AAP depicts itself as the biggest party in Delhi in all seven videos uploaded by it on Youtube explaining why they are forming government with Congress.
The Aam Aadmi Party believes in the power of the social media and the party has used it to its own advantage. Just a day ago, AAP uploaded seven videos on Youtube explaining why the party leadership decided to form a minority government in Delhi. But while doing so, they spun a blatant lie in their video.
Using diagrams to depict the size of the three parties in assembly elections was perhaps a bad idea.
In the video, AAP depicts itself as the largest party via the diagram, BJP is depicted smaller than AAP and Congress the smallest in the video. If we remember the assembly election results, BJP won 32 seats, AAP 28 and Congress 8.
This gives a clear mandate to the BJP which, in the 70 member assembly, was short to majority by just three seats. But it seems AAP has forgotten the exact number and the mandate that Delhi people gave in its enthusiasm to form the government.
It may be an innocent mistake by overzealous volunteers at the AAP office, or it may bea blatant lie being shoved down the popular mindset unnoticed. If the former is correct, AAP should nonetheless remove all the seven videos and uploaded amended ones.
In the case they are onto political conniving, well, the Delhi janata just got cheated.
