A man hurled a shoe at Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday at a village in Lambi assembly constituency.
The incident took place in Rattakhera village, around 250 km from here, in the 89-year-old Chief Minister’s constituency.
The man, Gurbachan Singh, was nabbed by Badal’s security personnel and handed over to police for questioning.
It was learnt that Singh was upset over a recent incident of desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib and the failure of the Punjab government and police to nab the culprits.
Hurdling shoes at politicians has become a trend nowadays and is widely used as a medium of protest.
