AAP in social media soup

November 20 2017

A video recently went viral on the social media, which purportedly showed that at the wedding of an IAS official from the southern climes, President of India Ram Nath Kovind was subjected to some humiliation even as the Prime Minister was present there. The moment AAP leader Ashutosh laid his hands on the video, he tweeted it, with some biting comments, as did his party colleague Somnath Bharti. Later, the Rashtrapati Bhawan issued a statement that the person reportedly shown as Kovind was not him. Further enquiries revealed that this was a game of the Congress party’s dirty games team. It was realised in the end that Tamil Nadu governor Banwarilal Purohit was in attendance at the wedding with Modi, and he was passed off as president Kovind. The moment this came to light, both Ashutosh and Bharti deleted their tweets. However, the ploy of the dirty tricks department remained solid in the minds of the Twitterati.
