A slipper was thrown at actor turned politician Pawan Kalyan at Tallada, as he was touring Telangana's Khammam district on Wednesday. 

While the miscreant was not identified, the slipper did not hit Pawan Kalyan, and landed on the bonnet of his car.

Pawan was waving to the crowd from his car when the incident occurred. While there was a minor commotion, the police said that they swung into action and managed to control the crowd.

In yet another incident, the Jana Sena party chief’s vehicle ran over the foot of a sub-inspector who was on ‘bandobust’ duty near Khammam city.

Reports suggest that Pawan Kalyan did not realise that the incident had occurred, and later sent his personal assistant to check on the police officer. He also asked the latter to shift to Hyderabad for better treatment if necessary.

Pawan is presently on his 'Chalo re Chal' yatra, that plans to tour parts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, before his full-fledged foray into politics when he plans to contest the 2019 election. 

Pawan launched his 'praja yatra' at Kondagattu in Jagtiyal district, after offering prayers at a local temple. 

It was in this town that he had a narrow escape when a high-tension wire fell on him during campaigning in the 2009 elections. He was then campaigning for Praja Rajyam, the party floated by his elder brother Chiranjeevi.

The Jana Sena chief will continue his 'yatra' in Telangana and plans to launch the 'yatra' in Andhra Pradesh on January 27.

He has announced his party will contest the 2019 elections in both the Telugu states.

Stating that Andhra Pradesh and Telangana were no different, the actor-politician said that in both the states his party would do responsible politics.

Reiterating that he will not criticise other parties just for the sake of criticism, he said the Jana Sena would study the people's problems and try to resolve them by bringing them to the notice of the respective governments.
