Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas, who is contesting from Amethi against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, has claimed threat to his life. The AAP leader has decided to file an FIR against Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi over the alleged threat.
Vishwas will also take the issue to the Election Commission.
In a tweet, the AAP leader has alleged that a close aide of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi threatened to kill him, and the aide was then invited by Priyanka to have discussion at her home.
