Some of the customers, however, were happy with the Shiv Sena MP's intervention which led to the functioning of the ATM machines.


Gaikwad sent his aide to withdraw money from an ATM at Latur. When policemen arrived and requested Gaikwad to discontinue his protest, this is what happened next:MP Ravindra Gaikwad justified this incidence by blaming it on the government. What should we do? He said the Centre and union finance minister is responsible for the situation, and he has right to protest. Complaining about not being able to travel business class, Gaikwad repeatedly hit Sukumar with slippers when the latter went to persuade him to disembark after he refused to alight.

On March 23, Gaikwad assaulted an Air India staffer inside an aircraft at the Delhi airport and was later caught bragging about it on video. Following the incident, the national carrier along with four leading private carriers blacklisted Mr Gaikwad from flying, till he apologised for the assault.

Earlier this month, the ban was revoked after the MP wrote a letter to civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju expressing regret over the incident.
