The Congress blamed the incident on the BJP. The Congress also said that Cement bricks were thrown at the vehicle. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced on Tuesday a total package of Rs 2,350 crore for all north eastern states for mitigating the impact of floods on short and long term basis.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi convoy was attacked by an unruly mob in Banaskatha district of Gujarat.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday met Assam flood victims in Lakhimpur region, the worst affected of the 29 districts in the state, and took stock of the relief and rehabilitation measures.

Rahul's auto was attacked with cement bricks when he was surveying flood hit areas, the Congress said.

Gandhi also visited Sanchor in Jalore in the state by helicopter and toured the flood-hit areas by road.

Congress leader Randeep Surjewala called it a "disgusting and disgraceful act" and accused BJP of the incident.

"This is being done deliberately by the BJP to create an atmosphere of fear in Gujarat just before the assembly eletcions". Stone pelters even smashed several vehicle windows of Rahul's convoy, with Rahul's auto having its rear window shattered. "It is yet another example of intolerance exhibited by BJP and its workers openly", Azad said.

He added that many people lost their loved ones and homes due to floods and so he wanted to meet them to tell them that the Congress Party is standing with the people of Gujarat. "Such incidents happen so that you don't ask real questions".

"We have detained the person who threw stones on the vehicle of Rahul Gandhi", Badgujar said.

Earlier in the day, Rahul visited the flood affected areas of Rajasthan. Former chief minister Ashok Gehlot, PCC chief Sachin Pilot, leader opposition Rameshwar Dudi and local party leaders accompanied Rahul, who also distributed food items to the flood victims.
