Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh): Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia’s personal assistant’s participation in a meeting with Airport Authority of India (AAI) officials has kicked up a row.
The Congress has put a question mark on it.
Both the commissioner and the collector Gwalior also took part the meeting on Sunday evening.
Congress spokesperson Narendra Saluja accused personal assistant and OSD to union aviation minister Scindia’s Purushottam Parashar of giving instructions to the officials of the AAI and those of the district administration.
The AAI officials had reached Gwalior for a meeting with the district administration to identify land for construction of an airport there.
