The screenshot records the time it was taken.  That was also true of a screenshot  of another account which Malviya tweeted. Ten accounts are listed in ANI’s article. So did the evidence of these retweets get fed to ANI by the BJP?  Or did the BJP have prior knowledge of the story ANI was going to do?  Malviya began tweeting right after the ANI story was published.
