Written by Sahban

After Arvind Kejriwal promised 1000 rupees to Punjab women every month, a billboard of Arvind Kejriwal thanking people of Delhi in 2015 is digitally altered to read “अगर केंद्र सरकार हमें फंड दे तो हिमाचल की माताओ-बहनों को मिलेगा 1000 रुपये प्रतिमाह”, which roughly translates to, “If the central government gives us the fund, Mothers and sisters of Himachal will get 1000 rupees per month”

BJP spokesperson Nighat Abbass shared the image with a caption  which reads “सच्ची बात” which translates to “true words”. The tweet has about 10k likes at the time of writing this article.
