Was Arvind Kejriwal really drunk in the viral video ?
A video of apparently drunk, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is now doing rounds on social media. Many people on Twitter and various YouTube channels have shared this video. The tweets state “Kejriwal.? Power Drunk..?”, while the videos on YouTube state “Kejriwal hua Sharabi” (Drunk Kejriwal).
The video has been edited (slower frame rate) on Tik Tok application by @rkumarmadaan (this is clearly visible on the edited videos). The original video has been slowed down and edited to show that Arvind Kejriwal is drunk and talking about the upcoming elections. While, the video was a Facebook Live done two years ago, where Kejriwal mentions the last election of Captain Amarinder Singh and Parkash Singh Badal. In the video he is seen talking about why one should not vote for Captain and Parkash Badal. He mentions that this is important as the people will not be able to force them to work, since this will be their last election. The link of the original video:
The fake video shared by twitter account @being_Humor has around 43 thousand views, 2 thousand likes and a thousand Retweets.

The UnPaid Times, though a parody account, has received many views not only for this video but for many other videos present. Despite clearly mentioning that it is a parody account, many twitter account holders blindly believe the posts shared by this account.
