The whole nation is grief-stricken after the former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee breathed his last on 16th August but there are some who are still busy in creating controversies.
August 16 is also the birth date of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and during the daytime, before Atal ji left the world, Kejriwal announced that as Atal ji was critical, he didn’t want to celebrate much on his birthday.
However, a photo of him cutting a big cake is going viral on the Internet and on the cake, number 50 is clearly visible which indicates that Arvind has turned 50.
The pic was circulated by Facebook pages – Yogi Adityanath – True Indian, I Support Namo and Modi Nama as well as on Twitter by various handles.
Online users slammed Arvind Kejriwal for showing insensitivity and celebrating birthday even after knowing that the legend Atal Ji left the world.
Here are some tweets:
In morning,Kejriwal said,"he will nt celebrate his birthday becoz of poor health of Sh.AB Vajpayee ji,"

Ankit Lal, the social media strategist of AAP, stated that this photo was clicked in the morning when Atal Ji was alive; however, it is being projected as it was taken in the evening.
सुबह की तस्वीर को शाम का बता कर घृणा फ़ैलाने वालों, जनता देख रही है। #Atalji को गए कुछ घंटे भी नहीं हुए, पूरा देश शोकमग्न है, एक दिन तो धैर्य धरो।

If you look at some of the photos clicked during the same time, in one of the photos you can see that the wall clock and a wrist watch are clearly visible, showing the time a little past 11.
Mirror doesn't lie:
When Kejriwal cut cake on BD, the clock on the wall and a wrist watch both read a little past 11 AM. Vajpayee’s demise was announced after 5 PM. Kejriwal called off further celebrations in view of the critical condition of former PM.
Thus, sanghis are idiots! pic.twitter.com/2O0IMICReT

A video was also shared by AAP official Twitter handle at 12:09 pm in which Arvind Kejriwal could be seen announcing that he would not celebrate his birthday as Atal Ji was critical.

Taking the sequence of events into consideration, we can say that Kejriwal cut the cake at about 11am and after an hour, he made an announcement of not celebrating further and then went to AIIMS for visiting Atal Ji between 1 and 2pm.
We request people to find out the truth behind every piece of news that they find on social media and then only react.
