Politicians fly high on private chartered planes !

Brazenly flouting Election Commission (EC) rules prominent politicians and their families frequently use private and chartered aircraft owned by corporate houses to fly around the country. The fact was revealed in a Cobrapost investigation that was culled from RTIs from airports under the Airports Authority of India. The report listed these most prominent frequent flyers including Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Congress VP Rahul Gandhi, BJP president Rajnath Singh, BJP veteran LK Advani, NCP boss Sharad Pawar and foreign minister Sushma Swaraj, among scores of others that include state party politicians CMs, MPs, and MLAs. It was also found that over 100 politicians used private planes and the list was endless with netas from every state in every party using the disallowed facility, despite air charter companies declaring running losses as learned from the Registrar of Companies data that showed that Charter companies who filed balance sheets claimed they were running huge losses.
