Union Minister Nitin Gadkari was among the passengers on an IndiGo flight that did not fly out this morning because of a "serious mistake" discovered by the pilot.
The flight of IndiGo 6E 636 from Nagpur to Delhi was a landing moment when the pilot was notified of an error. The pilot interrupted the take-off and the aircraft returned from the runway to the runway. Nitin Gadkari, the road transport minister, and 158 other passengers were deactivated.
The second attempt to take off from the pilot also failed, according to the Indian Press Center.
The flight was scheduled to depart at 7.50 am and land at Delhi at 9.35 am
A senior official at Nagpur Airport, Vijay Mulekar, was quoted as saying by the Indian Trust Trust that the flight to Delhi had not departed due to a "technical error".
"Subsequently, at about 10.30, the flight made a second attempt to take off, but was again pushed back due to the technical prison," Mr Mullecar said.
Mr Gadkari is a BJP Lok Sabha MP from Nagpur.
