Throwing shoes at (so-called) personalities has become a thing of the past after Harvinder Singh, a common man, slapped Union Agricultural Minister Sharad Pawar in Delhi. He was the same person who slapped Sukhram last Saturday.
The incident would have not gained this much attention if the NCP party-workers hadn’t reacted in this manner. By damaging public property (setting tyres ablaze, breaking shops, etc) and doing rasta-roko, they have made the incident more famous. In other words, the party-men made sure Pawar’s humiliation became a much bigger one than it was intended to be.
Few years back, a gentleman had hurled a shoe at ex-US President George Bush. This started an unusual trend since after that, few other (some so-called) personalities were attacked in the same manner. So, will Harvinder’s act start a much bigger fad of big names getting slapped? Let’s wait and watch!
This is the video of Sharad Pawar getting slapped by Harvinder Singh: –
