Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday found himself in another soup after he shared an article claiming that India was getting isolated internationally despite New Delhi’s efforts to do the same to Pakistan after Uri terror attack.
The article, titled “Not in India’s corner” was written by former diplomat M.K.Bhadrakumar and carried in English daily The Tribune.
Sharing the link to the article, Kejriwal on Tuesday wrote on his Twitter handle, “Excellent article. On Uri, rather than Pak, India seems to be getting isolated internationally.”

Sensing an opportunity, Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar shared Kejriwal’s tweet along with a comment that sought to rubbish India’s stand following the Uri attacks.
That whatever moment when Delhi, yes, Delhi CM, tweets an Indian article about India's isolation while India is trying to isolate Pakistan 🤐— Mehr Tarar (@MehrTarar) September 27, 2016
Kejriwal’s tweet did not go down well with Indian tweeples who responded angrily to him saying that he was indulging in politics, placing it over national interest.
Here are some of the tweets:

So you can go this low in doing politics. National interest should be all above any politics.— Mayur Zala (@zalamayurr) September 28, 2016
