Bengaluru: Former Chief minister Siddaramaiah and KPCC president DK Shivakumar on Thursday condemned the assault on party leader Rahul Gandhi by Uttar Pradesh police during his foot march to Hathras.


Condemning the attack on Rahul Gandhi, Siddaramaiah in a tweet said, “A wise man once said, Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. @narendramodi & @myogiadityanath have proved that they draw inspiration from violence.”

I strongly condemn the arrest of Shri. @RahulGandhi & Smt. @priyankagandhi in Uttar Pradesh. @myogiadityanath will have to pay a price for his high handedness.”

Questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the incident, Karnataka Congress chief D.K. Shivakumar tweeted, “I condemn the assault by UP Police on our leader @RahulGandhi who is fighting to get justice for Hathras rape victim. Under what law has he been detained? Why are he & @priyankagandhi not being allowed to meet victim’s family? Why is the PM not speaking about ‘Beti Bachao’ now?”

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were on Thursday detained by the Uttar Pradesh police after they were stopped on the Yamuna Expressway in Greater Noida while walking towards Hathras to meet the rape victim’s family.


Rahul Gandhi also fell down in the scuffle after police tried to stop him and his supporters from proceeding on the Yamuna Expressway near the Jewar toll plaza. Pictures of the incident were shared by the party.
