BJP office at Mandhi village in Mehsana district of Gujarat was set on fire during a clash between Congress and BJP workers on Saturday, police said.

The trouble started when BJP activists allegedly threw stones at the vehicle of Congress candidate Naresh Rawal, contesting the assembly elections from Vijapur constituency, they said.

Angry Congress workers allegedly ransacked and set on fire the party office, they said, adding CRPF was deployed in the area where the situation was "tense but under control".

Senior Police officials have rushed to the spot and were keeping a strict vigil in Vijapur in view of Chief Minister Narendra Modi's Gaurav Yatra in the district.
