BJP's Anti-AAP Ad Showing Garlanded Cartoon Of Anna Hazare Angers Arvind Kejriwal

Hindustan Times

An advertisement for the Bharatiya Janata Party shows a garlanded cartoon of Anna Hazare, leading to Aam Aadmi Party chief and AAP’s chief ministerial candidate for Delhi, Arvind Kjeriwal, to ask BJP if they’ve “killed off” the anti-corruption activist.

Traditionally, a person’s photo is garlanded after his death as a mark of respect.

Kejriwal cited the newspaper advertisement in a series of tweets and said Nathuram Godse killed Gandhiji on January 30, 1948 while the BJP has killed Anna in its ad today. He demanded that BJP apologise for the gaffe.

Kejriwal, who promised not to take support from Congress, is seen in a "marriage" with the party.
