Jalore (Rajasthan), Aug 04 (ANI): Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday visited flood-hit areas in Jalore district of Rajasthan.

"Gujarat government has no right to remain in power if it cannot protect a leader like Rahul Gandhi".

According to Banaskantha Superintendent of Police Neeraj Badgujar, a man threw stones at Rahul gGandhi's auto, breaking its rear glass when Gandhi was on his way from Lal Chowk to the helipad in Dhenera but Mr. Gandhi escaped unhurt as he was sitting in front seat. AICC media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala shared the images on his Twitter and claimed that it was a political vendetta by the BJP goons.

AICC spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said this attack has to be condemned and seen for what it is an authoritarian, dictatorial regime which brooks no dissent.

Though the Nehru-Gandhi scion escaped unhurt in the attack in the state's Banaskantha district, a few of the security personnel accompanying him in his sports utility vehicle (SUV) sustained injuries, a senior police official said.

However, BJP has denied any kind of involvement in the incident and said that it was an unfortunate incident. "I don't think BJP is behind this", reportedly said BJP MP Jagdambika Pal. The worry is not just about defections in his party, but also the glaring omission of Congress MLAs at a time when the state is dealing with heavy rainfall and floods.
