Following allegations made by the Congress party that Rahul Gandhi’s jet had been refused permission to land at Varanasi’s Lal Bahadur Shastri Airport on Monday, the Varanasi airport authorities have dismissed the claims.
Ajay Rai, the head of the Congress, claimed that President Droupadi Murmu’s visit was used as an “excuse” by airport officials who refused to grant clearance due to pressure. He asserted that despite being “deliberately” denied permission to do so, Rahul Gandhi’s jet was due to arrive at Varanasi Airport on Monday night.
The charter plane company that was transporting Rahul Gandhi canceled the flight on their own, the Varanasi airport claimed in response to the accusations.
