"Let me say that Rahul and the Congress won't be intimidated by such tactics", Sharma said as he showed a piece of concrete allegedly hurled at Rahul's vehicle in Gujarat on Friday. "It is a murderous attack by the BJP and the RSS", he said.

Elections are due in December in Gujarat, which Mr. Modi is originating, and the party of the Prime minister hoped to keep the power. They dispersed only after police announced the arrest of one person in this connection. "Darji is the secretary of Banaskantha district BJP Yuva Morcha".

Addressing the protesters, Maken said that the Friday attack in Bansakantha district was not just on Rahul Gandhi or the Congress but an attack on India's democracy. He pointed out that Gandhi is a national leader and his security was the responsibility of the BJP-led Gujarat government which has deliberately neglected it. Rahul was travelling with SPG commandos some of whom were reportedly injured in the attack as they were sitting in the back. The Congress leader's auto was pelted with stones which had shattered some windows.
