In Jharkhand where the ruling coalition comprising RJD, Congress, and JMM led by CM Hemant Soren and the opposition BJP have been at loggerheads for a long,a fresh case has cropped up.

This case is connected with BJP MPs Nishikant Dubey, Manoj Tiwari, and seven others. An FIR has been lodged against them on charges of “forcing officials” at Deoghar airport to clear their charted flight for take-off at night.”

The complainant, filed by Suman Anan, DSP, Deoghar, has alleged that they had “entered the high-security Air Traffic Control” (ATC) at Deoghar airport “without permission and used their influence to pressure officials to give clearance to their chartered plane.”

As per the rule prevalent at the newly inaugurated Deoghar airport in Jharkhand, night flight is not allowed. Following this rule, they are alleged to have “ breached national security” by bypassing safety regulations and forcibly getting clearance for his flight.

Asked why did they violate the rule, Nishikant Dubey told India Today,“The airport authority did not object. We took permission from the director of the airport I am ready to fight the case, we will put forward our side of the events.”

Notably, India Today noted that on Friday night, Dubey had entered into a Twitter spat with Deoghar District Magistrate (DM) Manjunath Bhajantri, who said the BJP leader "breached national security" by bypassing safety regulations and forcibly getting clearance for his flight.
