"Doesn't a candidate have the right to challenge Rahul Gandhi to a debate on Amethi, on national policies, on Syria, Pakistan? I invite him to a debate. Let him come to the NDTV studio or a square in Amethi. He can come with his supporters but not get Janardan Dwivedi, Ajay Maken and Co. with him," Mr Vishwas said on NDTV's The Buck Stops Here.
Amethi is the parliamentary constituency of Rahul Gandhi.

The Hindi professor and parodist popular for his stage shows, has tempted more than one controversy in politics. On Monday, Mallika Sarabhai, a few days old in the AAP, said she had seen him on youtube videos airing views that were anti-minority and distinctly misogynistic.
She also slammed him for appearing to praise Narendra Modi in one of these videos. Speaking to NDTV, Mr Vishwas admitted to having been a fan of the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate "until he learnt about corruption in Mr Modi's Gujarat."
