After cricketer-turned-politician and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chairman Imarn Khan registered victory in the general elections of Pakistan, a news came up on the social media that Delhi Chief Arvind Kejriwal visited Islamabad to congratulate him.
A facebook user Indrajeet Mandal shared a photo of Arvind Kejriwal with Imran and wrote “the Prime Minister of reached Islamabad to congratulate. Rascal and traitor ‘Khujliwal”.
This post went viral after a facebook page ‘I love Yog’ shared it as it was shared more than 5,000 times.

A twitter user Takad Tau Deviwal shared the same pic and said “Kejriwal is first so called Neta who congratulate Imran Khan to be PM of #Pakistan”.

Actually this particular photo was clicked when Khan visited India. In March 2016, Khan met Kejriwal at his residence in Delhi. It was Khan who presented a bouquet to the CM, revealed a fact-checker website SMHoaxSlayer.

About the meeting of duo, English daily Telegraph noted “Four months after meeting Narendra Modi, Imran Khan called on the Prime Minister’s bête noire, Arvind Kejriwal. Imran, who heads Pakistan’s fast-growing Tehreek-e-Insaaf party, met the Delhi chief minister for around an hour at his 6 Flag Staff Road residence in the Civil Lines area on Sunday evening. To no one’s surprise, the Imran-Kejriwal meeting attracted plenty of attention from the national capital’s media corps. Imran, in fact, had sought an appointment via this Reporter. Around 11.00 pm on Saturday, Kejriwal’s OSD, Nagender Sharma, confirmed the appointment at Imran’s preferred time of 7.00 pm or so.”

The photo with fake claims and absurd comments was shared widely.
A twitteratti wrote “#Pakistan's next Prime Minister with Imran Khan. Our internal survey says AAP(Aam Aadmi of Pakistan) is going to clean sweep the Pakistan Election. Please vote for us today”.

Another user wrote “Imran Khan is very impressed with Arvind that he will take inspiration from Kejriwal as he wins the election”.
