Throwing shoes at political leaders to register protest is quite in fashion these days.
On Sunday, a computer engineering student hurled his footwear at Mr Singh who was addressing a public meeting in Paldi area of Ahmedabad. The youth, identified has Hitesh Chauhan, was later forgiven by PM, who asked authorities not to take any action against him. The incident happened on a hot afternoon when PM was addressing a select audience of party workers at Sanskar Kendra.
The incident took place few minutes after the PM started his address. Manmohan Singh visited Ahmedabad for the first time in connection with ongoing general elections.
