New Delhi, Aug 4 (IANS) Condemning the attack on party Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s car in Banaskantha in Gujarat, the Congress on Friday said that “violence and physical attack have become BJP’s culture”.
In a series of tweets, Congress spokseperson Randeep Singh Surjewala alleged the attack was an organised act by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) activists.
“BJP goons attack Congress Vice President Rahulji’s car in Lal Chowk, Dhanera, Banaskanta, Gujarat. Disgusting and disgraceful,” said Surjewala on his Twitter page.
“With 218 deaths in Gujarat, 61 in Bansakanta alone, Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) only does an aerial visit while CM takes five days to visit. BJP only attacks opposition,” he wrote attaching pictures of broken windowpanes of Gandhi’s car.
Surjewala said: “Windowpanes of Congress Vice President’s car broken in an organised attack by goons, security staff injured. BJP must know truth can’t be silenced.”
“Violence and physical attack have become BJP’s culture. Congress and Rahulji get more determined to raise people’s voice after every attack,” he said.
Rahul Gandhi on Friday faced hostile black flag-waving crowds shouting slogans in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his tour of flood-hit Dhanera town in Gujarat’s Banaskantha district, forcing him to beat a hasty retreat.
