The noisy battle of words over VD Savarkar is a distraction to cover up news that the Government does not like - news about the #Notebandi hearing in Supreme Court, #MorbiBridgeCollapse, the popularity of #BharatJodoYatra, the rising popularity for @RahulGandhi.
Indians are fast realising that they have been fooled since 2014, duped by false promises, taken in by massive Govt-organised scams, legislation that enslaves rather then liberates them.
#WhatsApp forwards don't fill empty bellies and stories of past #Vishwaguru glories do not make up for joblessness or loss of earnings. The people are waking up the fact that they have been divided and told to hate each other. #BharatJodoYatra threatens this cosy conspiracy

Extremely important thread

1. Today I will tell you how the BJP IT cell has tried to influence a very important aspect of the #MorbiBridgeCollapse incident by spreading fake information.

They shared 3 days old to 4 years old videos to create a narrative that people on the bridge were responsible themselves for their deaths on Morbi Bridge. ImageImageImage

Their lies were exposed when CCTV footage of the incident came out. There was clearly no vegetation under the bridge at the time of the collapse.

But, they still kept spreading lies by using different angle and location photos of the river and surroundings. Image

1. Today I will tell you how the AAP IT cell has tried to influence a very important aspect of the #MorbiBridgeCollapse incident by spreading fake information.

They have declared a very important video as old by showing a few old similar videos.
2. I have shared this video to highlight that a person is trying to damage a cable by kicking it very hard more than 12 times.

I have slowed this video if anyone wants to count it.

Isn't this criminal?
3. When this video went viral in the mainstream media very quickly AAP IT cells got activated.

First, they picked up a similar 4-year-old video which has Tik Tok logo

Later came with a similar 10-month-old video

Thread on #Morbi

Morbi is in national news because of #MorbiBridgeCollapse claiming 140 plus lives pointing to gaping holes in infrastructure projects and its maintenance as well as administrative negligence.

Let's delve into Morbi's political past and why turmoil engulfed it.
Morbi traditionally is ceramic capital of India with over 1000 ceramic tile factories producing 90% of India's ceramic production.
This ceramic industry is cracking under rising costs with 800 units facing uncertain future due to constant rise in prices of
gas, coal and raw materials.

Morbi's ceramic factories halted production for one month beginning August 2022 in an unprecedented action. Major reasons for this move was due to significant decrease in domestic demand as affordable housing construction fell below sustainability.

#MorbiBridgeCollapse disaster that claimed hundreds of lives is a serious issue of privatised ‘vikas’ model where public infrastructure projects are handed to cronies instead of government taking them up.

Massive gaping hole in PPP model that’s been peddled by none other than
Modi himself (public private partnership) washing hands & responsibility off infrastructure that people pay taxes for.

Disasters end up in appointment of inquiries which never reach any conclusion or even report and quickly forgotten in fast changing politics now.
Zero accountability and punitive action resulting in relentless siphoning off of public coffers lining up pockets of both private sector and ruling political party.

There will be hue and cry for literally 3-4 days and it will be back to usual business leaving families of dead

Contract Papers b/w #Morbi Municipality & Oreva (Ajanta Group) PROVES-

#MorbiBridgeCollapse was a clear case of CORRUPTION

No tendering done, repair done in 5 months instead of 12 months, Collector objected still BJP proceeded & caused 141 deaths

The contract was given for 15 YEARS WITHOUT ANY TENDER!

How can BJP - who rules the #Morbi Municipality, give a contract of repairing a bridge to a watch/bulb making company without a tender?

Kickbacks? Corruption? ImageImage
The repair work was to be completed in 8 to 12 months

But the #Morbi bridge was made operational in JUST 5 MONTHS!

Why the rush to repair and start the bridge which has been closed for 1 year?

To woo voters before #GujaratElections? Did the BJP's TOP Leadership approve this? Image
