Many politicians have come out to condemn this attack which can only be interpreted as an insensible way of protesting against a politician. Some exclaimed that it was uncivilized for people to outrightly attack people in such a manner. 

 

 

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi was facing protest from a faction of people in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh. Rahul Gandhi’s rally across UP before the elections have also seen an inundation of visitors who attend his speeches in Khaat Sabha because of the wooden cots.
