The Aam Aadmi Party today alleged that Congress workers attacked their campaign vehicle and also roughed up some party activists in Tikaria industrial area in Gauriganj here.
According to AAP spokesperson Pankaj Shukla, some Congress workers damaged their party's campaign vehicle and beat up AAP activists near a petrol pump in Tikaria industrial area under Gauriganj police station here.
SHO (Gauriganj) Ratan Singh said that he was looking into the matter.
Reacting to the incident, the AAP candidate from Amethi, Kumar Vishwas, told PTI that Congress workers were "disappointed" with the election response and hence were now resorting to hooliganism.
"Congress has lost the election and in disappointment has come to gundagardi (hooliganism). I will go to Election Commission with my complaints," Vishwas said.
He also alleged that "police is under heavy pressure (from Congress) and not cooperating with AAP even on ground."
No Congress leader was available for comment as regards the incident.
AAP workers, including Somnath Bharti, Ilias Azmi, Shefali Mishra, briefly stopped Rahul's motorcade near a railway crossing at Kakwa Road to protest the alleged attack on AAP activists.
SHO Amethi Mohd Hamid Khan said, "Yogendra Yadav-led AAP protesters held placards reading - 'shanti se jawab denge'(We will reply peacefully)."
