Watch: Rahul Gandhi forced to return Delhi after Engine trouble reported on flight to Patna

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, who was on his way to Patna via airway, was forced to return to Delhi mid air after some technical glitches were reported in the plane engine.

The problem occurred while Rahul Gandhi was enroute to Bihar capital for meetings in Samastipur (Bihar), Balasore (Orissa) and Sangamner (Maharashta).

Taking to the micro-blogging site, Rahul posted a video, stating “Engine trouble on our flight to Patna today! We’ve been forced to return to Delhi. Today’s meetings in Samastipur (Bihar), Balasore (Orissa) & Sangamner (Maharashta) will run late. Apologies for the inconvenience.”

Rahul Gandhi was scheduled to address a rally at a college in Bihar’s Samastipur at 10:30 am.

This is not the first time a plane carrying Rahul Gandhi has faced a problem.

In April last year, ahead of the Karnataka assembly election, Rahul Gandhi and four passengers on a chartered flight from Delhi to Karnataka got a major scare after the aircraft reportedly developed “multiple faults”, triggering a complaint to seek a probe to determine if there was any “intentional tampering” of the aircraft.
