The newly inducted minister of state for HRD Shashi Tharoor is being pushed into the media glare once again.
Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar, slapped a man at the Thiruvananthapuram airport allegedly because the man misbehaved with her.
According to news reports, the incident took place when the couple arrived at the airport on Monday and were welcomed by a crowd of jubilant Congress workers.
A local television news channel footage available on Youtube shows an angry Sunanda slapping a man in the crowd who had apparently touched her inappropriately.
The incident follows just after slug fest between the new minister and Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi for the latter calling Sunanda Pushkar a '50-crore girlfriend'.
