Arvind Kejriwal and his party, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), were once the favourite of the media. But like every other love story this, too, had to come to an end.
Just a few days ago, India Today and Aaj Tak Managing Editor and anchor Rahul Kanwal silenced Kejriwal when the latter trolled the former by calling him a Modi spokesperson.
Just to refresh your memory, this was the exchange:
Modi ji’s spokesperson gets angry … https://t.co/0FTdyhnoeN

This is what happens when trolls get elected Chief Ministers! https://t.co/tPxm184Esv

Now, journalist and India Today columnist Shekhar Gupta tweeted this hard-hitting fact about the failing health condition in Delhi under the AAP government.
1st malaria deaths in 5 yrs, 1st Chikungunya death now. While Delhi govt safely out conquering Punjab, Goa & Gujarat https://t.co/xJ9hIHp0Hq

And for reasons bets known to him, Arvind Kejriwal responded
with this tweet:
राजनीति करनी है, खुल कर सामने आओ। पहले कांग्रिस की दलाली करते थे, अब मोदी की? ऐसे लोगों ने पत्रकारिता को गंदा किया https://t.co/N5Bj2Xf5hB

Yes, Kejriwal called Shekhar Gupta a broker. Of course, Kejriwal’s choice of words did not go down well with the Twitterati.

The prevailing health situation in Delhi is extremely worrisome. Not just Chikungunya and Malaria, Delhi residents are also battling Dengue.
