A video of a purported drunk policeman was shared by BJP Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal with the claim the video shows a Punjab cop. Jindal made a snide remark targeting the AAP which recently won the state assembly elections.

There are multiple other users who have tweeted the video, taunting CM-designate Bhagwant Mann. It is noteworthy that the BJP and its supporters often target the AAP for its liquor policy in Delhi.

While we were unable to find details about the video, it is unrelated to AAP’s victory in Punjab and was shot five years before it came to power in the state.
