Was Priyanka Gandhi really laughing at press meet after Pulwama attack?

If you have to find a way to defame politicians, you can go with Twitter, the popular social networking site around the globe. A slow-motion video of Indian Congress Party secretary, Priyanka Gandhi is going viral in social media. In that video, she has been seen laughing in a press conference, at Lucknow in UP, to condemn the terrorist attack on CRPF jawans at Pulwama, a Twitter user named Ankur Singh posted: "Priyanka Gandhi was laughing at the press conference. Such vultures," from a small bite of the press conference arranged by her.
Later the video went viral among netizens and here comes the real truth. Initially, she came under scanner for not being serious in the press conference arranged in the backdrop of the terrorist attack on CRPF Jawans. The 11-sec video, where in Priyanka can be seen saying 'bahut bahut dhanywad' (thank you very much), is a short bit from a 4-minute long press conference.
As it became a national issue in a small amount of time, the national media reports stated that this video was intentionally cropped and edited in slow-motion to project Priyanka in a negative way. The surprising thing here is the guy who posted the original video is a tech expert and was being followed by PM Narendra Modi. This story came to an end after Twitter blocked his account recently.
