Srinagar: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s car was pelted with stones while he was travelling during his tour to the flood-affected areas of Gujarat, The Indian Express reported on Friday.
As per the report window panes of the car were broken in the attack, but Rahul Gandhi escaped unhurt as he was sitting in the front seat. Rahul was travelling with SPG commandos some of whom were reportedly injured in the attack as they were sitting in the back.
“BJP goons attack Congress VP Rahulji’s car in Lal Chowk, Dhanera, Banaskanta, Gujarat. Disgusting and disgraceful. Windowpanes of Congress VP’s car broken in an organized attack by goons, security staff injured. BJP must know truth can’t be silenced,” report quoting party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
The BJP, however, said it was an unfortunate incident and the party had no role in it. “This is absolutely false. If any incident has happened it is unfortunate. I don’t think BJP is behind this,” reportedly said BJP MP Jagdambika Pal.
