Congress condemns attack on Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat

Rahul Gandhi pledges to raise Assam flood in Parliament

Gandhi, the son of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, was touring the flood-affected district in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state when a group of people pelted stones at his auto, damaging the window panes.

He took a ride on a country boat to assess the trail of destruction left by the flood in the area and also talked to a section of flood-affected people. Congress will ensure that its demands for aid to flood victims were fulfilled by the BJP governments, said Pilot.

An SPG protectee, Rahul was travelling with SPG commandos some of whom were reportedly injured in the attack.

Reacting sharply, former PM Manmohan Singh said, "I condemn the attack on Mr Gandhi in Gujarat".

In his reaction, senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia wrote of his twitter account @JM_Scindia, "Attack on @OfficeOfRG absolutely shameful and unacceptable". The ones who are scared are the ones who do not want to see the truth, or acknowledge it, we are not scared by such cowards' attempts. The party has accused BJP "goons" behind the incident. "This is absolutely false". I don't think BJP is behind this, said BJP MP Jagdambika Pal.

Speaking about the development, Congress party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, "BJP goons attack Congress VP Rahulji's vehicle in Lal Chowk, Dhanera, Banaskanta, Gujarat". The MLAs themselves could not visit the area since they are in a luxury resort in Bengaluru.
