Congress MLAs following Rahul Gandhi's 'vacation mode', says Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani

Rahul was touring the flood-affected Banaskantha district of Gujarat when his cavalcade came under attack from a mob that pelted stones.

Rahul escaped unhurt in the attack which left the rear window panes of the auto broken.

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

Talking to the media here, Banaskantha Superintendent of Police Neeraj Badgujar said, "Unknown persons started to pelt stones at that vehicle which broke a glass of Rahul Gandhi's auto".

Surjewala branded the attack on Gandhi's convoy "disgusting and disgraceful, accusing the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying the latter must know the truth can't be silenced".

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi accused the BJP "goons" of carrying out the "dastardly" attack.

Rahul was on a day-long visit to flood-affected regions of Gujarat. This is being deliberately done by the BJP to create an atmosphere of fear in the state of Gujarat just before the assembly elections.

Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and state Congress President Sachin Pilot accompanied him. "This is yet another example of intolerance exhibited by the BJP and its workers openly".

Banaskantha, one of the areas in Gujarat worst affected by the flood, has six Congress lawmakers but they are at a resort in Bengaluru, away from the drama of Rajya Sabha polls.

The Youth Congress staged a protest near the BJP headquarters in New Delhi, demanding "dismissal" of the Gujarat government over an alleged attack on Rahul Gandhi in the western state on Friday.

However, the BJP has brushed aside the allegations and termed it as an unfortunate incident.
