Fact Check

BOOM found the original video that was published on AAP’s YouTube page on May 22, 2017.

Original video

The original video is from a meeting of AAP members where Ashutosh was one of the speakers.

The viral clip, which has two jump cuts, is a doctored version of the same video. Below we share portions of the original video which have been spliced and added at a different position to make it sound like the former AAP leader was speaking jibberish while taking a dig at the party.

The portion which appears earlier in the original video is cut and added later in the doctored clip

In the above video the portion where Ashutosh says ‘Ask our 15 MPs who have toured Pakistan and come. And there are some people who have unleashed a dog on their wife‘, has been clipped.

At a later point, Ashutosh says, “Today, Aam Aadmi Party is standing at a juncture where we can proudly say that within India if there’s any one party which stands in the way of corruption, it is Aam Aadmi Party.”

It’s this portion of the video that the viral clip begins with. The other portions are added accordingly to construct a nonsensical sentence.
