Vishwas ‘attacked’ in Amethi
In yet another run-in with Congress workers in Rahul Gandhi bastion Amethi, Aam Aadmi Party candidate Kumar Vishwas and his supporters were attacked on Friday evening in Jagdhishpur block by a group of 25 people, who were allegedly led by a local activist of the national party.
Vishwas was allegedly hit on his shoulder by a stick and two of his supporters sustained injuries. While Amethi SP Heera Lal claimed the AAP workers have yet to file a complaint, the partymen gathered at Kamrauli police station seeking action against the attackers and accusing the police of not filing an FIR.
“Around 7.10 pm, we had gathered at Sindurwa village in Jagdishpur. As soon as I and Kumar got on the makeshift dais to make a speech, Congress workers reached there and started solganeering for Rahul Gandhi,” alleged Rauf Saifi, a close aide of Vishwas.
“But when we instructed our workers to take their pictures and record videos, Congress workers attacked us with sticks, bricks and sharp-edged weapons.”
