In a shocking incident on Thursday, a man hurled a shoe at BJP Rajya Sabha MP GVL Narasimha Rao when he was briefing the media at the party headquarters in Delhi.
The shoe was thrown at Rao when he was speaking about the Congress’s role in defaming Hindus by fabricating cases against Hindutva activists, including Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who has been now made the BJP candidate from Bhopal parliamentary seat. Sadhvi was associated with ABVP and Durga Vahini, the woman morcha of Vishwa Hindu Parishat.
The accused, who was sitting among the media persons, suddenly removed his shoe and hurled it at Rao. He was immediately apprehended by journalists and then taken over by security men. He reportedly identified himself as Shakti Bhargava from Kanpur and a doctor by profession. It is said that he is battling some Income Tax-related matters.
GVL Rao held the Congress responsible for the incident. Watch the incident here:
