Received this Breaking News from social media from a friend. Don’t know from where it originated

Has anyone Heard or Seen Congress Spokesperson Mani Shankar Aiyer, Live after the Balakhot Air Strike !
The Latest Buzz in the Social Media is that on the Fateful Night Of Balakhot Air Strike he was in the Jaish – E – Mohammed camp in Balakot discussing Strategy with the Terrorists , when the Indian Air Force Striked and he was killed .
Very Peculiar Situation for the Congress. Poor Chaps can’t Own it nor Deny it. Neither can hold a Condelence Meeting for one of the most Trusted Lieutenant Of the GANDHI FAMILY .

If Mani Shankar is really Dead then India has Lost a True Pseudo -Nationalist / Anti – Nationalist. Good for INDIA
If Mani Shankar is dead he really got what he deserved and the Old Saying Of “ YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW “ holds True
Otherwise at least by this time he might have appeared in TV.
Even now during election time he is not seen canvassing nor in any TV debates, no statements after Pulwama, Balakot Air strike..

Is this true is the question ? CONgress men have to come out on Mani Shankar Iyer…..

Fact Check:

Messages doing rounds on social media claim that senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar was Killed in Balakot Airstrike in February 2019. Allegedly, the incident hidden from public took place while he was in the Jaish-e-Mohammed camp discussing strategy with the Terrorists. No, the claims about the death of Mani Shankar Aiyar are not true.

Mani Shankar Aiyar NOT Killed, Alive.

Some social media users mentioned absence of Mani Shankar Aiyar in news lately, even during Lok Sabha elections in India. They went on to suggest he was involved in a terrorist camp on the fateful night of Balakot Airstrike and was killed thereby. The former Foreign Minister and leader of Indian National Congress Party has been part of some controversies with his words and remarks. In 2014 he mocked PM candidate Narendra Modi saying a chai wala (tea seller) can never become the Prime Minister of India. Again in 2017, he called Modi ‘neech aadmi,’ a “low level person bereft of any culture”. After Rahul Gandhi condemned the tone and language of Mani Shankar Aiyar, he apologized to Modi.

Despite the social media buzz, there’s no grain of truth in the theories surrounding ‘disappearance’ of Mani Shankar Aiyar. The senior Congress leader is in fact very much alive and busy campaigning for the Party in South India. Aiyar clarified the same to ThePrint ( on 27th April 2019 and refuted his death rumors on social media. He also added his Party did not give him any specific responsibility to election campaign.
