Political tension during this Lok Sabha elections seems to be high that some people have resorted to physical violence against politicians they are unhappy with. Few days after Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal was slapped by an Aam Aadmi Party supporter during a roadshow, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu was attacked by a woman with footwear.
While addressing a rally in Rohtak, a woman threw a slipper at the Punjab minister for speaking against PM Narendra Modi. Although she had missed her target, the woman was detained by police present at the spot. She told the police that she threw the slipper because the politicians were talking against PM Modi.
