Congress MP Shashi Tharoor had to board a train in Gaya after his flight to Delhi was cancelled, thanking a “kind passenger” for his gesture.
“Gr8 story @htTweets but infact I never heard from @sureshpprabhu. A kind passenger gave up his seat for me. No quota,” Tharoor tweeted after hindustantimes.com published a story that the he got to travel on the train after he appealed to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Twitter.
On Friday, Tharoor’s Air India flight to Delhi made an emergency landing at the Gaya airport because of an oil leakage in its landing wheel.
