It all started with a boot being hurled at George W. Bush and the so called trend has soon spread like wild fire world over. After the numerous shoe throwing incidences in India, this time it was yesteryear's star Jeetendra who was the latest target when a slipper was thrown at him during a Congress party road show in a Maharashtra town on Tuesday.
Jeetendra was addressing a road show that was organized by the Congress candidate Manikrao Gavit in the town of Nandurbar, when someone from the crowd chucked a slipper at him.
The congregation gathered was over 3000 in strength, so figuring out who actually threw the slipper at the actor was hard to figure. However, party activists immediately pounced on the offender - apparently identified as Dilip Ingle - and took him away.
While the motive behind his slipper chucking was not clear, Jeetendra surely must be one unhappy man with the treatment meted out to him.
