"My vehicle was attacked at Jamugurihat, Sonitpur, by an unruly BJP crowd who also tore off the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra stickers from the windshield. They threw water and shouted anti-BJNY slogans. But we kept our composure, waved to the hooligans and sped away. This is undoubtedly the Assam CM @himantabiswa's doing. We are not intimidated and will soldier on," Mr Ramesh said in his social media post.

 The men also attacked the cameraman and other members of the Congress social media team, including women, the party said in another social media post.

Assam Congress spokesperson said: "The camera, badge and other apparatus of a vlogger who has been covering the Nyay Yatra were snatched. Members of the social media team of the party were also manhandled."

She said that a BJP programme was happening in the area and some of the mediapersons had got off their vehicles to get some visuals.

"They created an intimidating situation for us. They have refused to return the camera of the vlogger, claiming that it was not snatched," Congress' communications coordinator Mahima Singh told reporters.

Assam Congress, in a social media post, said, "Chief minister @himantabiswa's demonic attack on APCC president @BhupenKBorah by his paid gundas is one of the worst incidents in the political history of Assam. The attack is clear evidence of fear in the mind of the chief minister."
