In a startling turn of events, Congress leader and Member of Parliament, Rahul Gandhi, encountered a harrowing incident during his ‘Bharat Joko Nyan Yatra’ in West Bengal’s Malda district. The journey, aimed at connecting with the people, took an unexpected and alarming turn when some individuals launched an attack on Rahul Gandhi’s vehicle with stones.

The incident unfolded in the Harishchandrapur area of Malda as the Yatra re-entered West Bengal from Bihar. The assailants targeted the rear window of Rahul Gandhi’s car, resulting in its shattering. However, the silver lining in this unfortunate episode is that Rahul Gandhi himself emerged unscathed, escaping any injuries.

Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary, addressing the media in the aftermath of the attack, expressed concern over the police’s purported neglect during the incident. Chaudhary revealed that stones were hurled at the vehicle from the crowd, and despite the gravity of the situation, the police seemed to be indifferent. He underscored the potential dangers of such negligence, emphasizing that what might be perceived as a small incident could escalate into a more significant and perilous event if not addressed promptly.

The attack on Rahul Gandhi’s convoy raises questions about the security measures in place during political leaders’ public engagements. The incident serves as a reminder of the challenges and risks associated with political rallies and yatras, emphasizing the need for heightened vigilance and security arrangements.

As the news of the attack circulates, it has sparked discussions about the safety of political figures during public events and the imperative for authorities to ensure the protection of leaders engaging with the public. The incident, while alarming, stands as a testament to the unpredictable nature of political landscapes and the need for robust security protocols.
