New Delhi: AAP leader Kumar Vishwas today apologised for his comments on a religious event over which JD(U) MLA Shoaib Iqbal had threatened to withdraw support from the Aam Aadmi Party government.

Accusing parties of running edited clips of his old videos, Vishwas said, “Since I have joined the movement against corruption, all the parties are running edited versions of those videos as per their convenience.

“As soon as I got to know about it, I apologised for it. If anybody's religious sentiments are hurt, it was not my intention. It is an edited part of what I had said...If Shoaib (Iqbal) or anybody else was hurt, I apologise for it,” he said.

Asked about Iqbal's threat to withdraw support from AAP, Vishwas said, “As far as his support is concerned, it is up to him, it is his own prerogative.”
