Arvind Kejriwal’s ‘is it true’ tweets are mostly untrue, and that’s not ‘shocking’

Arvind Kejriwal has been spreading lies and making wild allegations by using a question like format ‘is it true’ or an equivalent of the same for a long time. Today he asked if the BJP was destroying retail business to pave way for FDI in retail.

Here is a list of instances on which his ‘is it true’ tweets were plain lies.

FD interest rates drastically reduced after demonetisation

- Advertisement - - Article resumes -

Reports of reduction of FD rates to 4.25% after demonetisation was shared by his party man Satyender Jain. Kejriwal claimed that middle class would be affected adversely because of this move.

However, the truth was, only deposits of 1 crore or above were to be affected by this change in interest rates. Which middle class person will have 1 crore rupees ?

Amit Shah owns 13000 crores declared by a businessman

When a Gujarat businessman Mahesh Shah declared 13,000 crore assets, Hardik Patel claimed that all the money belonged to Amit Shah. Kejriwal picked on this baseless allegation and asked ‘Is this true?’

The truth is, Amit Shah’s assets are worth 19 crore as per his declaration in 2017. Media went hullabaloo over this figure by comparing his previous declared assets.

ANI has been boycotting AAP events on Modi’s orders 

Dipak Bajpai, an AAP member had tweeted that ANI had been boycotting AAP events based on Modi’s orders. Kejriwal spread this allegation by saying, ‘if this is true, it is shocking’

However the lie was busted by a report carried in the news portal , ‘Janta Ka Reporter’. The report carried a denial by Smita Prakash, editor of ANI.

Amit Shah and Owaisi had a secret deal during Bihar polls

AAP mouthpiece Janta Ka Reporter shared this article claiming Amit Shah and Owaisi had a deal.

Kejriwal spread this story in his typical style :

However, Owaisi categorically denied this allegation when Rajdeep asked this question. He jokingly said that the deal happened Rajdeep’s house over a lunch.

Nita Ambani runs Modi’s Twitter account?

One has to be supremely clueless to say that Nita Ambani runs Modi’s Twitter account. But Kejriwal shared it with a comment ‘absolutely shocking if it is true’. This is an absurd remark which deserves nothing but a smirk.

After these lies, and others not covered in this article, one can perhaps only say that it seems Arvind Kejriwal has absolutely no credibility left, and that indeed would be shocking if untrue.
