Rahul Gandhi finds fault with Rajasthan's flood rehabilitation work

Rahul Gandhi pledges to raise Assam flood in Parliament

Banaskantha Superintendent of Police Neeraj Badgujar said unknown persons threw stones at Gandhi's auto, breaking its rear glass when he on his way from Lal Chowk to the helipad in Dhanera.

After the Congress alleged that "BJP goons" were behind the stone attack on Gandhi's vehicle, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said the opposition party should not "abuse" people who are "angry" over the floods and "tired" of Rahul Gandhi's politics.

Some of the people gathered at the spot also raised slogans hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The incident happened in Banaskantha area when Rahul Gandhi was also show black flags. "Disgusting & disgraceful", he wrote on the micro-blogging website.

BJP spokesman Sambit Patra said it was incorrect for the Congress to claim that the attack was carried out by goons. "We don't know whether the attack was real or orchestrated", BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said.

The Congress is likely to raise the issue during the ongoing monsoon session of Parliament and dem-and the government to explain the security lapse.




"Rahulji is an SPG protectee".

Appreciating Centre's financial assistance to flood victims in Gujarat, Rahul said similar help should have been extended to victims in Rajasthan.

Another party leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi accused alleged that BJP "goons" were behind the "dastardly" attack. "We strongly condemn the incident".

"Are we reaching a space in our democracy where political opponents are not allowed to practise democratic politics in terms of visiting areas and voicing opinion without any intimidation and throwing of bricks?" he said.

"The Bharatiya Janata Party has done the task of liberating the country from the politics of dynasty and appeasement".
