Amaravati (Andhra Pradesh), (IANS) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday condemned the incident in Parliament in which Shiv Sena members surrounded Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapati Raju.
“It is unfortunate to see some MPs’ unruly behaviour towards the Aviation Minister,” said Naidu.
The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President tweeted that he strongly condemns such behaviour.
Ashok Gajapati Raju is a leader of TDP, an ally of the BJP-led NDA government.
Naidu said such behaviour of MPs in Parliament was not good for democracy.
The TDP leader said leaders of all parties should ensure that such an incident was not repeated in the future.
Shiv Sena MPs on Thursday surrounded Raju over the flying ban on party MP Ravindra Gaikwad and threatened that unless it was lifted, they “won’t allow the airlines to fly from Mumbai”.
The incident happened after the Lok Sabha was adjourned by Speaker Sumitra Mahajan over the Shiv Sena protest.
As soon as Shiv Sena MPs surrounded Raju, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs S.S. Ahluwalia and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh rushed to shield him.
