Minister of Information and Communication Roshan Beg said ” I was sitting on the front line of the plane and the pilot informed us that rain was falling heavily at Hubli’s airport. For about half an hour our plane was held in the sky. The landing was not so good and the whole plane was be-tumbling. I thought that everything is going to be over now.
