The Internet is a bizarre place and its creations are equally bizarre. The latest rage that’s gone viral on social media is an outlandish conspiracy theory which states that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been ‘planted’ by Bhartiya Janata Party president Amit Shah to make ‘stupid comments’ in order to make Prime Minister Narendra Modi sound intelligent. And guess the reason behind the strategy? It’s 2019 elections. Outlandish, isn’t it?
Shared by Twitter user @Being_Humor who has over 84,000 followers on the micro-blogging, the series of tweets are being massively shared on social media; retweeted by renowned people like film-maker Vivek Agnihotri amid hundreds of others.
Here’s what it says.
– A conspiracy theory says that @ArvindKejriwal has been planted by Amit Shah. AK is eating congress’ seat and
– he’s been asked to make stupid statements that will look intelligent only to pseudo liberals while janta realise that only modi makes sense
-this will ensure modi govt after 2019. That’s the reason AK removed Yogendra Yadav when he started making sense. It was Amit Shah’s order.
-If you have observed, @ArvindKejriwal promoted Modi as PM in his rallies, and after Lok Sabha results he suddenly started behaving insanely.
-he’ll go all sane just before 2019 Lok Sabha election. He has been asked to oppose #DeMonetisation only to make modi look the most honest
-If you remember – he was clapping when baba Ramdev talked about banning notes in one of his rallies. So why he’s suddenly opposing it?
-Not just that he was also asked to ask for proofs of surgical strike that was later supported by many congress people. He just fooled them.
In case you still didn’t get that this is not a conspiracy theory but brilliant work of an imaginative mind. Read this.
It’s the last tweet of this conspiracy theory and all I want you to understand is “never trust a sharp brain”.
Hope you liked the theory.
