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:
सिंधी समाज को (जटाठारू पर्व) लाल साईं जयंती,
सिंधी चेटीचंड (नव वर्ष )की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं
— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) March 17, 2017
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. Usually whenever people get some date wrong they make an error of about two to three days but Kejriwal has set a completely new precedent by making an error of a whopping 12 days.
And as is the case, whenever Kejriwal tweets people react and this case was no exception:

Along with the EVM’s Modi also hacked Kejriwal’s personal calendar. https://t.co/AYOmlE1ebY

Though one user was skeptical from the outset:
