But three scheduled flights were delayed by around 2 hours due to President of India's flight movement. "The body is waiting otherwise it'll decay".

The doctor had arrived at the airport to catch a flight to Patna to attend a funeral of her relative. On the verge of breaking down, she tells Alphons that because of the delay the dead body would start decomposing.

"Apart from the prime minister and the president, there is no protocol for any minister".

However, due to the arrival of VVIPs including President, ministers and senior bureaucrats in Imphal to attend a function the flight got delayed.

The woman, who claimed to be a doctor, was heard giving an earful to Alphons after her flight to Patna was delayed. I am a doctor, I know that.

To this, the ministry said that he could not give such things in writing as he was not authorised to do so.

"I have to reach Patna".

Confirming about the delayed flights, the director of Imphal Airport said, "Yesterday no scheduled flight was diverted or cancelled. The body is still at home", the woman can be heard pleading with Alphons, who tries to soothe her anger. "I told her that there is a protocol when President is landing no flight can take off", Alphons said on Imphal Airport incident. "Air traffic was affected for almost two hours", an official at Imphal airport said.

The woman in the video was seen screaming at the minister and few others present at the scene, while Alphons was seen trying to calm her down.

"This protocol is in place for the past 70 years and not made by this government".

At this point, Kannanthanam intervenes to tell her after another flight lands, her flight will soon take off.

According to an official at the airport, three flights were delayed and air traffic was affected for almost two hours, reported PTI.
