Hitjob on Gen V K Singh: He did not touch Amit Shah’s feet

Last week, amidst huge fan fare, Amit Shah was re-elected for his second term as BJP President. The entire event was shot and uploaded on Youtube. And after a few days of the event, a small clipping from the event emerged where it was shown as if General V K Singh had bent and touched the feet of Amit Shah, as if to take his blessings. The video is a short clip which is very unclear and claims that the man bowing is Gen V K Singh.

This was seen as a very dishonourable thing to do by Gen V K Singh because not only was he from the armed forces, he was also older than Amit Shah, hence it was entirely inappropriate on his part to bow to Amit Shah.

This video was spread on social media by many “neutral” troll handles. One of the prominent handles to peddle this video was former NDTV security expert Ajai Shukla, who is nowadays seen towing the Congress line on TV debates:

The General though had already clarified on Twitter that the person on the video was not him



So what is the truth? Was it Gen V K Singh in the video. Nope. Firstly look at Gen V K Singh’s attire for the event. From the video of the event one can find out that Gen V K Singh had indeed come for the occasion but dressed differently. Also compare this with the clothes of the person in the video:


General V K Singh Amit ShahEven from the grainy grab from the video, one can see the muffler which General V K Singh pointed out to. Later, high quality photos also surfaced at it was amply clear the person is doubt was not Gen V K Singh:

And a simple google search for “Vijay Pal Tomar” does throw up the person’s real picture. Mr Tomar is also a BJP leader and hence was present at the event.

Even after all such clarifications and proofs that the video was fake, the video was in circulation and the major twitter users who had spread this untruth refused to back down. In fact, the same Ajai Shukla went one step ahead and claimed Gen V K Singh was lying. Of course, how could he accept such a good piece of propaganda was fake?
