A video of Arvind Kejriwal saying "Corruption should prevail" went viral on Twitter. In an investigation, it was found that the video is clipped from a longer video to conveniently create a false narrative.
A 13-seconds video clip of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's speech was posted on Facebook by the page India272+. In the video, Kejriwal can be heard saying "None of the economists writes that corruption can ruin the country. Corruption should prevail."
The post says "Corruption of AAP should continue", suggesting the implications of Kejriwal's statement.
The Facebook page India272+ which shared the video clip has 2.8 million subscribers.
By doing an image reverse search of the keyframes of this video, the original video was found on the Twitter handle of the Aam Aadmi Party from May 8, 2022.
Kejriwal can be seen talking about his freebies and how economists write about them. At around 45 seconds, he gives the statement which has been singled out to create the misleading clip. From this video, it is clear that Kejriwal is criticising economists for not writing on corruption, and does not imply that the corruption of AAP should go on.
The complete 34 minutes long speech can be found on Aam Aadmi Party's official YouTube Channel.
In conclusion, the viral video clip claiming that Kejriwal is saying that AAP Corruption should continue is false. The clip was conveniently edited out from a 34-minute speech of the CM.
