After ordering Assam Police to register a case against Rahul Gandhi, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma shared a video where the Congress leader can be seen "provoking the mob to attack" security personnel.

In the video, Gandhi can be heard saying, "You see, there was a barricade, we have thrown it away." Another Congress leader Jitendra Singh said, "We have broken the barricade and did all work, victory is ours."

Sarma wrote on X, "Evidence is emerging as to how Rahul Gandhi and Jitendra Singh instigated the mob to attack Assam Police personnel. Our soldiers are servants of the public, not of any royal family."

In a video posted by Congress' official X handle, Gandhi can be seen talking to university students, where he said, "The Home Minister of India called the Chief Minister of Assam and said – Do not allow Rahul Gandhi to meet the university students."

"Then Himanta Sarma called the university management here and said that Rahul Gandhi cannot meet the students of Assam and North East. That's why I could not come to meet you at your university," he added.

Quoting this video, Sarma said, "Kya aadmi hai (what a man Rahul Gandhi is), the function was in Meghalaya, but he is abusing Assam." He pointed out that the university being mentioned is in Meghalaya, not in Assam.

Notably, Gandhi's 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' had a segment in Meghalaya, after which it re-entered in Assam. However, the yatra was not allowed use the main roads in Guwahati as it "resulted in a massive traffic jam".
