Controversial Shiv Sena Member of Parliament Ravindra Gaikwad will fly again after 15 days of being grounded.
The Ministry of Civil Aviation in a statement has said Air India has been asked to lift the ban on the controversial MP.
Gaikwad has been embroiled in controversy ever since he hit an 60-year-old Air India staffer 25 times with his slipper over a seat disagreement.
Yesterday, the Minister of State of Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha held a two-hour meeting with Air India CMD Ashwani Lohani over the Gaikwad issue.
Following that, Gaikwad wrote a letter addressed the Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju in which he expressed 'regret' for the incident, but, notably, did not apologise outright.
