Sharad Pawar Slapped
November 24, 2011 by staff
71-year-old Pawar, who went to a literary function at a public auditorium on Parliament Street, was slapped by Harvinder Singh, a transporter in his thirties who had assaulted former telecom minister Sukhram outside Rohini Court on Saturday after he was sentenced in a corruption case.
Pawar lost his balance but remained unperturbed after the assault and moved towards the exit of the auditorium and got into his waiting car.
Private security guards immediately overpowered the youth who was shouting “he is corrupt” and an official landed some blows on Singh.
“I came planned to the event to slap the minister,” Singh told reporters who had gone to cover the literary function.
“All of them are corrupt,” he shouted when he was removed from security and policemen. Wielding a small kirpan, the youth said things could have been worse but for the observance of martyrdom day of Guru Tegh Bahadur today.
Later, Pawar reacted to the incident calling it stupid and that he did not make much out of it.
