Shoe hurled at Union Minister


Vallabhipur (Gujarat) : A Patidaar agitation activist hurled a shoe at Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya during a public function in this town in Gujarat’s Bhavnagar district on Sunday, police said.

Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) convenor in Bhavnagar region Bhavesh Patel hurled the shoe at Mandaviya — who hails from the same district — while he was addressing a meeting organised by the Vallabhipur Municipality this afternoon.

The shoe did not hit the Minister as it fell away from the dais.         –IANS
