A small aircraft carrying top BJP leaders Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj made emergency landing at Delhi airport this morning after it developed problems in its auto-pilot system on Monday. The leadership ignored the basic rule of the corporate world - the top leadership never flies together, at least in one transport vehicle. This precaution is necessary to ensure that all top leaders are not at risk at one given time, and location.
However, all the passengers on-board the a nine-seater aircraft are safe. BJP general secretary Dharmendra Pradhan and joint general secretary (Organisation) V Satish were also on-board the aircraft when the incident took place.
The aircraft was on a long journey. The BJP leaders were flying to Bangalore to address an election rally. Nine minutes into the flight, the pilot detected the problem in aircraft's auto-pilot system and immediately sought ATC's permission to land under emergency conditions.
