IA denies Antony ticket

NEW DELHI, MAY 20. The Kerala Chief Minister, Mr. A.K. Antony, who arrived here this evening on his first visit to the capital after assuming office, was denied a ticket by Indian Airlines on Government account.

Indian Airlines has stopped issuing tickets to Kerala Government on credit as the State Government owed a huge amount to the airlines. When the ticket was denied, Mr. Antony arranged a ticket from a private travel agency and flew to Delhi in the Indian Airlines itself.
