The (slipper) onslaught continues...

And the latest victim of the footwear frenzy is Jeetendra, the actor, who was campaigning for the Congress in Maharashtra.

On the 21st of April, Jeetendra was at a Congress road show in the town of Nandurbar, when he was at the receiving end of a slipper flying through the air which fortunately (or unfortunately) MISSED!!!!! The thrower, Dilip Ingle, was set upon by party workers, though no case was booked against him.

But its not just footwear being thrown around, biriyani is making the rounds too. A food packet (allegedly containing the above mentioned delicacy) was thrown at Congress MP Shantaram Naik, on Apil 19th, while he was at a rally at Curchorem town in Goa. The packet was thrown by Rama Gauns Desai, a party worker of the Congress, who then shouted at Naik "You all are liars", in Konkani. He was arrested and a case was registered against him, though Naik said the man might have been upset when Naik hadn't showed up at an event that Desai had invited him to.

Sorry about the late post, but my net connection was down for a day or two.
