New Delhi, Aug 5, 2017: A few Congress activists were detained on Saturday for protesting outside Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarter in Delhi against the attack on Rahul Gandhi’s convoy in Gujarat yesterday.
These workers were reportedly protesting against the administration for not filing an FIR against stone pelting in the incident.
Meanwhile reacting to the protests, VP Rahul Gandhi took to twitter and said:
but I urge them to divert their energy in helping the people affected by floods in the state

Earlier today, Gandhi said “A BJP worker threw a big stone in my direction. It hit by PSO (Personal Security Officer). It’s the Modi, BJP and RSS’ kind of politics. What more can I say?
While referring to PM Modi indirectly, Gandhi said that “Why would they condemn it when they are behind the incident”.
On Friday, Rahul Gandhi faced hostile black-flag waving crowds shouting slogans in favour of Prime Minister during his visit to flood-hit Dhanera town in Gujarat’s Banaskantha district, forcing him to beat a retreat. His car was pelted with stones, shattering some windows.
