Saluting 'Bharat Bandh' protestors and fasting for non-violence reflect Rahul Gandhi's dual character: Raj Minister
A human rights activist in Assam filed a police complaint Monday against Congress president Rahul Gandhi, alleging harassment of common people in the state owing to a bandh sponsored by his party on the issue of rising fuel prices, following which an FIR has been registered, police said.
Even patients on their way to hospital faced obstructions on the road due to the bandh, Mahanta, whose NGO works for the rights of destitute, elderly people and underprivileged children, said in his complaint.
The FIR was registered in the case referring to Gauhati High Court's last year verdict, which declared all strikes in the state as "illegal and unconstitutional", the officer said.
Some protesters were also seen setting up bamboo barricades to prevent movement of public vehicles, causing inconvenience to students and office-goers, officials said.
