Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday visited his MP office in Kerala's Wayanad, which was recently vandalised by the activists of SFI (Students' Federation of India), over the buffer zone issue.
Gandhi, who is on a three-day visit to his constituency, reached the office along with other senior leaders of the party and took stock of the damage.
The former Congress chief said the act as "irresponsible" and added that "violence never resolves problems". "It is the office of the people of Wayanad. It's unfortunate what happened. Violence never resolves problems. People who did this acted in an irresponsible way. I don't have any hostility towards them," he said.
Last week, a protest march of the SFI against Rahul Gandhi turned violent after a group of left activists allegedly barged into his office in Wayanad and vandalised it, prompting Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to strongly condemn the incident and warn of stern action against the culprits.
Strongly condemning "the act of violence" by SFI at its top leader's office at Kalpetta in Gandhi's LS constituency Wayanad, the Congress staged a statewide protest, which turned violent in some regions.
The incident occurred when the SFI activists held a march to Gandhi's office alleging his inaction in the issue of buffer zones around forests.
