BJP leader Vijender Gupta Tweets ‘false’ photo of water logging, AAP goes to Delhi Police


The Aam Aadmi Party has approached the Delhi Police asking it to file a case against BJP leader Vijender Gupta, who is also Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, for allegedly tweeting “misleading” and “false” photo showing waterlogged roads in the national capital.

In its complaint to the Cyber Cell, AAP’s Delhi unit convenor Dilip Pandey claimed the BJP leader tweeted a photo yesterday that showed “false pictures” of waterlogged roads in the national capital.

He said the photos posted by Mr Gupta date back to year 2010 and 2013.

“Pro-people policies of the AAP government in Delhi have left the BJP with no issues to raise. Frustrated, BJP leaders are now resorting to falsehood to defame the AAP government in Delhi and mislead the Delhites,” he said, adding posting “false” photos was clear violation of the Information Act.

Hitting back, Mr Gupta said he never claimed the picture were of the current date and he only wanted to use the pictures as “symbol”.

“I wanted to convey the message that the PWD, which is responsible to clean the drain has not done its job. However, the money has gone from the exchequer to clean the drains, but Delhi still remained flooded.

“My message through the picture was, had Arvind Kejriwal focussed on Delhi, then people of the national capital would not had to face such difficulties,” Mr Gupta said.
