Actor and dancer Sudhaa Chandran recently urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to issue a card to senior citizens so that they are not grilled at the airport. This comes after she revealed that airport authorities asked her to remove her prosthetic leg and show it to the CISF officers stationed at the airport. Now, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) apologised to the actor for the incident on Twitter. Replying to a news report, the authority wrote, “We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused to Ms Sudhaa Chandran. As per protocol, prosthetics are to be removed for security checks only under exceptional circumstances. We’ll examine why the lady personnel concerned requested Sudhaa Chandran to remove prosthetics and assure that no inconvenience is caused to travelling passengers.”Also Read - PM Modi 'Tested' Thrice For Covid, Amit Shah Twice And Priyanka Chopra 6 Times in Bihar's Arwal

On Friday, the 56-year-old actor shared a video on Instagram where she said, “Good evening, this is a very personal note that I want to tell to our dear Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji, this is an appeal to the central government, I am Sudhaa Chandran, an actress, and dancer by profession, who has danced with an artificial limb and created history and made my country very proud of me. But every time that I go on my professional visits, each time, am stopped at the airport and when I request them at the security, to the CISF officers that please do an ETD (Explosive Trace Detector) for my artificial limb, they still want me to remove my artificial limb and show it to them. Is this humanly possible, Modi ji? Is this what our country is talking about? Is this the respect that a woman gives to another woman in our society? It is my humble request to you Modi ji that please give senior citizens a card that says they are senior citizen” Also Read - India, Russia Sign Record 28 MoUs, Programme of Cooperation In Defence For 10 Years | Key Points
