With leaders like Ashutosh, who needs Opposition

Ashutosh, ex-journalist in Reliance owned CNN-IBN, and now a prominent leader of AAP is someone who is very active on Social Media. He has over 7000 tweets (after reducing the tweets he has deleted) and over 2.5lac followers. But are these followers his fans for his tweets? or people who just find his tweets “enjoyable” on a different level altogether. Here are some of his tweets, which might have put AAP on the back foot:

1. For Ashutosh, “Freedom of Press” is more important than the lives of policemen and success of Anti-Terror Operations

Today morning, Ashutosh tweeted the above 2 tweets. They are in response to Arun Jaitley’s statement that Government may consider framing norms for Media reports on anti-terror operations. It may be remembered that this is primarily in response to the 26/11 Terror attacks, where Media was giving virtual running commentary, which could have eventually helped the Terrorists in knowing the location of Indian anti-terror forces. To any normal person, national security is paramount, but for Ashutosh, media should be allowed to report whatever they want, even if people may lose lives thanks to it.

2. “Thoda Communal hona padega”

On 17th January, just 1 day after ex AAP leader, Shazia Ilmi, joined BJP, Ashutosh tweeted the above tweet. It was soon deleted for unknown reasons, but by then alert social media users had saved screenshots. While the target of the above “sly” tweet is not known, it was definitely politically incorrect. Was he referring to Shazia Ilmi who had just joined BJP, and implying that she wasn’t true to her faith? We will never know the answer to this question

3. Wide Angle

This tweet was from when Ashutosh hadn’t joined AAP. Considering that he was working in the media, one would imagine he understood camera angles better. This wasn’t the best angle for the picture is all we can say.

4. Merry Christmas?

No comments needed, Ashutosh got a good reply from this Twitter user.

5. On 17th January 2015, Ashutosh flaunted his “Sources” in BJP/RSS. Just after 2 days, when he was basking under the information given by his sources, BJP gave him a hard blow. Even his sources in BJP/RSS are giving him a good lesson.
