Morigaon, Sept 10: An activist of a non government organisation (NGO) had lodged an FIR with Morigaon Sadar police station against All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Rahul Gandhi alleging harassment of common people in the state owing to a bandh sponsored by his party to protest against fuel price hike.
The president of Sahai Raju Mahanta alleged in the FIR that the Congress leaders violated the rights of the common people in the state. “Even patients on their way to hospital faced obstructions on the road due to the bandh,” Mahanta said.
“A case has been registered against Gandhi on the basis of the FIR,” a senior police officer said.
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.
