Bharatiya Janata Party Mumbai, Apr 21 (ANI): Bollywood actor Jeetendra became the latest target of a shoe-throwing incident here on Tuesday.

Jeetendra, who was addressing a road show organised by the Congress, when someone from the crowd chucked a slipper at him.

Jeetendra was campaigning for the former Minister Amrish Patel who is contesting from the Dhule parliamentary constituency.

Party activists immediately pounced on the offender - identified as Dilip Ingle - and took him away. The motive behind his slipper chucking was not clear.

On April 16, a shoe was flung at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Lal Krishna Advani during a rally in Madhya Pradesh.

Earlier this month, Home Minister P. Chidambaram and Congress MP Naveen Jindal were targeted by people who expressed their anger by throwing footwear at them. (ANI)
