Cong fumes as Indigo report indicts Youth Congress men, omits EP name – Reuters

By Express press service

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In what could tighten the noose around two Youth Congress workers who protested against Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on a plane, Indigo Airlines’ preliminary report makes clear it was the duo who had instructed the CM. The report, however, does not name the DFL official, EP Jayarajan, who allegedly pushed them to the ground.

Calling the omission a deliberate move, opposition leader VD Satheesan contacted the head of Indigo Airlines South India to complain about the report’s factual inaccuracy. Indigo Thiruvananthapuram Airport Manager Vijith TV filed a report with Valiyathura Police on June 14 stating that an altercation took place inside Indigo Flight 6E-7407 after it landed at Thiruvananthapuram airport. He indicates that the CM and two others were seated on 20A, 20B and 20C. The three passengers (Youth Congress workers) were seated in seats 8A, 8C and 7D.

“After landing, as soon as the seat belt signal went off, the said passengers immediately got up from their respective seats and rushed towards the Chief Minister shouting slogans in their vernacular. Seeing this , one of the passengers traveling with the CM intervened,” the report said. The CM then disembarked from the flight, it added.

The report drew criticism from congressional leaders because it did not mention Jayarajan’s role in the incident, but said YC members blamed the CM. Satheesan approached Varun Dwivedi, Associate Vice President, InterGlobe Aviation Ltd (Indigo Airlines) on Thursday with a complaint.

“Indigo’s manager made a false and frivolous report”

Satheesan complained that the director of Indigo had submitted a “false and patently frivolous” report to the Valiyathura police station. In his letter, Satheesan said the details of the report stood in stark contrast to statements made by other passengers on the plane, including Jayarajan. “It should be recalled that Jayarajan gave an interview to a leading news channel that the Youth Congress workers had shouted slogans against the Chief Minister, demanding his resignation, after he was taken down from office. ‘plane. This was also endorsed by CPM Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. But when the Indigo airport manager made the report, Jayarajan who brutally manhandled the protesters finds no mention in the report,” Satheesan said in his letter.

He also alleged that the Indigo airport manager learned to come from Kannur and therefore avoided Jayarajan’s name in the report due to political pressure from senior officials, police, CPM leaders and of the CMO. Satheesan urged Varun Dwivedi to conduct a fair investigation and submit a truthful report to investigative agencies and GDCA.

Meanwhile, Jayarajan taunted Satheesan saying that the latter approached the Indigo superiors as he had no other work to do. “Let the unemployed go and file a complaint against me. I don’t have time to run after such people,” he said.

Will take action soon: Scindia

Thiruvananthapuram: Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said his ministry would look into the incident on board the flight and take action soon.
He was responding to Congressman Hibi Eden’s tweet in which he asked why Indigo Airlines, DGCA and Jyotiraditya Scindia were not filing an FIR against EP Jayarajan when a video clip clearly showed an LDF organizer pushing two passengers to the ground.
