Candid Arvind Kejriwal Video Revived With Misleading Context

An old video of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been revived on social media with misleading context.

An old candid video clip of Arvind Kejriwal, which also features in a documentary about the Aam Aadmi Party, has been revived on Facebook claiming to be secretly filmed footage of the Delhi chief minister.

The video, which has Kejriwal along with former political ally Kumar Vishwas and others, shows them in happier times sharing a few laughs.

The clip shows a relaxed Kejriwal watching a video being edited. Later, we see Kumar Vishwas, who appears to be recording a voice over, speaking to Kejriwal in Hindi. The duo are having a conversation on issues related to the campaign ahead of the Delhi polls.

The video is accompanied by a message in Hindi which translates to, “Managed to find this video with great difficulty. Please watch, all.”

While the message implies that the footage was meant to be a secret, the video is nothing but a clip from the 2017-socio-political documentary ‘An Insignificant Man’, which traces the journey of the Aam Aadmi Party from a movement to taking the reigns of Delhi in the 2015 Delhi legislative assembly election.
