Shoe-case for L.K. Advani

A Bad remark by the party men.

Apology is expected.

A slipper was on Thursday thrown at BJP leader LK Advani by a former functionary of the same party during a public meeting in Madhya Pradesh, the latest in the series of such episodes involving political leaders.

The slipper was hurled by former Katni district president of BJP Pawas Agarwal, who allegedly was aggrieved at the party leadership for being "removed from his post due to groupism within the party," police said.He threw the slipper shortly after Advani reached the dais.

Soon after the incident, he was taken to the backside of the stage and then whisked away by the police.

The incident comes close on the heels of a journalist throwing a shoe at home minister P Chidambaram during a press conference in New Delhi and a retired school principal lobbing a footwear at Congress candidate in Kurukshetra Navin Jindal during a poll rally.
