"In current political scenarios some political parties, Congress party in particular is even politicising the calamity like floods", said BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra. The people were only venting their anger at the Cpngress leader, the party said.

Congress leader Sachin Pilot also lashed out at the BJP on Twitter saying: "What sort of politics is the BJP govt practicing?" "BJP goons attack Cong VP Rahulji's vehicle in Lal Chowk, Dhanera, Banaskanta, Gujarat". He tweeted, " Rahul Gandhi's leadership style is working wonders in his party.

CM Rupani further took a dig at Rahul Gandhi saying his influence was working wonders in the party following which all the Congress MLA's are on a "vacation mode". "We don't know whether the attack was real or orchestrated", BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said. "It is yet another example of intolerance exhibited by BJP and its workers openly", Azad said. "We will not be deterred by such cowardly attempts to instil fear in us!"

However, the BJP has brushed aside the allegations and termed it as an unfortunate incident. "This is absolutely false". It was a dastardly attack for no other reason than that Rahul Gandhi was visiting a flood affected area. "Such incidents happen so that you don't ask real questions".

Congress vice-president came to the state this morning to make an on-the-spot study of the flood situation and talk to the flood-affected people in the worst-hit Lakhimpur district of eastern Assam. None of the party MLAs have visited the district since they are away at a Bengaluru resort to avoid being poached ahead of the Rajya Sabha elections on August 8.
