Delhi Shoe hurled at BJP GVL Narasimha Rao during presser

Man hurls shoes at BJP leaders during press conference

A man flung shoes at BJP leaders addressing a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Delhi today (Thursday, April 18). The reason behind his act is not still unknown; the man, who threw the shoes on BJP leader, has identified himself as 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, BJP leaders Bhupendra Yadav and G V L Narsimha Rao were addressing the media with Rao attacking the Congress for defaming Hindus by foisting “false cases” on Hindutva activists, including Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur.

Sadhvi Pragya Thakur yesterday joined Bharatiya Janata Party and it is being speculated that she will contest the Lok Sabha polls from Bhopal, from where the Congress has fielded party senior leader and former MP CM Digvijaya Singh.

Though there is no official announcement from the party yet, Thakur told reporters that Digvijaya Singh was no challenge for her. “I would contest and win for sure,” she added. Thakur visited the BJP office in Bhopal today to meet senior leaders such as Ram Lal, Prabhat Jha and Narottam Mishra.

“Whoever is working against the nation, we all would fight against them and would defeat them,” Singh told reporters. “Jab rashtra surakshit hoga, hum sab surakhsit honge. Tab hi hum apna kaam kar payenge {When the nation is safe, we all would be safe and would be able to discharge our duties}.”

Alok Sanjar, the current BJP parliamentarian from Bhopal, said the party fully backed her and would ensure her victory from the seat. “No allegation was proved against her. A woman was harassed. Now it’s time for revenge,” Sanjar told the media.

Digvijaya Singh, who has always been vocal against the BJP and is also one among those who now and again uses the term, ‘Saffron Terror’ will be contesting the Lok Sabha Polls from Bhopal over the challenge by MP CM Kamal Nath.

The BJP has never lost in Bhopal since 1989, though it has a sizeable Muslim population. Digvijaya Singh was asked by his party colleague, Chief Minister Kamal Nath, to contest from tough seats like Bhopal or Indore, where the Congress hasn’t won in years. Challenge accepted, was Digvijaya Singh’s response, and he was named for Bhopal.
