Truth vs Reality: Kejriwal cuts cake after Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee's demise?
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.
भारी संख्या में कार्यकर्ता और समर्थक मुख्यमंत्री आवास पहुँचे थे, लेकिन @ArvindKejriwal ने अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी जी की खराब तबियत और केरल में बाढ़ की वजह से अपना जन्मदिन नहीं मनाने का फैसला लिया है।— AAP (@AamAadmiParty) August 16, 2018

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.
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.
