To fact-check the viral claim, the DFRAC team first searched specific keywords on Google but they could not find any news published by any media organization regarding Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation as Delhi CM in support of wrestlers.
After this, our team investigated the official Twitter handle of Aam Aadmi Party @AamAadmiParty and the official Twitter handle of Arvind Kejriwal @ArvindKejriwal. We did not find any announcement or declaration regarding this context as well.
DFRAC confirms that the viral claim is false since Arvind Kejriwal has not announced his resignation from the post of CM of Delhi in support of wrestlers.
