BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur on Saturday filed a complaint against private airline SpiceJet for allegedly denying her the seat she had booked during a Delhi-Bhopal flight.
Pragya Thakur lodged the complaint with the director of the the Raja Bhoj Airport at Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal after arriving by flight SG 2489.
Sources said that after landing in Bhopal, an upset Pragya Thakur did not get down from the aircraft for some time.
When reporters approached her outside the airport later, she alleged that the airline staff "does not behave properly with passengers".
"They did not give me the booked seat. I asked them to show the rules. I called the director and lodged a complaint with him," she said.
While neither Pragya Thakur nor spokesperson of the airline could be contacted for comment, Airport Director Anil Vikram confirmed that he had received a complaint from the Bhopal MP.
"I have got her complaint about seat allotment. We will look into it on Monday," he told news agency PTI.
