Stone hurled at Rahul Gandhi's auto in Gujarat; Congress blames 'BJP goons'

Sanchore (Rajasthan), Aug 4 (IANS) Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday visited the flood affected villages in Jalore district of Rajasthan. Stone pelters even smashed several vehicle windows of Rahul's convoy, with Rahul's auto having its rear window shattered. Sitting in the front seat, he was travelling with elite Special Protection Guard commandos, some of whom were reportedly injured, said The Indian Express.

The incident occurred when Gandhi was on his way to the helipad in Dhanera from Lal Chowk in flood-hit Banaskantha district.

The BJP, however, said it was an unfortunate incident and the party had no role in it. The Congress blamed the incident on the state's ruling BJP.

Congress said it was an organised attack by goons in which even the security staff were injured. The people were only venting their anger at the Cpngress leader, the party said.

Inquiry into Trump and Russian Federation ramps up with appointment of Grand Jury

Russian official threatens retaliation over USA sanctions
The House of Repsentatives endorsed the bill on July 25 and the Senate did it on July 27 without introducing any changes in it. It said Trump had familiarized himself with earlier versions of the bill and had held talks on its crucial provisions.

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

Addressing the villagers and the media, Rahul Gandhi said that he was in Assam the other day, Rajasthan on Friday and now in Gujarat. An attack under Gujarat BJP Govt's watch reflects not only serious lapse but tacit complicity.

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.

Meanwhile, Gujarat Congress president Bharatsinh Solanki today visited Deesa town of Banaskantha district, where he interacted with the party workers about the ongoing relief work being carried out by the party in the region.
