Kisne Feka Several BJP leaders, including BJP MP Manoj Tiwari, Pravesh Saheb Singh, and Dr. Nishikant Dubey, shared a photo of a heap of garbage below a hoarding of Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinic, Niti Vihar, Kirari, Delhi, on social media. It’s being claimed that the Mohalla clinic built by Arvind Kejriwal in Niti Vihar does not exist in reality.
Foolproof: The viral claim is false. BJP MP Parvesh Singh’s tweet was called fake by Twitter user Shaleen. An image of the same area is shown in a video he shared. In the video, a man identified as Ravinder Bharadwaj, Municipal councillor of Aman Vihar ward 41, shows that the hoarding was placed on the roadside just a few meters away from the Mohalla clinic. Bharadwaj mentioned in the video that the clinic is about 50 meters away from the signboard.
Parvesh Singh was also called out for sharing fake news by the Aam Aadmi Party’s official Twitter account. A jibe was also taken at BJP, as they described the viral picture as the party’s failure. It is to be noted that MCD Delhi has been under BJP control for the last 15 years. After the controversy, the hoarding was removed.
