These days, whenever there is a big political fight, Arvind Kejriwal and his minions ensure that by hook or by crook they drag the mess to the lowest level. We had earlier shown how Arvind Kejriwal and AAP lied brazenly repeatedly on various issues. When the Supremo shows the way, how can the minions stay behind?
Ankit Lal, the social media head of AAP and close associate of Kejriwal, is well-known for his deceitful tricks.
As soon as news about the elevation of Lt General Bipin Rawat as India’s next Army Chief broke, Kejriwal along with social media team of AAP jumped to use lies and innuendo to muddle up the situation, as we had exposed here.
But Kejriwal and his supporters didn’t stop with caste and communal flare, they also brought regionalism to worsen the discourse:
Keeping the front of communal mudslinging open, the social-media team of AAP started pushing new sets of vicious rumours. The social media wing of AAP innovated farcical connections between Rawat’s family and BJP, so that political attacks become easy.
Gen Bipin Rawat’s grandfather was an MP from BJP.
It’s unfortunate that he has been appointed superseding two senior generals.

Lt. General Bipin Rawat, a highly decorated officer, was born in a family with strong army background. His father L S Rawat retired from the army as a Lt. General. Sadly, Aam Aadmi Party which has often been in limelight for using army for electoral gains, didn’t opt to for a fact-check before targeting the future Army chief.
Of all the MPs who have ever won from BJP, no one looks like grandfather of Lt. General Rawat, at least on the paternal side.
A rational guy doesn’t even need to look at the data. BJP was established in 1980 and Lt. Gen Rawat is already 57 years old. His grandfather winning from BJP was sarcastically countered by the twitterati too.
Quantum Physicists are still researching how could grandfather of 57 yrs old Gen Bipin Rawat be MP from BJP (formed in 1980). pic.twitter.com/oVmGEBkpU8

His father b ~ 1925
His grandfather b ~1900
BJP formed in 1980
Not adding up, AAP.
If otherwise, what’s this ‘MP’s’ name? pic.twitter.com/K3eAQwh3Xr

It is depressing to see the kind of precedents set by AAP. After their anti-Army stand post surgical strikes, the party is toeing communal and political angle against the Army. In its bid to attack the Government and Modi, AAP has not even spared the army and is trying to create all sorts of communal, regional and even political divide amongst the ranks of the army.
AAP, a party which came into existence on the pretexts of clean politics, is not only spreading filth in politics, but misguiding its followers to believe into rumours and lies. Now the onus is on its supporters to either oppose the filth or blindly support the party under the illusion of clean politics.
