BJP effect: Vadra's name may soon be deleted from airport VIP list
New Delhi, May 22: Before the elections, the BJP leaders had issued many 'warnings' that the party wouldn't 'spare' the controversial businessman Robert Vadra, when they come to power.

Now it's known that soon the Gandhi son-in-law's name will be deleted from the list of passengers who are not to be frisked at airports. According to a DNA report, the officials of the civil aviation ministry and the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) said on Wednesday that the order for the deletion will soon be issued by the new government.

Vadra, the husband of Priyanka Gandhi, is the only civilian in the list of those exempted from frisking at airports. This was as per the decision taken by the previous UPA government.

This special privilege  given to Vadra was questioned by other political parties, several advocacy groups and even the air passengers association several times in past years.

The DNA report quotes 'highly-placed sources' within the civil aviation ministry saying that the UPA government didn't let any RTI application find out the details of the official order made for the inclusion of Vadra's name in the list.

"The special exemption made to Vadra was wrong. But we hope things change now," said a senior ministry official to DNA.
