    Nagpur: A New Delhi-bound flight carrying Union minister Nitin Gadkari failed take off from Nagpur airport in Maharashtra on Tuesday due to a "technical fault", an official said.

    Reference to NITIN Gadkari for flight aborting take off due to technical snag is irrelevant. This shows the myopic views of reporters.
