Himanta Sarma orders case against Rahul Gandhi over clash in Guwahati

Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has ordered a case against Rahul Gandhi after Congress workers clashed with police in the outskirts of Guwahati during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.

"I have instructed the DGP to register a case against your leader Rahul Gandhi for provoking the crowd and use the footage you have posted on your handles as the evidence," Sarma wrote in a post on X.

According to Sarma, "unruly behaviour and violation of agreed guidelines" by Congress "resulted in a massive traffic jam in Guwahati." The Assam CM had earlier said the Yatra would not be allowed to enter the city in order to avoid traffic jams.

The police, which had set up barricades at two places to prevent the Yatra from entering the city limits, had to use force to stop Congress workers who broke barricades and raised slogans.

The BJP leader slammed Congress for disturbing peace in in the state with its “naxalite tactics” that are "completely alien" to the Assamese culture.

Rahul Gandhi had addressed party supporters on the outskirts of the city, and said, "We have broken barricades, but will not break the law".

"You should not think we are weak. We have broken the barricades," he told his workers and supporters, calling them "babbar sher" (lion).

Gandhi pointed out that while BJP president J P Nadda took the same route, they were not allowed to travel on it.

"Congress workers do not fear anyone," he said, adding that "we will defeat the BJP in Assam and form the Congress government soon."
