New Delhi: Throwing open challenge to Congress vice president, Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas said on Monday that he would fight next Lok Sabha polls from wherever Rahul Gandhi contests from.
Addressing the media today he confirmed that he had applied to his party for a ticket from Amethi. “I will fight from wherever Rahul Gandhi contests,” he added.
He also said that the country would get a good message if BJP`s PM candidate for 2014 polls Narenda Modi decided to contest from Raebareli.
Vishwas maintained that the AAP was against dynastic politics and had enumerated the same in their manifesto.
Amethi and Raebareli is considered to be the stronghold of the Gandhi family. Rahul Gandhi is the Lok Sabha MP from Amethi.
The AAP stunned everyone with their spectacular performance in their first outing and won 28 seats in Delhi. The BJP won 31 and SAD bagged 01 seats in the 70 member House.
The BJP told the LG that they could not prove majority on the floor of the House, when invited to form the government. The numbers needed was 36.
The Congress, on the other hand, offered outside support to the AAP to form the government in Delhi. The AAP went to the people and sought their opinion on whether they should go with the Congress.
After the survey, they announced that they would form the government in Delhi as the people wanted them to. AAP convener, Arvind Kejriwal became the seventh and the youngest Chief minister of Delhi on December 28. He took oath at Ramlila Maidan, the venue of the movement against corruption in 2011.
