They are associated with the ruling BJP and are among the conspirators of the attack, the Congress members alleged.

Gandhi said he was undeterred by the attack.

Talking to the media, Banaskantha Superintendent of Police Neeraj Badgujar said, "Unknown persons started to pelt stones at that auto which broke a glass of Rahul Gandhi's vehicle".

The police had yesterday arrested Jayesh Darji, an office-bearer of the BJP's youth wing in Banaskantha, after his name cropped up during investigation, an official said.

"Darji is the secretary of Banaskantha district BJP Yuva Morcha".

Taking to Twitter, Rahul said that he respects the sentiments of Congress workers who are protesting against the Centre against the stone pelting. "When they have themselves done it, how will they condemn it?" he asked.

Congress workers staged protests across the nation today including in Gujarat capital Ahmedabad, Punjab capital Chandigarh, Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal and Maharashtra capital Mumbai.

A crowd waving black flags tried to stop the convoy of Mr. Gandhi on Friday in a region of Gujarat recently affected by deadly floods, shattering the windows of his auto, according to images broadcast by television.

"In Friday's incident, BJP workers threw such a huge stone that my personal security officer was injured".

Another Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma said that Congress was a 140 years old party and it will not get scared and intimidated by such attacks. "This is the style of politics of Modiji, BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) and the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh)", Gandhi said outside the Parliament where Vice Presidential election was underway.

"In a democracy there is no room for violence and attack against political leaders". The people who waved black flags at him also booed him out by chanting Modi-Modi slogans. "But I urge them to divert their energy in helping the people affected by floods in the state", tweeted Rahul Gandhi.

The Congress MLA from the area, Joitabhai Patel, is in Bengaluru along with 43 party legislators who have been flown to the southern city to fend off what the Congress claimed were poaching attempts ahead of the August 8 Rajya Sabha polls.
