An image of Delhi CM cutting a cake to celebrate his birthday is falsely being shared widely on social media.

New Delhi: A picture of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal celebrating his 50th birthday Thursday is going viral on social media.

Twitter users are criticising Kejriwal for his insensitivity towards former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee after the latter passed away Thursday. An unverified account on Twitter posted:

The tweet in Hindi said “Kejriwal, the world’s most disgusting man.” The post was retweeted by over 2,600 accounts.

However, the Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief did cancel his birthday celebrations owing to the critical health of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The image of Kejriwal cutting the cake was clicked before he cancelled the plan. The wall clock in the picture shows the cake was cut at 11:05 am, hours before the former PM succumbed to his prolonged illness. The official handle of AAP shared it on their Facebook page at around the same time.

At around 11:47 am, Nagender Sharma, media adviser to Delhi chief minister, tweeted that Kejriwal requested volunteers to cancel any birthday celebrations owing to the deteriorating health of the former PM and Bharatiya Janata Party stalwart.

An All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) press statement said Vajpayee died at 5:05 pm Thursday.

The series of events clearly show that Twitter users jumped the gun as far as Delhi chief minister’s Kejriwal birthday celebrations were concerned.

  1. If he celebrate birthday at 11.05 am, why he announced at 12 am not to celebrate his birthday? Does he think that he is smart and he can fool people?.. 2nd thing, he gave reason to cancel celebration because of vajpayee sickness and flood in Kerala. If vajpayee was alive while he celebrate birthday, but there was flood in Kerala while he was celebrated. So kejru should stop to fool people. People are tired with his drama.

  2. यही नहीं समझ आ रहा कि जन्मदिन मना लिया तो कैंसिल कैसे हुआ और यदि कैंसिल हुआ तो मनाया कैसे? जासूस पत्रकार को कैसे पता चला कि घड़ी में सुबह के 11 बजे हैं या शाम के? अब दुनिया को कबतक टोपी पहनाते रहोगे? शायद जी बी रोड़ के कोठे के दलालों में भी मर्यादा हो जो आज के कथित पत्रकारों में रत्तीभर भी नहीं है।

  3. This BJP IT cell which thrives on cheap canards should be banned first.Someone should find a way to teach people not to react till verifying,

  4. Atalji’s health was critical from the night of 15.08.2018. CM Kejriwal celebrates his birthday by cutting the cake at 11.05 am of 16.8.2018 inspite of knowing the critical health of Shri Atalji and thereafter tweeting he has cancelled his birthday celebration due to critical health of Shri Atalji. How foolish this is.

  5. In this country rumours are spread with the speed of light. This is a part of defaming Kejriwal project by paid IT team as people here are so foolish they don’t think once before sharing stupid fabricated posts.

  6. Atal ji was extremely critical ,well known fact on 15 august,,even then he celebrated next day 11 am ,,with such huge cake,,many ppl around,,,the print do u ppl know what sensitivity is,,same question to AAP
