Lucknow, Jan 12: Black flags were shown to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas as his convoy passed through Jadishpur on way to Amethi, where he is scheduled to address a rally on Sunday.

The protesters sought an apology from Vishwas for his 'communal speech' which had created a controversy a few days ago. "He (Vishwas) has belittled the Muslims. We demand an apology," said a local protester. He denied that Vishwas had tendered an apology following his remark.

Vishwas was accused of hurting religious sentiments of the Shia Muslims by allegedly making fun of Prophet Hussain in a poetry he resides at a programme in Lucknow during Muharram last year.

The AAP leader, however, said that he was not perturbed by such protests and would go ahead with the rally.

The AAP leader directly challenged the Gandhis ahead of the rally, saying his party would bring an end to the dynastic politics in Amethi which has been a stronghold of the Gandhis for a long time.

The Congress later hot out at the AAP, saying the victory in Delhi had made the party over-confident.
