Congress faces a tough U.P battle on Wednesday
May 06, 2014 11:21 AM
Fifteen Lok Sabha constituencies in Uttar Pradesh go to the polls on Wednesday in a contest hugely vital to the Congress, which won seven of these in 2009 but is finding it difficult to retain them. The most prominent of the battlegrounds is Amethi, a Gandhi family bastion where Congress leader Rahul Gandhi now faces two major foes: Kumar Vishwas of the AAP and Smriti Irani of the BJP. The apparent anti-incumbency for the Congress has been compounded by an aggressive Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is determined to unseat not only Gandhi in Amethi but crush all others in Uttar Pradesh.

How did Kumar Vishwas enter politics



The anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare saw Dr. Kumar Vishwas as one of the many proponents of the movement. He was also arrested on 16 August 2011 for supporting the movement.

Here's how the Aam Aadmi Party came into being. Sometime during the agitation, Arvind Kejriwal, one of the eminent supporters of the movement, had a difference of opinion with Anna Hazare, where Hazare wanted the Jan Lokpal movement to be politically neutral, while on the other hand Kejriwal was of the opinion that since no progress was attained through talks with different political parties, it was necessary to directly get involved in politics. India Against Corruption, the organisation guiding the movement, conducted a survey on this issue using social networking sites, the result of which indicated support for politicization. Dr. Kumar Vishwas was one of many such renowned people who supported this move of Arvind Kejriwal.

A party was launched in Delhi on 26 November 2012 under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal, and was named the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), where "Aam Aadmi" means "the common man". Dr. Vishwas became a member of the Aam Aadmi Party. The party contested elections for the first time on 4 December 2013 for the Delhi Legislative Assembly.

Kumar Vishwas takes on Rahul Gandhi from Amethi

All eyes will be on the Amethi seat in the 2014 election as the Aam Aadmi Party’s Kumar Vishwas takes on the future of the Congress party, Rahul Gandhi. Political anlysts remain pessimistic about Vishwas, given the iron grip that the Congress has on Amethi. However, the AAP, known for pulling major upsets before, is banking on another one.

Vishwas has been highlighting the rampant corruption in the Congress party. He also asserts that Rahul Gandhi is unaware of India’s problems. Should he succeed in trouncing Gandhi, it will be the single biggest blow to the Congress party in the last few decades.
