Rahul Gandhi pledges to raise Assam flood in Parliament

Rahul visits flood-hit district of Assam

"BJP goons attack Cong VP Rahulji's vehicle in Lal Chowk, Dhanera, Banaskanta, Gujarat".

Earlier, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala informed that BJP goons broke Congress VP's auto with heavy stones on his way to the helipad after meeting flood victims at Dhanera.

"Stones were thrown at the auto in which Rahul was on his way to the helipad after meeting flood victims in Dhanera area".

Gandhi, who arrived here on a day-long visit to flood-affected regions of north Gujarat, flew down to Dhanera straight from affected areas of Rajasthan and spoke to people from Manotra village as well as surrounding areas, before proceeding to the town's agriculture produce marketing yard to meet the farmers and traders there.

Some of the people gathered at the spot also raised slogans hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

On the other hand, The Banskantha SP said an FIR has been registered as unknown persons attacked Rahul Gandhi's vehicle.

Surjewala branded the attack on Gandhi's convoy "disgusting and disgraceful, accusing the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying the latter must know the truth can't be silenced".

The Gujarat government has declared both Banaskantha and Patan districts as "disaster-affected areas" following the floods due to torrential rains last week.

Bride spends honeymoon in jail after pulling gun on groom
The gun, however, was not loaded, forcing the pistol-packing bride to load a round before reportedly firing a shot into the air. This was only after she realized her weapon didn't have any bullets in it when she tried to shoot her new husband.

Responding to the incident, Rahul asked his party men to let the protesting locals come in and said that the "protest doesn't make any difference to him". He assured that the Congress will raise the matter of Assam floods in Parliament and ensure that the victims get compensated.

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.

"The Prime Minister and the Home Minister should apologise for failing to protect Rahul Gandhi who is a prominent Opposition leader and whose father and grand mother were killed at the hands of terrorists", Raja said. "We strongly condemn the act and the cult of violence for which the BJP and its cadres are famous".

"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.
