"It is their style of politics, what can I say", said Gandhi, the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty that ruled India for decades through the Congress party.

The glass pane at the rear of his auto was shattered as a piece of stone smashed through it when Gandhi was on his way to the helipad in Dhanera from Lal Chowk in flood-ravaged Banaskantha district, police said. I hope and pray that our leaders do not get swayed by the temptations put forward by these forces and keep the people of the state and the peaceful atmosphere in mind and stay away from the proponents of the Hindu Rashtra.

Condemning the attack on Congress Vice President, former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh said, "Political violence has no place in a functioning democracy". Meanwhile, Congress workers also protested outside BJP headquarter in Delhi against the attack.

When asked why the prime minister had not condemned the incident yet, Gandhi said, "It is done by their people so why would they condemn it".

The news was confirmed by Congress Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala who took to Twitter to share the pictures of the incident.

"BJP goons attack Cong VP Rahulji's vehicle in Lal Chowk, Dhanera, Banaskanta, Gujarat".

"In yesterday's incident, BJP workers threw such a huge stone that my personal security officer was injured".

"Why has national leadership of BJP not condemned the attack on Rahul Gandhi's auto?" he further tweeted. This is Modi ji, BJP's and RSS's way of politics.

"The attack on Rahul Gandhi is very controversial".

The BJP, however, said it was an unfortunate incident and the party had no role to play in it.

Rahul was on visit to the flood-hit Jalore district in Rajasthan in the morning and moved to the Banaskantha district in the afternoon for interaction with the flood-raged villagers.

Senior party leader Anand Sharma said such attacks not only deserved serious condemnation but also the exposure of the intent, ideology, characteristic of the BJP and the RSS.

Condemning the attack, Congress has demanded that PM Modi must apologise for the attack.
