Alleging Rahul Gandhi knew nothing about Amethi, Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas on Sunday said he would opt out of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections if the Congress leader was able to name all the 17 blocks in the constituency.

Addressing AAP’s first rally in industrial city Kanpur, he said there were also talks of Priyanka Gandhi being fielded by the Congress against him in the Parliamentary polls.

Vishwas alleged Rahul knew nothing about the region and dared him to name all the blocks in the constituency without any help.

If the Congress leader was able to do so, he would not contest the Lok Sabha elections, the AAP leader said.

Taking a dig at the Gandhi scion, he said the Congress vice-president was in a foreign country when a massive anti-graft campaign, spearheaded by Anna Hazare, was underway in New Delhi.

Vishwas further alleged Gandhi was also not seen when a huge protest erupted on the streets in the wake of December 16 gangrape.

He alleged widows in Rahul’s constituency were deprived of pension.

He said the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre was conspiring with the Akhilesh Yadav dispensation to put him behind bars.

    Vishwas ji please stop doing any nonsense activity and first concentrate on you party.Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
