Spread the truth:

Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal retweeted a tweet by Amit Mishra (verified twitter handle) with a video showing a BJP leader being trashed by public on a street.

Original tweet from a verified handle, retweeted approx 500 times

Tweet text –

“मोदी सरकार को चार साल पूरे हो गए हैं लेकिन जनता को इन चार साल में जो मिला उसका  जनता स्थानीय BJP नेताओं को दे रही है। मोहल्ले में जब जनता के बीच BJP के नेता पहुंचे तो उसके बाद क्या हुआ, इस वीडियो में देखिए.”

Translated –

“Modi government has completed 4 years but public is replying to local BJP leaders against what they received in these four years. Watch this video what happened after local BJP leader visited the area.”

Truth –

The false points in the tweet are –

1. Claim – इन चार साल  – These four years
False – This video is approx 8 month old, Oct 2017, not on completion of 4 years.

2. Claim – जनता का जवाब – Public replying
False – The attackers were from Gorkhaland Janmukti Morcha, not public

3. Claim – स्थानीय BJP नेताओं  – This has been happening to all/Many local BJP ministers
False – This was just once such event that too before completion of 4 years, no such incident happened after it.

Here is the video reported by Times Now

Times of India reported –

“KOLKATA: BJP‘s West Bengal unit chief Dilip Ghosh was allegedly heckled on Thursday by the supporters of expelled Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) leader Binay Tamang, who had warned the leaders of the saffron party to leave Darjeeling without disturbing peace and stability.
The incident took place during Ghosh’s three-day visit to the hills following unrest over the demand of a separate state.

Tamang’s supporters staged a protest demonstration against Ghosh when he reached Darjeeling. Ghosh, however, refuted the allegations that he had come to the hills to foment trouble. The Kharagpur MLA called Tamang a “traitor”.

Ghosh was welcomed by ‘Go back’ slogans and black flags by the Tamang supporters. His aides were allegedly physically attacked. Dilip himself took shelter in the Chawk Bazaar police station. Later the party cancelled its three-day programme.

Ghosh blamed the ruling TMC for the incident.”
