The incident took place when Rao, a national spokesperson, was starting to brief the media at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi.
An unidentified man in pink shirt came forward from the audience, near the stage where Rao was sitting and hurled the shoe at the MP which rammed into the mic.
It was not immediately clear why the person, who identified himself as a doctor by profession, threw the shoes.
Rao, momentarily startled , continued with the briefing as the party workers dragged the man out of the conference hall.
At the time of the incident, BJP leaders Bhupendra Yadav and G V L Narsimha Rao were addressing the media with Rao attacking the Congress for defaming Hindus by foisting "false cases" on Hindutva activists, including Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur.
