Praveensinh Pardesi, the Principal Secretary in Maharashtra government refused to comment when asked about the delay he is believed to have caused in the Mumbai airport. It was earlier reported that Pardesi caused the delay of a flight to the USA as he was carrying an incorrect passport. Pardeshi is said to have carried a new passport which did not have the requisite VISA to travel to the USA and was stopped the security gate before boarding. While the airline staff wanted to offload the PS, he is said to have argued saying he had a valid visa and should be allowed to fly, but the visa was on his old passport. CM Fadnavis is said to have stepped in and told Air India staff that they would have to offload him as well, if Pardeshi was offloaded. Air India staff were forced to allow the Govt staff fetch the officer’s old passport nirtika yes

with the valid visa from his residence in Marine Drive. The entire episode caused a delay of 1 hour 28 minutes to the flight.
