that Scindia has been rewarded by the BJP for his treachery, Congress took a dig at Scindia's portfolio - the Aviation ministry. Warning his colleagues of his 'scheming', Congress claimed that the 'sold-out Maharaj would now sell off Air India'.
