Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister
Omar Abdullah, himself a victim of shoe-throwing incident, on Monday said he liked the response of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to a similar attack on him.
"I like Rahul`s reaction to the shoe throwing, `phenko,
phenko, ek aur phenko` (throw, throw one more)," Omar wrote on
micro-blogging site Twitter.
A shoe was hurled towards Gandhi by a youth while he was
addressing an election rally near Dehradun in Uttarakhand.
As security personnel and Congress supporters grabbed the
youth, Rahul was heard saying "don`t hit him".
The Congress leader also said that people perhaps thought
he would run away if shoes were hurled at him. "....throw one
more shoe," Rahul said.
The shoe fell 10 meters short of the Congress general
secretary and the attacker, identified as Kuldip, was
immediately taken into custody.
Omar has himself been a victim of shoe throwing incident
when a policeman hurled the footwear towards him while he was
presiding over Independence Day Parade at Bakshi Stadium here
Though the policeman was arrested, the Chief Minister had
later dropped the charges against him and ordered his release.
