Congress president Rahul Gandhi, on Friday morning, tweeted that his aircraft to Patna was forced to return to Delhi because of engine trouble. Rahul said return to the national capital meant that his election rallies in Bihar, Odisha and Maharashtra would be delayed. "Today’s meetings in Samastipur (Bihar), Balasore (Odisha) and Sangamner (Maharashta) will run late. Apologies for the inconvenience," he wrote.

The tweet also accompanied a video which shows a flight in turbulence and where he can be heard saying, "Tweet it out, otherwise they will say you were delayed."

Post his rallies in Uttar Pradesh, where he had fired a fresh salvo at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Congress leader was scheduled to address a public meeting in Patna at around 10:30 am on Friday.

This, however, is not the first time that a plane carrying Rahul had faced problem. In 2018, his plane from Delhi to Hubli in Karnataka had "malfunctioned" even as several technical errors occurred during the course of the flight. The Congress had then filed a police complaint after the aircraft made a rough landing, endangering the life of passengers.
