AZAD CONDEMNS ATTACK ON SH. RAHUL GANDHI'S CAR IN GUJARAT
Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha has strongly condemned the attack by BJP workers on Sh. Rahul Gandhi, Vice President AICC, while he was travelling to visit flood affected areas of Banaskanta in Gujarat. The Damage done to the motorcade and security personnel injured clearly shows that it was a well organised attack on Rahul Gandhi to harm him physically.
We strongly condemn the act cult of violence for which the BJP and its cadres are famous. Mr. Azad said that this is being deliberately done by the BJP to create an atmosphere of fear in the state of Gujarat just before the Assembly elections.
This is yet another example of intolerance exhibited by BJP and its workers openly.
