Congress holds protest, condemns attack on Rahul

The Mumbai Youth Congress workers threw flowers inside Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) office Iin Gatkopar and shouted slogan against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. Reacting to the attack on his auto, Rahul Gandhi tweeted that black flags and stones can't deter Congress. Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi accused the BJP "goons" of carrying out the "dastardly" attack. "Attack on me was carried out by the BJP and RSS people".

Gandhi also faced hostile black-flag waving crowd shouting slogans in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his tour of flood-hit Dhanera town, forcing the Congress to cancel a scheduled public meeting. The accused was identified as BJP youth wing general secretary of the Palanpur unit, Jayesh Darji, reported the Hindustan Times.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday urged the party workers to call off the protest staged by them across the nation against the attack on his convoy.
