A man hurled a shoe at BJP MP GVL Narasimha Rao during a press conference at the party headquarters in Delhi. Bhupendra Yadav and Rao were addressing media at the party headquarters. As Rao was speaking a shoe was thrown at him by a man. As of now there is no clarification why the shoe was hurled. However, the man has been identified and is said to be a doctor by profession.
He was immediately bundled out by security guards at the party office and will be handed over to police. At the time of the incident, G V L Narsimha Rao was addressing the media, attacking the Congress for defaming Hindus by foisting “false cases” on Hindutva activists, including Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur.
“This is a condemnable act by the Congress. This is yet another attempt by a Congress-inspired person who comes here to show the same kind of mentality,” Rao said after the attack.
Subsequently, the Rajya Sabha member continued with the press conference.
