Arvind Kejriwal declared PM 2019, on Wikipedia

One user on Wikipedia is vandalising articles and declaring Arvind Kejriwal as PM 2019

In the 2014 general elections, Arvind Kejriwal was supposed to be the biggest hurdle in the way of Narendra Modi becoming prime minister. When Modi chose to contest from Varanasi, Kejriwal also filed nomination from that Lok Sabha seat, with various AAP leaders declaring that Kejriwal winning the seat was a foregone conclusion.

In a similar case of high expectation, someone has gone ahead and declared that Arvind Kejriwal will be the Prime Minister. Not on some official platform, but on Wikipedia.

Today at 1:48 PM, the Wikipedia page of Arvind Kejriwal was altered, and the words PM 2019 were appended after his name at the beginning of the article. The alteration was done by one Wikipedia editor who goes by username Amayvijay.

On 19 November, this same user had edited the page and inserted the line “Also PM 2019 watch An Insignificant man movie on YouTube on kejriwal ji” in the first paragraph of the article. He had added the same line in the Wiki page of Aam Admi Party also. These edits were removed by master editors of Wikipedia, but the latest edit on the Arvind Kejriwal page remains.

Looking into the profile of the user named Amayvijay, it can be seen that the account is active on Wikipedia since 6th November, and it is specifically created to vandalise Wikipedia pages. All of the editions made by the user are random insertion or alteration of text, not any meaningful update that Wikipedia editors are expected to do.

On 6th November, the user attacked the wiki page of Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium several times, changing the name to Ekana International Cricket Stadium. On 6th November, Uttar Pradesh government had renamed the stadium to Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium. Accordingly, the wiki page was updated to reflect the new name. But the user Amayvijay was obviously not happy with this renaming, because he kept renaming the name of the stadium back to its original name, which was corrected by other editors every time he did it. In a few edits, the user also added the words “by Akhilesh Yadav” after the name of the stadium in the article, which was subsequently removed by others.

This user had also edited the page for Ahmedabad, and inserted Ahmed as the city’s other name, removing Amdavad.

After declaring Arvind Kejriwal the PM in 2019, Amayvijay proceeded to vandalise the wiki page for 2019 general elections. The page contained results of various opinion polls for the 2019 election, and the sidebar had 2014 results of BJP and Congress with photos of Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi. This is a big injustice to Arvind Kejriwal, thought Amayvijay, and inserted detail of the Delhi CM there. These were the insertions in the page: leader name: Arvind Kejriwal PM 2019, party name: Aam Aadmi party Honest, and alliance name: Most Honest Alliance.

The user had inserted the words “watch An Insignificant man movie on YouTube on kejriwal ji” on multiple pages. An Insignificant man is a documentary movie chronicling the rise of Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party.

As per latest reports, the user Amayvijay has earned a warning for his ‘disrupting editing’ in Wikipedia.
