Correction: Here is what Manish Sisodia said

It (AAP) has always been an anti-corruption movement for me, Manish said.

Manish Sisodia AAP has always been an anti-corruption movement for me, said Sisodia.

The Indian Express twitter handle (@IndianExpress) erroneously put out a wrong tweet during the Idea Exchange with Delhi minister and AAP leader Manish Sisodia.

The correct tweet should have been “Don’t know whether it (AAP) was an anti-Congress movement or not… but it has always been an anti-corruption movement for me.” Asked for his reaction to Kiran Bedi’s statement that she left the movement ‘because it had changed from an anti-Congress movement which was taking help from BJP to an anti-Cong, anti-BJP movement’, Sisodia said: “Pata nahin ke ye anti-Cong movement tha…… Main to jab se ye movement main tha, mere liye to ye anti-corruption movement tha. (Don’t know whether it was an anti-Congress movement or not but it has always been an anti-corruption movement for me.) If anyone was involved in corruption, it was anti that.

Be it A, B, whatever, whatever. Since the beginning, mere liye aur kam se kam main bahut saare logon ke liye kah sakta hoon, jaise ki Arvind (Kejriwal), ki hum sab ke liye toh anti-corruption movement tha. (For me, and I can speak for many others like Arvind, it was an anti-corruption movement). Whosoever was involved in corruption, it was anti them. Unko agar issme kisi ko anti-Congress dikhta hai, ya BJP ka faayda dikhta hai, kisi ko bhi kissi ka fayda dikhta hai (Some may see it as anti-Congress or helpful to BJP. Anyone can view this as helpful to someone or the other).” The event was being covered live and the error was inadvertent and unintentional. We deeply regret the error.

                      Dude don't go overboard. Please read before you judge. He clarified here that the movement and the party is 'anti-corruption'.

                        We all know that AAP is not Anti-Congress. It never was! and your tweet cleared everything... B-Team of Congress... (You and Manish Sisodia may take many U-Turns).If u vote for AAP, means u r indirectly helping Congress through d backdoor, Modi only option- Kiran Bedi.. this is what Kiran Bedi said. most of the IAC members are against AAP.. only Naxalite/Maoist/Rioters supporters are in AAP.With one Aim : Stop Modi/BJP.But we are with Narendra Modi.. and our Vote is for India.

                          Voting BJP and Modi as PM will be like voting for Hindu Raksha Sena, Hindu Seva Dal and Bhagat Kranti Sena. Me as an Indian would vote for a safe and honest govt. like AAP which is under RTI and declares its fund sources on website. BJP still doesn't do this, plus Modiji's past is horrifying. And BJP brings corrupt durappa back and talks about Anti-corruption ? What is this Vikaas ? Kejriwal is the reason BJP didn't buy MLA's in Delhi, he's already changed Delhi. In our area the hafta vasooli which was on since 7 years is stopped. Thanks to AAP.

                              Indian Express should upload the video of the interview. I don't believe them.

                                Let them upload the unedited version of the interview. We will see it for ourselves. Verbal apologies don't help

                                  If we vote for BJP or Congress, we would be supporting corruption. Both are corrupt to the core, Ek taraf to Pappu aur dusri taraf Fenku dono barbaadi hi laayenge desh ke liye...The truth is BJP is scared to death about loosing badly in General Elections when they think about AAP.
