Kejriwal wishes Sindhi community 12 days prior to the actual date of the festival

For AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal Twitter is like his second home, where he spends a sizeable part of his life. Taking a break from peddling the propaganda that EVM’s are a huge scam due to which AAP lost the polls, he decided to indulge in some positive tweeting. On Friday, 17th March he put out a tweet wishing the Sindhi community a Happy Cheti Chand:

Cheti Chand is a very important festival in the Sindhi community which is celebrated as a New Year’s Day just like Gudi Padwa is celebrated by the Marathi community. So it was indeed a touching gesture that Kejriwal had taken pains to remember the Sindhi festival and convey his greetings. Though there’s just a slight wrinkle: Cheti Chand is scheduled to be celebrated on 29th March of this year and not being celebrated on 17th March as wished by Kejriwal.
