A day after his convoy was attacked in Gujarat, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on 5 August cornered the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said it was Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) way of politics.
Rahuls' car was attacked on 4 August when he was on his way to the helipad after visiting the flood-hit areas in Gujarat.
"In yesterday's incident, BJP workers threw a stone at me which hit my personal security officer (PSO). This is Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP-RSS's way of politics. What can I say?" Rahul told media.
Indirectly referring to Prime Minister PM Modi, Rahul said, "Why the one, who has done this, would condemn the incident?"
After Rahul's car was attacked, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala alleged that BJP goons pelted heavy stones at Rahul's car when he was on his way to the helipad after meeting flood victims at Gujarat's Dhanera.
Following the attack, Rahul took to Twitter and wrote, "Narendra Modi ji's slogans, black flags and stones will not stop us.... We will put in all our might into the service of people."
