Rahul Gandhi to meet flood victims

The Congress blamed the incident on the BJP.

The relief package for Gujarat was announced because of the assembly polls there, but "he (the prime minister) did not think fit to take care of the people in Rajasthan, who are facing hardships due to the flood", a release from the party office quoted Gandhi as claiming.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's convoy was attacked by alleged BJP activists here on Friday.

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is likely to visit Gujarat this week to tour the flood-affected areas of Banaskantha.

The opposition Congress called it a "dastardly act by BJP goons" and asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi could answer the security lapse in his home state, while Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel claimedg that Gandhi denied a bullet proof auto and kept on hopping from one vehicle to another in an "irresponsible" action. The incident occurred when Gandhi was on his way to the helipad in Dhanera from Lal Chowk in flood-hit Banaskantha district.

Reacting on Twitter, Congress spokesperson RS Surjewala said it was "disgusting and disgraceful" that Rahul Gandhi's vehicle attacked by "BJP goons" in Banskantha of Guajart. "It is yet another example of intolerance exhibited by BJP and its workers openly", Azad said.

Rahul escaped unhurt in the attack in which the car's window panes were shattered. "We will not be deterred by such cowardly attempts to instil fear in us!" If any incident has happened it is unfortunate.

Earlier, the Congress shared several pictures on social media where Rahul Gandhi was seen meeting with people hit by flood in Gujarat.

The Congress has set up a control room to coordinate relief work in the flood-affected regions.

According to the notification, these districts were declared as flood-affected areas as per the provisions of "Gujarat State Disaster Management Act of 2003". None of the party MLAs have visited the district since they are away at a Bengaluru resort to avoid being poached ahead of the Rajya Sabha elections on August 8.
