With state assembly elections round the corner for Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party is in campaign mode. From trolling and abusing those who disagree with them online the political party which has single-handedly reduced the bar of public decorum has now sought an FIR against a Facebook page for ‘spreading fake news’ because the supreme leader it seems can’t take a joke.
AAP national secretary on behalf of Arvind Kejriwal has sought action against a Facebook page ‘Paltu Aadmi Party’ (PAAP). Paltu means u-turn in colloquial Hindi and PAAP would mean ‘sin’.
OpIndia decided to check out the page which AAP claims is ‘damaging their reputation by posting false and fabricated content’.
In the above video one can see that separate clips are joined to make it appear like Arvind Kejriwal is auditioning for a singing reality show ‘Indian Idol’ and the judges are shocked at the poor singing of the contestant (in this case, Kejriwal). It is followed by other clips of Kejriwal singing and judges giving critical comments on the ‘contestant’.
Similarly, another post is on how a court case has been filed in Bihar for his anti-Bihar comment with respect to free treatment to patients in Delhi hospital.
Last month, Arvind Kejriwal had said that patients from Bihar spend Rs 500 to come to Delhi and take free treatment because of which Delhi residents are being deprived of medicine facilities. A social activist named Nitish Kumar has now filed a petition alleging he was hurt by Kejriwal’s remarks. Kumar, in his petition, said the Delhi CM has behaved irresponsibly and tried to vitiate the peace, unity, sovereignty and harmony of the country and the state.
The page further shows various videos juxtaposing Kejriwal’s one statement against his own contradictory statement on same issue.
The page also takes a dig on the former supporters, members and leaders of AAP who have been shown the door by Arvind Kejriwal.
Many of these have been vocal critics of AAP and Arvind Kejriwal and were shunted after they spoke up against him.
Essentially, Arvind Kejriwal wants an FIR against a Facebook page which posts memes, jokes and disagrees with his politics. Delhi is slated to go to elections early next year where Arvind Kejriwal is seeking reelection as the chief minister of national capital.
