New Delhi : Social media users slammed Delhi Chief Minister heavily soon after a picture of him cutting cake post sad demise of former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee started trending on the social media.

Arvind Kejriwal turned 50 on August 16, the same day when Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee took his last breath at 05:05 pm. Hours after the news, a picture of Arvind Kejriwal started trending on social media with claims that he is celebrating the news that shook whole nation.

The cake cutting picture came despite the fact that Mr Kejriwal had already announced in afternoon that in the wake of Vajpayee's poor health and Kerala floods he will not celebrate his birthday. It shocked almost everyone.

The truth of the picture

On digging social media we found out that the picture was actually clicked in the morning at Aam Aadmi Party office. However, some people shared it in the evening and made absurd claims that Kejriwal is playing with the sentiments of India by cutting cake after the news of the former PM's demise.

In a video shared by Ankit Lal on Facebook, it is clear that the celebrations took place before the news of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee's demise. Infact, Kejriwal can be heard saying that he does not want to celebrate his birthday as the former PM is battling for life.

Also in the wall clock, it can be seen that the time is around 11 and it is very unlikely that all party members had thronged at his residence in the night.

Final verdict: The picture is wrongly presented on social media to demolish the image of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.
