Shocking: Congress Leader Heckles Union Minister Smriti Irani On IndiGo Flight

Almost a year after Kunal Kamra did an infamous incident on Arnab Goswami on an Indigo flight, another shocking incident occurred on an Indigo flight today. This time the victim of the incident is the Union Minister of Women and Child Development Smriti Irani and the culprit is All India Mahila Congress acting president Netta D’Souza.

This incident happened when both the leaders of the opposition party came face to face on IndiGo’s Delhi-Guwahati flight with the minister objecting to being “accosted”. IndiGo said the incident is currently under investigation. 

The minister – who was sitting in the first row of the plane – is heard asking D’Souza to not block the way so that people behind her can de-board. Irani, while walking on the aerobridge towards the terminal, is heard telling the Congress leader than 80 crore people in India are getting free food grains for the last 27 months. “It will be lovely if I am not accosted,” she says, to which D’Souza says “no one is being accosted”.

The Congress leader then tells Irani that she is a minister to which the latter replies, ”I am answering ma’am”, and goes on to speak about free COVID-19 vaccination. Some parts of the conversation in the video are not audible.

IndiGo spokesperson told PTI, “We are aware of the matter on flight 6E262 DEL-GAU on 10 April 2022 and it is currently under investigation. We would like to confirm no IndiGo employees were involved in this matter.”
