On 'The Buck Stops Here', exclusive details of the trauma at the tarmac when two ministers - Nirmal Singh and Kiren Rijiju - delayed the Air India flight in Leh and boarded it as three genuine passengers kept waiting on the tarmac in the bus. Kiren Rijiju, speaking to NDTV, apologised to the passengers. But Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who allegedly delayed a flight to New York by 57 minutes, has remained brazen. On the show, we debate if VVIPs are above all norms? Is the VVIP strategy - come late, delay flight and blame the pilot?
