A plane carrying Rahul Gandhi developed a technical snag while the Congress president was flying to poll-bound Karnataka on April 26. A complaint, filed by a party functionary who was on board the flight, said the special flight developed ‘unexplained technical failure’. The flight could land at Hubbali airport only on the third attempt, according to the complaint. The Congress has sought a probe into the incident but a senior DGCA official said on Friday that the snag that hit Rahul Gandhi’s flight was not ‘uncommon’.
