Is AAP social media team stealing pictures of girls off the Internet to spread agenda?

After Congress, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) seems to have taken to stealing pictures of unsuspecting strangers on the Internet and creating fake accounts on Twitter to spread their agenda. Earlier, we had reported how Congress social media team seems to be using bots and ‘fake girls’ to push Rahul Gandhi’s image on Twitter.

Popular Twitter user Ankur Singh, who had earlier exposed Congress’ social media strategy on ‘fake girls’, tweeted on AAP using images of girls stolen from the Internet, seemingly without permission, to create fake accounts to push AAP’s agenda. In January, a Twitter handle Mayra Gupta was busy trending hashtags in favour of Aam Aadmi Party. The account regularly indulges in defending AAP and Kejriwal.

Except, the image the account was using was of one Aayushi Malik, a model.

The need to make it appear like it is a real account, the account even changes profile picture, regularly. Currently, the picture the account has a June 2017 picture taken from Malik’s Instagram account.

Recently, too, it seems AAP has resorted to creating fake accounts to distribute certificates of nationalism.

One Anisha Gurnani’s LinkedIn profile picture is ‘stolen’ and passed off as Aaditi Kaushik on Twitter who spends her time hailing Kejriwal.

This raises serious questions whether AAP social media team is misusing pictures of girls? Whether DCW chief Swati Mahiwal swing into action?
