Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh, came to the aid of an ailing pregnant women at the Guwahati airport. The CM gave up his VVIP lounge seat to the women and waited with other passengers at the common lounge.
N Biren Singh had to wait in Guwahati for sometime after the flight he was on, was hit by a bird on Friday night. He was on a return flight from New Delhi to Imphal.
Although the flight managed to land at the Guwahati airport without any incident, it could not fly further due to the damage. The CM was then led to the VVIP lounge to wait for alternative arrangements.
“I came down and a saw a pregnant women kneeling because she could not sit on a normal chair. The airline authorities had made no special arrangements for her,” the CM said. He then asked her family and his staff to let her rest in the VVIP lounge. “I was told the doctors had advised bed rest since hers was an IVF pregnancy and therefore, more delicate,” he added.
Moirangthem Thajamanbi Devi, who was also stranded, said, “We had been waiting for hours. When the officials announced the flight has been cancelled, the pregnant women was clearly in distress.” That was when the CM came to her rescue.
