AAP caught making a mistake - or lying - in new Youtube video

When they depict the relative sizes of the three parties, hey, presto, the AAP is depicted the largest, the BJP the second largest and the Congress just a little smaller than the BJP.

AAP caught making a mistake - or lying - in new Youtube video

The results of the Delhi Assembly elections were in more than two weeks ago. In case you have forgotten the exact number, here’s a refresher: BJP 32, AAP 28 and Congress 8 seats.

To most of us, that would suggest that the BJP, in the 70 member assembly, was close to a majority, just three seats short. The AAP was 7 seats short, and the Congress was, clearly, a poor third.

To most of us, the BJP was clearly the largest single party. The operative word is ‘clearly’.

Not to the spinmeisters at the AAP, though. Earlier today, the AAP put up videos in 7 languages explaining to the world at large why they had decided to stake a claim to form the government in Delhi. While doing so, they believed that they needed to explain what a minority government was.

When they depict the relative sizes of the three parties, hey, presto, the AAP is depicted the largest, the BJP the second largest and the Congress just a little smaller than the BJP.

That’s totally out of sync with the reality.

Was this an honest, innocent mistake by overzealous volunteers at the AAP office, or was this a demonstration of the spin that the AAP is now proving that they are capable of?

If this video is not amended immediately, I’ll tend to believe that it’s the latter – and that would be a shame.
