Youth who threw shoe at Rahul Gandhi sent to jail

Lucknow, Sep 27 (IANS) The youth who threw a shoe at Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi during his Kisan Yatra in neighbouring Sitapur district was sent to jail on Tuesday, police said.

Hari Om Mishra will now be presented in the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Court on Wednesday.

Gandhi had claimed the shoe hurling incident was the handiwork of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bharatiya Janata Party though the assailant told police that he was miffed with Gandhi’s “lies”.

“Rahul Gandhi has been talking of loan waivers for the farmers and jobs to the unemployed while his party has ruled the country for the past 60 years … what happened during the Congress regime, they ruined the nation” he told police during interrogation, soon after his arrest.

Mishra has done a journalism course but has no job and is said to be frustrated with his unemployment.
