"What was the objective behind it? It had no significance during Gujarat elections. The seaplane came all the way from the US to Pakistan, and then to Mumbai to the river front in Gujarat," he said. "How can the Prime Minister fly on a sea-plane without taking the SPG along. To win elections, he can go to extent. Both the pilots were foreigners," he added.
