AAP leader and poet Kumar Vishwas on Wednesday released a short video explaining why his comments on Bhindranwale had been taken out of context as his intention was never to hurt anybody’s sentiments.
This was after an old video clip of Vishwas surfaced on social media platform.
In this clip, the senior AAP leader is seen taking part in a debate of ABP news channel, where he blames Congress party for creating Prabhakaran and Bhindranwale, who then went on to cause troubles for them in the end.
Akali Dal, which is facing a stiff challenge from the Aam Aadmi Party in the next assembly elections, wasted no time in raising this issue by accusing Vishwas of being anti-Sikh.
Vishwas, in his short video message, explains his comments are being taken out of context for political gains reminding audience that his political adversaries had ‘resorted to same tricks’ during the Lok Sabha elections last year.
AAP had won four Lok Sabha seats in Punjab has raised its stakes for the next assembly elections, scheduled in 2017, through its high-profile ‘Punjab Jodo’ campaign.
