We had gone so long without an extremely stupid comment by a minister, I had actually started getting worried about their well being, but well, the comeback was worth it. Recently, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Puri made one of the most illogical comments during this coronavirus pandemic and I'm impressed at how absurd it is.

Since domestic air travel is starting from May 25th, preparations for restarting have been going on. Talking about that, he was quoted by Press Trust of India saying that even the middle seats won't be left empty on flights.
