A flying ban was imposed on him on Jan 28 this year for heckling journalist Arnab Goswami on a flight.
Following a directive by a union minister, airlines like IndiGo, Air India, SpiceJet and GoAir banned him after he posted a video of his encounter with Arnab Goswami, editor-in-chief of Republic TV.
In the video which went viral, Goswami was seen trying to avoid Kamra even as he continued to ask him questions and called him a ‘coward’.
“Viewers want to know if Arnab today is a coward or a nationalist. Arnab, this is for the national interest. I am part of the tukde-tukde narrative. You should deflate me. You should take the enemy of the states down. You should make sure that the country is in safe hands of Narendra Modi,” Kamra said in the video.
