Sisodia said that his party will take legal action against BJP for allegedly sharing a doctored video of Kejriwal.
During a press conference, Sisodia said that BJP has used the doctored interview of Kejriwal to create a false impression among the people. "The BJP knows that Kejriwal is the only leader with credibility and hence they have used his doctored interview to create a false impression among the people", Sisodia said. The Delhi Deputy CM claimed that since the BJP has "failed in all its machinations" against the farmers, they plotted a new scheme riding on Kejriwal's popularity.
