The Congress party has alleged that party's Vice President Rahul Gandhi's vehicle was attacked by "BJP goons" in Lal Chowk, Dhanera, Banaskanta, Gujarat.

Rahul escaped unhurt in the attack in which the car's window panes were shattered. He was travelling with SPG Commandos and some of whom were reportedly injured in the attack as they were sitting in the back.

Neeraj Badgujar, Banaskantha SP, said a stone was thrown at the auto in which Rahul was on his way to the helipad after meeting flood victims at Dhanera. "We don't know whether the attack was real or orchestrated", BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said.

This is being deliberately done by the BJP to create an atmosphere of fear in the state of Gujarat just before the assembly elections.

The Congress leader was accompanied by other Congress leaders Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot and party workers.
