Bhagwant Mann Lufthansa controversy: Jyotiraditya Scindia to probe case, seeks report from German carrier | India News


NEW DELHI: Union Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Tuesday said he would probe the alleged impeachment of Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann via Lufthansa because the latter was drunk. Scindia sought a detailed report from the German service provider.
Opposition parties allege that Mann was not allowed to fly Lufthansa’s Frankfurt-Delhi flight this Sunday because he was ‘too drunk to walk’ and because his luggage had to be unloaded, the flight was cancelled. 4 hours delay. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) denied the allegation and claimed Punjab CM had health problems as a result of which he was unable to take the flight he had booked.

“This is an incident on international soil…will have to verify the details and facts. Lufthansa must provide that data. Based on a request that was sent to me… I will definitely look into the matter,” Scindia told reporters.
For its part, Lufthansa cites the EU’s strict General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to make any passenger-specific comments. “Our flight from Frankfurt to Delhi (this Sunday) departed later than originally planned due to delays in arrival and aircraft changes. For data protection reasons, we do not provide any information regarding individual passengers,” a Lufthansa spokesperson said Monday.
Mann visited Germany from 11-18 September to attract investments and strategic alliances in various fields.

Akali leader Dal Sukhbir Singh Badal tweeted: “Jammering media reports quote fellow passengers saying that the Punjab Minister Bhagwant Mann was expelled from a Lufthansa flight because he was too drunk to walk. And it resulted in the flight being delayed by 4 hours. He missed the AAP’s national convention. These reports have shamed and shamed Punjabis globally.”
