Actor Ranvir Shorey attacks AAP for inaction against the corrupt, gets attacked in return

Ranvir Shorey, a Bollywood actor who had supported the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the past, has come under attack from “passionate” AAP supporters after he put out tweets were critical of the AAP government in Delhi.

His main point of disquiet against the Kejriwal led government was that the AAP government had failed to act against the allegedly corrupt guys as was promised by the party, even after coming to power. Shorey was also critical of Kejriwal’s way of functioning and the hefty advertising budget of the government and party.

After the spectacular debacle of AAP in Goa and underwhelming performance in Punjab, Ranvir started raising some questions:


His criticism drew sharp and angry reactions from AAP supporters, which made things worse:


Ranvir used to think that AAP supporters are at worst idealistic and gullible, but this latest experience made him change his views.

Things were always not so bitter between Shorey and AAP supporters as he was one of the earliest supporters of the party since it was founded in 26th Nov 2012. Here are a few of his tweets from that era:


His support however had withered after AAP won the Delhi elections in 2015 and ran the government for a year, which mostly saw Kejriwal blaming others:


Today, he realized the new character of AAP supporters:


After trying for a few hours, Ranvir gave up on reasoning with the AAP supporters, who as he now realizes, are a lot more than idealistic gullible fools. He has also set up a poll to ascertain which political supporters are the most annoying. AAP was leading at the time this report was published:



Shorey isn’t the only celebrity who has got disillusioned with the party. Even actor Anupam Kher had got disillusioned with the party despite supporting Kejriwal earlier. Even common volunteers of the party like the one who gave Kejriwal his blue Wagon-R and the one who designed the party’s logo have expressed unhappiness over the affairs of the party.
