Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's office in Kainatty near Kalpetta here was vandalized on Friday allegedly by the Students Federation of India (SFI) activists.
Indian Youth Congress, in a tweet, alleged that "goons held the flags of SFI" as they climbed the wall of Rahul Gandhi's Wayanad office and vandalized it. A protest march of the SFI, the students' wing of ruling CPI(M), against Congress MP Rahul Gandhi turned violent as a group of protestors allegedly entered the Lok Sabha member's office and vandalized it.
The student organization were protesting against the creation of buffer zones around forests in the hilly areas of Kerala.
"This happened in the presence of the police. It is a clear conspiracy by CPM leadership. For the past five days, ED has been questioning him (Rahul Gandhi) . After that I don't know why Kerala the CPI(M) is going in the way of Narendra Modi to attack him. I think CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yehcury will take necessary action," said Congress leader K.C.Venugopal reacting to the vandalization of the party office.
Meanwhile, Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan condemned the attack on Rahul Gandhi's office in Wayanad. He said,, "There is freedom for democratic protests and expressing an opinion in our land. But going in the direction of attacks is the wrong tendency. The government will take strong action against the accused.'
