Airlines lifted the travel ban on TDP MP JC Diwakar Reddy. The MP faced difficulties as airlines banned him from travelling through their flights over a row with an official for not issuing a board pass in Visakhapatnam Airport. Diwakar Reddy booked a special flight to cast vote in presidential elections. Union Minister Sujana Chowdary organised a meeting between MP and representatives of airlines. In the meeting, the MP explained the reasons which led to the row at the airport. Even, Union Civil Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju also intervened to end the row.
