Union Minister Shashi Tharoor was on Friday heckled by BJP women workers, who were protesting against lack of safety for women, at a function in New Delhi to mark International Women’s Day.

As Mr. Tharoor arrived at Talkatora stadium in his car to attend the function organised by Delhi Commission for Women, slogan shouting members of BJP’s Mahila Morcha blocked his way and banged their hands on the vehicle.

Reacting to the incident, Mr. Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar said, “Why are they making noise? What wrong has he done? It is told that they have damaged his car. We did not like this behaviour.”

Mr. Tharoor was later seen sitting in the audience.
