Lufthansa breaks silence amidst CM Mann’s inebriation allegations

by The Canadian Parvasi

A News made rounds on Monday about an alleged 4-hour delay in CM Mann’s flight after he was flying back to India following his Germany Tour. This kerfuffle led to Mann being unable to show up to AAP’s National Convention in New Delhi in person. He did, however, attend the meet chaired by AAP’s National Convener, Arvind Kejriwal, through video conferencing.

Reports started circulating that the CM was allegedly under the influence of Alcohol whilst boarding the flight leading to the cabin crew denying him access to his seat. This rumour caught fire when it was reported that a supposed co-passenger on the flight gave his side of the story.

The anonymous co-passenger alleged that Mann was too inebriated to walk and had to employ the assistance of his wife and his security personnel to do so. However, AAP leaders Kuldeep Dhaliwal and Meet Hayer in a joint press conference vehemently denied all such claims stating that the news was propagated by the opposition in an effort to defame AAP.

The opposition took no time to make sly remarks about the AAP CM. SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal took to Twitter to express his utter dismay with the situation. He tweeted on the matter, “Disturbing media reports quoting co-passengers say Pb CM


was deplaned from Lufthansa’s flight as he was too drunk to walk. And it led to a 4-hour flight delay. He missed AAP’s national convention. These reports have embarrassed & shamed Punjabis all over the globe.”

Attested with it was a picture of a news article that echoed the rumours.

However, Lufthansa Airlines themselves clarified in a tweet that the 4-hour flight delay was because of a change in the aircraft and a delay in a related flight. Lufthansa clarified the matter by replying to a Twitter user who enquired about it.

However, when asked specifically about CM Bhagwant Mann, Lufthansa refused to give out information, citing privacy concerns of the passengers as the reason.
