TDP MP JC Diwakar Reddy denied ticket by TruJet

Barred by domestic airlines for his rude behaviour at Visakhapatnam airport last month, TDP MP J.C. Diwakar Reddy faced more embarrassment as TruJet refused to fly him on Sunday.

The regional airline later apologied to Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader saying the staff could have assumed that he was still under the flying ban.

An aide of Lok Sabha member from Anantapur wanted to book the ticket for Hyderabad-Vijayawada but the staff at the ticketing counter at Hyderabad Airport refused to issue the ticket.

TruJet, which was not among the airlines which barred the MP from flying after he created ruckus at Vizag Airport, has apologised to Reddy.

Earlier, on Saturday night the minister was reportedly not allowed to board SpiceJet flight from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. He had reached Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad but was informed by the airline staff that he can’t board the flight.

The MP, who returned after two-week long vacation abroad, again failed in his attempt to fly on Sunday morning. He then left for Vijayawada by road.
