LUCKNOW, January 12, 2014
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas on Sunday said that holding a rally in Amethi is a challenge to “dynasty politics and corruption.”
Amethi is the parliamentary constituency of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.
“Amethi has to decide now. I am an aam aadmi and he (Rahul Gandhi) is a prince. If Amethi wants, it can get rid of dynasty politics. Winning and losing is not the point but what is important is, we are challenging dynasty politics and corruption,” Mr. Vishwas told the media on his way to Amethi.
To a query on protest at his press conference Saturday, he said: “What is the protest all about? Is it because that Amethi’s dynasty politics should not be challenged or is it about the poems that I have read which had hurt the sentiments of certain community, for which I have already apologised.”
Mr. Vishwas’ press conference here was disrupted on Saturday when a man threw an egg at him while raising slogans against the party. Saif Zafri was soon overpowered by Aam Aadmi Party activists and handed over to police.
While on his way to Amethi, black flags were waved at Mr. Vishwas.
