AAP leader to contest against Rahul in Amethi, dares Modi to do the same

AAP leader Kumar Vishwas today said he would be taking on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi in Amethi in Lok Sabha elections and dared BJPs Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to run from the same constituency and "see who wins" the contest.

"I want to tell Narendra Modi that he should stop speaking about Rahul Gandhi for 50 minutes in his one-hour speeches. If he really wants to end Gandhi's stint from Amethi, then let him contest from Amethi. Let Rahul Gandhi, me and Modi contest from Amethi and let people see who wins," he told reporters.

He said if Rahul Gandhi changes his constituency, he will follow him wherever he goes.
"I have got information that Rahul Gandhi may contest from some other constituency, I have decided that I will also contest from the very seat from where Rahul Gandhi will fight the upcoming elections.

"I have applied for a Lok Sabha ticket. I am also an aspirant, the two-member sub-committee of AAP will decide on the number of seats the party will contest in the elections and the names of the candidates," he said.

Launching a scathing attack on the Congress scion, Vishwas said "Rahul Gandhi cannot hide the 10 years of Congress misrule by rolling up his sleeves and tearing a few pieces of papers. He has not asked a single question in Lok Sabha, he was never in the picture whenever an important issue like Lokpal or women security was in the limelight."

Accusing Modi of dynastic politics, he said "Narendra Modi had fielded three shehzada (princes) in Delhi, two of them lost while one could hardly win. AAP believes that two persons should not get tickets from the same family."
