The AAP MLA tweeted ‘results of a pre-poll survey’ that ABP said it had never done.
Alka Lamba, AAP MLA from Chandni Chowk, tweeted Thursday an image of what she said was an opinion poll ahead of the bypoll in the Delhi constituency of Bawana.
The image claimed that the AAP candidate had a clear lead before the election.
She deleted the tweet later.
Here’s what the AAP MLA had tweeted.
There was no such pre-poll survey conducted by ABP that is either on its website or on the channel’s social media platforms. This was confirmed by the channel’s managing editor on Twitter.
In fact, the image Lamba tweeted seems to be a modified version of a survey conducted before the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh earlier this year.
ThePrint tried to speak to the AAP MLA for her version of events but was unable to get through to her.
