- Central government has withdrawn tarmac access for Lalu, wife: Officials
- Permission was granted to Lalu, wife in 2009
- Lalu's RJD is jointly heading government in Bihar with JD(U) and Congress
"Previous order (allowing access) was for Patna airport only, which has been withdrawn," an official at the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) said on the condition of anonymity.
The move comes after the Ministry of Civil Aviation wrote a letter to the BCAS informing that it had decided to revoke permission granted in 2009 allowing Lalu Yadav and his wife's vehicle to drive up to the tarmac.
"It has now been decided that the permission accorded to Shri Lalu Prasad Yadav and Smt Rabri Devi vide the AVSEC order No 13/2009 dated 1/08/2009 maybe withdrawn forthwith," says the letter dated July 21.
The letter asks BCAS to take "immediate action to issue necessary instructions" to ensure implementation of the ministry's decision.
