An emotional Ashutosh, who sobbed and shed copious tears during a live debate on Hindi news channel Aaj Tak, kept Twitter abuzz on Friday.
Ashutosh broke down as he tried to deflect allegations of insensitivity levelled against his party after the death of a farmer at an AAP rally at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on Wednesday, but quite a few users on the social media website were critical of him.
As he pleaded with folded hands to stop the 'politicisation' of the sensitive issue and asked media to 'stop this sort of journalism', netizens reacted quickly and -- guess what??? -- made #AshuCries a top trend on Twitter.
Here are top 10 tweets posted by netizens on Twitter:
