A shoe was hurled on Thursday at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP and spokesperson G.V.L. Narasimha Rao, who blamed the Congress for the incident.

The incident took place during a press conference at the BJP headquarters here. The attacker was caught immediately.

“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.
