Whoever wants to lose can contest from Rahul Gandhi`s constituency: Congress
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: A day after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas confirmed to contest 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Rahul Gandhi`s parliamentray constituency, Congress MP Sandeep Dikshit on Monday said whoever wants to lose can contest from Amethi.
Vishwas had also challenged Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)`s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to contest from Amethi.
Vishwas took a swipe at Narendra Modi and said: "I will be going to Amethi because the people of that area want to challenge the concept of dynastic politics. The people of Amethi want me to contest from that area, which is why I am going there. "
Besides Modi, he also challenged BJP senior leaders Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari to contest election from Amethi. He was also quoted saying that BJP has many `Shehzadas` (The word which is mostly used by Modi while targeting Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi).
Vishwas`s name against Rahul Gandhi was announced some time back by Manish Sisodia, a close aide of AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal.
While Vishwas has been very critical of the Congress and its leaders in the past, it is now to be seen how he takes on the Congress after the latter`s outside support to a AAP government in Delhi.
