A picture of a man lying in an unconscious state at the office of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Gujarat has gone viral on the Internet. In the snap, the man can be seen lying on the floor with his legs resting on a sofa. In the background, we can spot the AAP party banner featuring the image of party supremo Arvind Kejriwal. The AAP office is located in Surat’s Gopipura area. The picture was shared by BJP leader Vrajesh Unadkat, municipal councilor of ward number 21, Surat, on Facebook. Along with the picture, he wrote a text in Gujarat that loosely translated to, “Hey, wake up we have to change Gujarat”.

After the image went viral, AAP decided to look into the matter. Post investigation, it came out that the picture is of a BJP worker, reported Aaj Tak.

The investigation team took the CCTV footage in account and found that two BJP workers entered the office premises and clicked that picture, the report added.

In a follow-up tweet, the Delhi chief minister said that he had a word with Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani and has asked him to look into the matter.

“Urged him (Vijay Rupani) to file FIR, arrest the culprits, ensure strong action against culprits and ensure protection of AAP leaders and workers,” the minister said.
