New Delhi: Unhappy over demonetisation move, AAP leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has left no stone unturned to target PM Narendra Modi. However, it seems he has left caution to the wind in his eagerness to prove that demonetisation has hit the common man.
One such act of Arvind Kejriwal has now become an internet sensation and social media users are slamming the Delhi CM for the irresponsible act.
Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday (3:11 PM - 20 Nov 2016) retweeted a pic - which was actually tweeted by one Abhishek Mishra. The picture claimed that a man committed suicide inside a bank in Madhya Pradesh's Satna district as he was unable to get cash for the past 3-4 days. (see pic)
Soon after Abhishek Mishra tweeted this false and misleading picture, Arvind Kejriwal retweeted it and targeted PM Narendra Modi over demonetisation move. (see pic)
Mishra has now deactivated or deleted his Twitter account but Kejriwal's 'Modi ji reham kijiye' tweet remains on his Twitter page. (see pic and tweet)
मोदी जी, ये देखिए। अब तो इस देश के लोगों पे रहम कीजिए। आख़िर क्या दुश्मनी है आपकी जनता से। ग़रीब की इतनी हाय मत लीजिए। https://t.co/26FPOwYTwo

Also, Times of India has a story on the suicide.
The man who committed suicide was actually "A youth, who allegedly barged into a nationalised bank in Satna district for robbery, hanged himself inside after realising that police surrounded him and any attempt to escape would prove futile. The incident took place at Allahabad Bank's Bela village branch at 3 am on Saturday (Nov 20)," according to Times of India.
