Fighting with a shoe

Two legislators from India’s ruling party were set to be disciplined for fighting with a shoe after video of the incident was widely shared on social media. The shoe spat has caused embarrassment for the Bharatiya Janata Party led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Shoes are considered unclean in the country, and using footwear to attack another person is seen as very offensive. Both lawmakers have apologised, but they were expected to face “strict disciplinary action” as they were summoned to Lucknow, the capital of India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
