A man hurled a shoe at BJP leader GVL Narasimha Rao during a media briefing at the party headquarters in Delhi on Thursday. GVL Narasimha Rao and other BJP leaders were addressing the media on the decision to name Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur as the party candidate from Bhopal when the man threw the shoe.
Rao was criticising the Congress at the briefing, accusing the opposition party of defaming Hindus by framing “false cases” on Hindutva activists including Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur. The man who had got himself a front-row seat at the briefing threw the shoe around this time.
He was immediately escorted out by security personnel at the BJP office and handed over to the police.
