Raigarh: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman
Singh had a lucky escape as the aircraft carrying him made an
emergency landing due to a technical snag.

The incident occurred on Thursday evening while Singh was on his
way to Raipur from here, official sources said.

Singh had gone to Kharsiya village to attend a function
along with other party leaders, they said.

Later, when he left for Raipur, his plane suffered a
hydraulic failure and had to return to the Jindal airstrip
within 15 minutes of takeoff, the sources said.

After nearly five hours, the Chief Minister was flown to
the capital, along with other BJP leaders, in a special
aircraft, they said.
