New Delhi, April 8: It looks like Ravindra Gaikwad is further emboldened after the Air India on Friday lifted ban on the Shiv Sena Member of Parliament after a request from Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju.

Now, Gaikwad, accused of beating an AI official recently for doing his duty, has called his victim a mad man.

"That man (AI official) is mad. There are eight similar cases of fight with passengers against him. (Vo aadmi(AI official) pagal hai, uske khilaaf aise 8 cases hain jhagda karne ke)," Gaikwad was quoted as saying by ANI.

The Shiv Sena MP told reporters on Saturday that it was the fault of AI official, so Gaikwad won't apologise. "It was his (AI official) fault. And, I will apologise? Yes, I have apologised to Parliament. (Ghalti uski( AI official) thi aur use main maafi maangu? Haan sadan se maang li maafi)," added Gaikwad.

Gaikwad claimed that all the reports of him trying to book flight tickets under various names with various airline carriers were false. "Seven times tickets were booked in my name. I did not do it. Who did? I have raised this issue in Parliament," he said.

Recently, all the private airline carriers banned Gaikwad from flying in their aircrafts, after reports of the Shiv Sena MP assaulting an AI official outraged the nation.
