Rahul Gandhi’s Wayanad Office Vandalised, Congress Alleges SFI’s Involvment

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.”

Pictures that are said to have been taken at the time of the event show photo frames and other items scattered all over Gandhi’s office floor.

Additionally, the Youth Congress published another image supporting its criticism of the SFI.

“One can watch the goons holding the flags of SFI as they climb the wall of Sh. Rahul Gandhi Ji’s Wayanad office and vandalises it,” the wing wrote on Twitter.

The party also urged Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to take disciplinary action as they protested and denounced the assault on Friday.

Reacting to the same, Congress’ Shashi Tharoor wrote, “Would Vijayan and Sitaram Yechury take disciplinary action or let their silence condone such behaviour? Is this their idea of politics?”

Meanwhile, Manickam Tagore tweeted, “It is lawlessness and goondaism. CPM has turned into an organised mafia. Strongly Condemning the attack.”
