New Delhi: In the Punjab State Assembly on Wednesday, lawmakers witnessed more than accusational attacks when a Congress MLA hurled a show at Punjab minister Bikram Singh Majithia.

The political athlete behind the shoe-throwing event was Congress' own Tarlochan Singh Soondh who was staging a protest against the minister. 

They were debating the no-confidence motion against Punjab's Akali Dal-BJP government as Soondh and his party members crowded around the Speaker's chair.

As the slogans continued, an agitated Soondh hurled his shoe directly at Majithia, who is the Revenue Minister in the state.
