The minister said that it was the result of Congress infighting.

The police had yesterday arrested Jayesh Darji, an office-bearer of the BJP's youth wing in Banaskantha, after his name cropped up during investigation, an official said.

Gandhi yesterday faced protests in flood-hit Gujarat where a cement brick was hurled at his vehicle allegedly by BJP supporters, breaking the window planes of his auto.

The leaders claimed that Congress leaders would not bow down to such threats or attacks and will continue to expose the misdeeds of National Democratic Alliance government in the Centre as well as Yogi Adityanath government in the state.

The attack on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has revealed the fascist face of BJP, said former chief minister Oommen Chandy.

"A BJP worker threw a big stone in my direction, it hit my personal security officer", Gandhi said while addressing reporters. My PSO got hurt.

He added that it is very clear that the BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) are getting disturbed by the tenacious efforts and campaigning of Rahul Gandhi and upsurge of Congress.

"Narendra Modi, the slogans, the black flags and the stones we don't deter (...) We put all our strength at the service of the people", he wrote. "But I urge them to divert their energy in helping the people affected by floods in the state", tweeted Rahul Gandhi.
