Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia cannot deal with Rahul Kanwal backing railway surge pricing

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 8 September 2016, 16:52 IST

In the times we live in, trolling is almost a way of life. With the weapon of social media at our fingertips, having the restraint to allow another individual to voice their opinion is now perhaps a superpower. Most of us aren't born with it, and Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Admi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal and his trusted aide, Manish Sisodia are no different.

One of the few people on Twitter to back Suresh Prabhu's latest surge charge policy for premier trains, Rahul Kanwal, the Managing Editor of India Today, found himself engaged in a Twitter war with the two politicians. It began as an exchange between Kanwal and Sisodia, before Kejriwal jumped in. Mudslinging followed.

Presenting the classic case of He Said - He Said and The Other He Also Said:

Kanwal On Surge Charge

Sisodia Dropping His Jaw at Kanwal's Logic

Kejriwal jumps in

The Exact Moment Feelings Were Hurt

Somebody Let The Floodgates Open

After about seven tweets, Kanwal calmed down enough to stop explaining the concept of free speech. He also tired of explaining the difference between appreciating a move made by a politician and endorsement of a party.

Strange how expressing an opinion can get lost in the crossfire between party politics. Strange how journalists can no longer opine without being questioned about their affiliations. Strange how every new policy is met with derision without question, without fail.

Strange how it is this very TRP-shooting bickering that we all thriving on.
