Shoe thrown at Advani by party worker
Katni (Madhya Pradesh):  A slipper was on Thursday lobbed at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Lal Krishna Advani by a former functionary of the saffron party during a public meeting in Katni, the latest in the series of such episodes involving political leaders, but it did not hit him.

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, they said.

Soon after the incident, he was taken to the rear 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 headmaster lobbing a footwear at Kurukshetra Congress candidate Navin Jindal during a poll rally.
