As heavy rainfall lashed the Delhi-NCR region, a picture of a family sitting in a flooded street went viral on social media. It is being claimed that the picture is from Delhi and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is not taking measures for the people affected due to heavy rainfall.
The Facebook caption read. “#दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री #अरविंद_केजरीवाल जी का दिल से धन्यवाद जिन्होंने #किराड़ी विधानसभा को #लंदन बना दिया।
यह देखिए किस प्रकार एक पूरा परिवार #लंदन की गली में बैठकर ” गरमा गरम चाय” और बिस्कुट का आनंद ले रहे है🤣🤣🤣🤣#केजरीवाल जी इससे अच्छे दिन मत दिखाना🙏🙏🙏”
