The Congress march comprised roughly 50 party workers who were protesting attack on MP Rahul Gandhi’s office in Wayanad yesterday. The march suddenly turn took a violent turn with several of the demonstrators rushing toward the Deshabhimani office building shouting and agitated. The office is housed on rented property and shortly into the attack, the house owner who lived on the ground floor of the building ran out panicky with her kids after which the miscreants backed away.
