Pilot demoted to auto driver for making Mamata Banerjee walk up the stairs to the airplane

Kolkata: Mamata Banerjee is not a fan of walking these days, after a DIG in Bengaluru, an Air India pilot discovered it earlier today. The Air India pilot has been suspended from duty and asked to drive an auto rickshaw for the next 6 months after he asked Mamata Di to walk all the way up the stairs to get inside the plane. Earlier, the DIG who asked the Bengal CM to walk for a few meters during HD Kumaraswamy’s oath ceremony was immediately transferred.

An angry TMC spokesperson said, “This was all done to try and humiliate our dear CM. Instead of arranging an elevator or tilting the plane to bring the entrance close to the ground, they asked our dear leader to walk all the way up the stairs. The torture didn’t stop there, after reaching the gate, they asked her to walk a full 2 metres to her seat. This was simply unacceptable and we did raise a complaint.”

“We are sure this was done by Modi Government to take revenge for the drubbing in recent Panchayat Polls in Bengal. But we were never going to take this lying down and that is why we raised this issue at the highest levels. Now that pilot can drive the auto for the next 6 months and think about the atrocities he unleashed against our dear leader”, he added.

Meanwhile, as per sources, the pilot has already learnt his lesson and is letting people enter his auto without making them climb any stairs.
