Shiv Sena likens Ravindra Gaikwad to Kapil Sharma, questions dual standards
Amid discussion on the ban imposed by airlines on Ravindra Gaikwad in Lok Sabha, Shiv Sena MP Anandrao Adsul on Monday asked why a similar action was not taken against comedian Kapil Sharma, who had misbehaved on a Melbourne-Delhi flight after getting drunk.

Gaikwad, who had assaulted an Air India staffer, was last week barred from flying on the Air India after which even Jet Airways, IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir imposed a similar ban. Gaikwad remained unapologetic after his brazen assault and even the Shiv Sena refused to take any action against him.
The Sena, in fact, questioned the travel ban imposed by Federation of Indian Airlines.

On the other hand, Sharma was flying business class of a Melbourne-Delhi flight on March 16. Reports stated that he had had too many drinks and then started to misbehave. He is also said to have used expletives against members of his crew.
He was asked to calm down by the cabin crew. After calming down, he is alleged to have stood up again and hurled expletives at his team members.
