New Delhi, April 6: After uproar in Parliament over the flying ban on Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, Air India has reportedly been asked to increase security at all airports across Maharashtra. An ANI report quotes Air India sources as saying that airline has been asked to beef up security. This comes after Shiv Sena MPs reportedly heckled Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju in Lok Sabha and threatened as quoted by ANI that they won’t let flights run from Mumbai. Reports say that the Shiv Sena may also address the media at 4 pm on Thursday over the issue.
