New Delhi (India), Apr 26 (ANI): Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who was on his way to Bihar on Friday to address a rally, had to return to Delhi after the aircraft carrying him developed a snag.
He tweeted, “Engine trouble on our flight to Patna today! We have been forced to return to Delhi. Today’s meetings in Samastipur (Bihar), Balasore (Orissa) & Sangamner (Maharashta) will run late. Apologies for the inconvenience.”



Gandhi was scheduled to land at Patna airport and then proceed to Samastipur.
This is not the first time the Congress chief has faced aircraft trouble. A Falcon 2000 luxury business jet carrying him from Delhi to Hubli in Karnataka on April 26 last year had developed a computer snag while at 41,000 feet, causing a mid-air scare. (ANI)
