"Delhi ! Here is your pride ..The Signature Bridge . Ready to welcome you tomorrow for Inauguration Ceremony.. 4PM onwards.. Sunday, 4th Nov."- @msisodia
Facts Check Analysis: The Signature Bridge is ready in Delhi after a real long wait. However the ruling Aam Aadmi Party created a controversy when it hastily tweeted pictures claiming to be from the signature bridge.
However one of the pictures posted on the social media is not of the Signature Bridge in Delhi but is rather of the Erasmus Bridge of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
So as the Aam Admi Party was happy taking the credits for the iconic Signature Bridge, the Bharatiya Janta Party pointed out a blunder of the party, which resulted in the trolling of the party.
Tejinder Pal Singh Bagga also shared a video of the illumination of the bridge in Netherlands. He wrote “Had Keriwal actually worked for the development he would not have to steal the picture of Erasmus Bridge”
