Has Arvind Kejriwal promised to shave his moustache off ?

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is a self-proclaimed anarchist. He has done various stunts in the past, right from sleeping on roads to abusing the PM. Now there have been some news reports that he has promised a new stunt.

A screenshot of a tweet by Aaj Tak has gone viral on social media. The tweet says that Arvind Kejriwal has declared that he will jail Sheila within two months or else he will shave his moustache off:

Arvind Kejriwal has been under fire for not acting on former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit inspite of claiming in the run up to the Delhi elections that he had voluminous documents against her. Considering this, Kejriwal’s promise to shave his moustache off seems far fetched. What added to the mystery further was that soon after Aaj Tak tweeted this, the tweet was deleted.

So did he really say this? Seems not. If one sees this video footage from the Delhi assembly, it is clear that Aaj Tak has grossly misreported the statement:

In the video Kejriwal says that Vijender Gupta, the BJP leader, is a man of his word. He further says that on behalf of Vijender, he i.e. Arvind Kejriwal assures the house that if Sheila Dikshit doesn’t go to jail within two months, then Vijender will shave his moustache off.

This is basically the Delhi CM trolling the BJP MLA, and nowhere does Kejriwal say he will shave his own moustache. Yet Aaj Tak does a complete hash of the reporting, and to add to the problem, social media has already started spreading the incorrect screenshot of Aaj Tak’s tweet.
