Amethi: Facing the public outcry on his purported comments against a religious event, Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas was on Sunday shown black flags by a group of people, while he was heading to address a rally.
It is reported that stones and eggs were also thrown at two buses ferrying party supporters to the rally venue, in Gandhi Chowk area of the city.
Window panes of the buses got damaged due to the stone pelting and police resorted to mild force to control the mob after which the buses left for the rally venue.
When asked Vishwas about the protests, he claimed them as “sponsored” and voiced that he would defeat Congress leader Rahul Gandhi with a “huge margin” in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
The poet-turned politician was shown black flags by the protesters, who also raised slogans against him, while he was passing through Jagdishpur area along with his supporters.
They also burnt effigy of the AAP leader and said that a person, who does not respect religious sentiments, would not be accepted in Amethi.
On Saturday, AAP’s press conference in Lucknow was briefly disrupted by a youth, who threw an egg at Vishwas and raised slogans against him. Earlier Vishwas tendered his apology about the comment on the religious event.
