AAP supporters didn't reach Amethi, says Kumar Vishwas
Amethi, May 14: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas on Tuesday said that he did not receive much support from his party members for his campaign in Amethi against Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

According to a DNA report, Vishwas said, "Supporters did not reach Amethi. Maybe the place is such that it seemed far-off. There are no facilities there, no hotels, no ghats to visit like in Varanasi".

The AAP chief and candidate from Varanasi Arvind Kejriwal received high-profile support and media coverage in his campaign against BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi.

"I do not know what happened to the volunteers. I fought alone for three months," Vishwas added. He was, however, quick to add that Varanasi was very important for Kejriwal and the party threw its entire weight behind him.

Vishwas also admitted that his party shouldn't have quit Delhi. The party should have consulted voters before pulling down the government, he said. "We made some mistakes. Like the way we had taken people's opinion while forming the government, we should have taken their opinion while quitting as well. There should have been some debate," he said.
