Vallabhipur (Gujarat): A Patidaar agitation activist hurled a shoe at Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya during a public function in this town in Gujarat's Bhavnagar district on Sunday, police said.

Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) convenor in Bhavnagar region Bhavesh Patel hurled the shoe at Mandaviya -- who hails from the same district -- while he was addressing a meeting organised by the Vallabhipur Municipality this afternoon.

The shoe did not hit the Minister as it fell away from the dais.

Patel was immediately taken into custody by the police present on the scene and was prevented from speaking to the media.

His gesture was believed to be part of the on-going two-year-old quota agitation led by Hardik Patel's PAAS, which has been trying to use every opportunity to demonstrate their opposition to the state's BJP government.
