Rahul Gandhi pledges to raise Assam flood in Parliament

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday promised the flood-affected people of Assam to raise the state's perennial problem of flood in the Parliament while demanding adequate relief and compensation to the flood-hit people from the government.

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

Rahul Gandhi said that the state government has failed to provide relief to the affected people.

The party asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi would answer about the "serious lapse" in security as Gandhi is an SPG protectee.

"Whatever we can do, will do for you", Rahul said while interacting with the villagers.

The opposition Congress called it a "dastardly act by BJP goons" and asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi could answer the security lapse in his home state, while Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel claimedg that Gandhi denied a bullet proof vehicle and kept on hopping from one auto to another in an "irresponsible" action.

Desperate to regain some ground, the Congress sent Rahul Gandhi to Gujarat, in the hopes that the Gandhi scion's presence would garner some brownie points. "One of the windows was damaged however Rahul managed to escape unhurt", the SP said adding that the person who allegedly threw a stone at Rahul's convoy has been detained. Fortunately, nobody has been hurt or wounded in the incident. "Are we reaching a space in our democracy where political opponents are not going to be allowed to practice democratic politics!"

"The Bharatiya Janata Party has done the task of liberating the country from the politics of dynasty and appeasement".
