Political career

Vishwas has known Arvind Kejriwal since 2005 and joined the India Against Corruption movement led by Anna Hazare Thereafter, as the movement faded and morphed into what is today known as the AAP, led by Kejriwal, he was asked to become a member of its national executive

He contested the 2014 Lok Sabha election as an AAP candidate from Amethi, but lost to then incumbent Rahul Gandhi, securing only 25,000 votes

A sting operation was carried out by a tabloid media portal called “Media Sarkar” ahead of the 2013 Delhi Assembly elections that claimed that some AAP members, including Vishwas and Shazia Ilmi, had raised illegal cash donations The AAP accused the portal of slandering the leaders of the party Mediasarkarcom and AAP filed cross complaints against each other The police promised action after a thorough investigation

As elections approached, a doctored video clip from a Kavi sammelan went viral in which he was shown making alleged derogatory remarks about Imam Hussain and Hindu deities and nurses from Kerala As a result, various cases were registered against him Vishwas responded that the clippings were doctored and later apologised for his remarks, saying it was not his intention to hurt anyone’s sentiments or feelings

In 2016, Vishwas was accused by a campaign volunteer of molestation and making “sexually coloured” remarks The courts ordered a FIR to be registered because of the complaint but an investigation by Delhi Police found no significant evidence to substantiate it

In July 2017, Vishwas was accused of copyright infringement by Amitabh Bachchan in relation to a posting on YouTube of a poem by his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan The video was taken down and a compensation of ₹32 was paid This was around the same time that he was embroiled in a dispute within the AAP, which he had threatened to quit

On 23 March 2019, Vishwas was served with a legal notice by Amritsar based advocate, NPS Hira, for allegedly cracking jokes on the Sikh community in a demeaning manner in a programme organized at NIT ground Faridabad on 15 March 2019 Hira also warned Vishwas of criminal complaint if he fails to visit Sri Akal Takht Sahib and apologize

On 16 February 2022 just before 2022 Punjab Legislative Elections, Vishwas claimed that the AAP Supremo Kejriwal once said him that even if he loses the election, he will become the first prime minister of an independent Khalistan by taking the help of separatists Kejriwal termed these claims as politically motivated and a “big joke” as had he been a terrorist why hadn’t he been probed since so many years in electoral politics Delhi High Court called a petition related to this matter “frivolous” Aap MLAs offered “laddoos” to Vishwas in the wake of their Punjab victory
