A video from December 2016 is now being shared to show a BSP supporters rally in Bihar amid Bihar Assembly elections.
Amid the Bihar Assembly Polls, a video of a bike rally has surfaced on social media platforms claiming that the video is from a recent rally in support of BSP and that BSP is getting great support in Bihar elections.
A Facebook user named Raj Bahadur shared the video with a caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "This is not just a rally, this is a fair of BSP supporters. BSP is getting great support in Bihar elections. BSP Zindabad."
A number of other users are sharing the video with the same claim on Facebook.
In our investigation, we found that the viral video is an old video. The video dates back to 2016 and is from Jhansi.
On analyzing the video, we noticed in the entire video not even one person is wearing a mask on the face, which is not possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the help of a relevant keyword search on Google, we found a longer and clearer version of the video uploaded on YouTube on December 30, 2016, with the title "Memorable bike rally Jhansi Sitaram Kushwaha b.s.p candidate- shooted Lalit Kushwaha."
Below is the comparison of a frame of the viral video and the YouTube video. In both the frames, a man in the red check shirt and a man in a white sweatshirt with blue stripes can be spotted.
Hence, an old video from December 2016 is now being shared to show a BSP supporters rally in Bihar amid Bihar Assembly elections.
