The media may have dubbed it as an appalling display of high handedness and bullying, but the UP Govt thinks otherwise. Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad who trashed Air India staffer with this slipper for not providing a business class seat has been extended an offer to join anti-romeo squad.
Speaking to Faking News, Director General of Police Mr. Javed Ahmed said, “As you are aware that the anti-romeo squad in functional in UP and the results are positive in the first couple of days itself. The only problem we are facing is the shortage of man power. We are constantly of the look out for talent and that is the reason why we have sent across an request to Mr. Gaikwad asking him to join the squad.”
“Came to know from the media that he hit Air-India employee 25 times. I mean that is some skill in trashing people. I have no doubt that his skills can be put to good use if he joins our squad,” Mr. Ahmed added.
Sources say that UP CM Yogi Adityanath too seemed impressed with the Mr. Gaikwad and keeping aside the political differences between BJP and Shiv Sena agreed to have him in the squad.
“On an average we cathch around 30 to 50 romeos in a day. Trashing them is not an easy task. With the support of the Gaikwad sahab the task of beating up romeos will be child’s play,” said a source close to the CM.
Though UP CM may be impressed, Mr. Gaikwad’s own party wasn’t really pleased with the controversy surrounding the trashing of AI staffer.
“How could he use slipper to hit the staff. I mean we just got majority in BMC elections. At least he should have used some branded footwear like Woodland. It reflects so poorly on our party. Log kya sochenge. Inke paas paise bhi nahi hai joote khareed ne ke liye. We will set up a team and investigate this matter. Such incidents will not be tolerated by the party,” said a senior functionary of Shiv Sena.
