Did Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal keep his promise of cleaning the Yamuna river in 2022? Read- Fact check
A collage of two videos is getting viral on social media sites regarding the Delhi Chief Minister.
Arvind Kejriwal In 2015 talked about cleaning the Yamuna river in the upcoming 5 years and in 2022 he denied the fact of cleaning the Yamuna river.
A video of 50 minute interview of CM Arvind Kejriwal with India today is getting viral. Arvind Kejriwal said- “ Don’t give me a vote in the next election until I clean up the Yamuna river until 2025
To analyze the originality of the video the team of DFRAC did some specific keyword searches on google about Arvind Kejriwal’s interview regarding promises of cleaning the Yamuna river. The team found an interview of Arvind Kejriwal with India today on the official Youtube channel of the Aam Aadmi Party. The headline- Live Arvind Kejriwal must watch an interview with India Today on GOA elections I Amit Palekar.
In 42 minutes and 40 seconds, it can be heard by Arvind Kejriwal- “ I have spoken ten times in Delhi if I do not clean the Yamuna till 2025 Don’t vote for me next time.”
After that Executive editor of India today@PreetiChaudhary mentioned Arvind Kejriwal claiming a similar statement in 2015,
@ArvindKejriwal denied the statement saying – “I did not say it in the reference of Yamuna river”.
On further searching about Arvind Kejriwal’s old interview regarding the Yamuna river cleaning promise we found a 7-year- old video of Arvind Kejriwal Manifesto of 2015 on the official Youtube channel of Aam Aadmi Party with the headline- “Aam Aadmi Party Releases its Delhi Manifesto”. In 27 minutes and 25 seconds, it can be heard by Arvind Kejriwal-“ Yamuna will be cleaned, Yamuna is a sacred river for us, Peak ponds will be built on both sides of Yamuna, etc.”
Meanwhile, a Youtube channel named Political Kida uploaded a collage of 2 videos with the headline- “Arvind Kejriwal’s lie on the Yamuna cleaning promise I 2015vs 2022.
In the given collage it can be seen that in 2015 Kejriwal talks about cleaning the Yamuna river in the coming 5 years.
And in another one, he denied the fact of cleaning the Yamuna river in 2015 in an interview of 2022
It is clear from the verification of DFRAC that in the press conference of 2015 Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal talked about cleaning the Yamuna river in the upcoming 5 years but in the press conference of 2022 he denied the fact of cleaning the Yamuna river which he promises in 2015.
