In response to a Supreme Court order requiring protected forest tracts and wildlife sanctuaries to have an eco-sensitive zone one kilometer from their boundaries, SFI activists marched and demanded his intervention on behalf of farmers. This is when the incident happened.
Wayanad: In the late afternoon of Friday, June 24, senior congressman Rahul Gandhi’s MP office in Kerala’s Wayanad was vandalized.
The Students’ Federation of India (SFI), the student wing of the in power Communist Party of India (Marxist), is accused by the party of being involved in the attack.
Speaking to news agency ANI after the attack, Congress leader KC Venugopal said, “Today around 3 pm, a group of SFI workers and leaders forcefully encroached on the office of Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi. They attacked the office people, Rahul Gandhi’s staff brutally. We don’t know the reason.”
We strongly condemn the attack on Shri @RahulGandhi ji's office in Wayanad by CPIM goons.
Instead of responding to the corruption allegations in multiple scams, CM Pinarayi Viajayan responded with violence.
