BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur, responding to a video showing the passengers on a SpiceJet flight confronting her, has explained saying “I was travelling on a SpiceJet flight. I have a problem in my spinal cord and was allotted seat 1A which has leg space. I even paid extra for it. I was brought there on a wheelchair.

“The air hostess told me to not sit there, two more people told me that saying it's an emergency seat. But nowhere was it mentioned that it is an emergency seat. I told them if it is a rule, then I should be provided with the rule book. They didn't have a rule book.

“Some passengers came and asked why is the flight being delayed. People thought I am showing off my VIP status but I was travelling like a normal passenger. I travelled in pain at the back and later complained to Bhopal Airport Director.”

BJP MP Pragya Thakur on board a Delhi-Bhopal flight created a scene and caused a delay in the flight over not being allowed to sit on a pre-allotted seat because the rules prohibit wheel-chair bound passengers to sit in the emergency row.


Two days after a spat between BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur and air staffers of Spicejet Delhi-Bhopal flight over the seating arrangement, a video became viral on social media where the passengers are arguing with the MP over the delay in the flight.

The video shows passengers reminding Pragya Thakur that she was people’s representative and it was her duty to not trouble common public. The politician finally shifted to another seat but the video of the passengers arguing with her became viral
