‘Doctored’ video of CM Arvind Kejriwal: AAP, BJP in war of words | Delhi News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Lashing out at Bharatiya Janata Party, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday said that the party’s functionaries had lost the trust of people and that is why they had released a ‘doctored’ video of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal in which he purportedly supported the farm laws.
Sisodia said BJP tweeted the video on Saturday as the Indian public had shown a lot of faith in Kejriwal. He added that the video was created by selectively editing a long interview of the chief minister. He even claimed that fake sound bytes had been placed in some places. The videos were played at a press conference held at Aam Aadmi Party’s head office on Sunday.
The deputy chief minister said he was initially angered at BJP’s tactics as they had got a doctored interview aired on television, but later felt pity for the party. “Despite leading a government at the Centre and in many states and having Prime Minister Narendra Modi as their leader, they have lost people’s trust, so they had to use Arvind Kejriwal’s fake video to save the farm laws,” he added.
Alleging that BJP had sent its goons at the Ghazipur border, who attacked the farmers and their leader Rakesh Tikait, and also to Singhu border, Sisodia claimed that they tried to portray it as an attack by locals. However, people saw through this and understood BJP’s tactics. He further alleged that BJP had conducted a sponsored protest at Red Fort and disrespected the national flag.
“BJP knows that Kejriwal is the only leader with credibility, so they have used his doctored interview to create a false impression among people. Aam Aadmi Party will initiate legal action against BJP,” added Sisodia.
Sisodia claimed that despite being in power, BJP was feeling helpless as people had lost trust in the party leadership. He also alleged that though the PM had enumerated the benefits of farm laws on several occasions, the farmers had understood that they were being cheated.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor condemned Sisodia for levelling baseless allegations on BJP of hatching the January 26 violence conspiracy.
“It is sad that, like his party colleagues, Sisodia has levelled allegations on BJP and raised questions on the credibility of the central government without any basis even as farmer leaders, including Rakesh Tikait, have expressed willingness to talk to the Prime Minister. It is regrettable that AAP members are trying to gain political mileage through the farmers’ agitation instead of helping resolve the crisis,” added Kapoor.
