The video showed Kumar Vishwas delivering a speech in front of a crowd and a voice is heard saying "Latak gaya" which apparently did not come from the AAP leader's mouth.
It is to be mentioned, Zee News quoted AAP's Kumar Vishwas saying "Latak gaya" while, giving a speech on the recent farmer's suicide. And Sonu Nigam posted a video which apparently exposed Zee News for allegedly manipulating the video.
Sonu Nigam posted the video on Twitter with the caption saying, "I am far from politics but I feel this truth should come out for the sake of my poet friend Kumar Vishwas. (sic)"
Soon, the video went viral and things went worse when Zee announced a ban on Sonu Nigam for posting the video. While, Zee Music has decided not to buy songs of Sonu Nigam, the singer received huge support on Twitter as #IstandWithSonuNigam has been trending on the social media site.
