Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Friday that there was engine trouble in his flight to Patna and was forced to return to the national capital due to which his election rallies will get delayed.
"Engine trouble on our flight to Patna today! We've been forced to return to Delhi. Today's meetings in Samastipur (Bihar), Balasore (Orissa) & Sangamner (Maharashta) will run late. Apologies for the inconvenience," Gandhi said in a tweet.
He also attached a video of the cockpit of the aircraft.
Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said no farmer in the country will ever go to jail over non repayment of loan if his party is voted to power.
Focusing on the farmers and the poor, Gandhi made a promise during his poll rally here in Rajasthan that the poor people would start getting Rs 72,000 soon after the elections.
Continuing his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on various issues, he asked the crowd if any of them received Rs 15 lakh as promised by the Prime Minister.
"I met the Congress Think Tank and asked for a decent figure we can promise to the country's poorest segment. They suggested a figure of Rs 72,000. The Congress has made up its mind of depositing the amount in the account of the woman member of the family," he said.
