On January 23, Congress workers in the presence of Rahul Gandhi and other leaders broke police barricades, which were put up after Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma threatened to file an FIR if the Yatra attempted to enter the main city road.



The party workers clashed with police, who used lathicharge to control the situation but failed to protect the barricades. Several police personnel and party workers were injured in the clash.
