FACT CHECK: Unrelated video falsely shared as 'BJP MLA thrashed by farmers in Haryana'

  • Share


A video showing stone-pelting during the recent Panchayat Election in Rajasthan is being shared with a false claim that it shows farmers thrashing a BJP MLA Uday Singh from Haryana.

A video has surfaced on social media showing some people pelting stones at a vehicle with a claim the video is of the farmers' protest in Haryana when farmers thrashed BJP MLA Uday Singh from Haryana, to show their resentment against the newly passed farm laws. 

The video was shared on a Twitter page named Punjab Kisan Union with a caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "Haryana...trends have started emerging against farm bills. The first person thrashed in this context is BJP MLA Uday Singh, who was warmly welcomed by the farmers".

Several other Facebook users are sharing the same video with the same claim. 

The truth behind the claim

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. The viral video is from Rajasthan during the recent  Panchayat Samiti elections

With the help of reverse image search using the keyframes of the video, we found a report by Dainik Bhaskar published a month ago which carried one of the keyframes. As per the article, the viral video shows a clash between two groups on accusations of fake voting during the Sarnau Panchayat Samiti elections has gone viral. The incident happened in Sediya village of Rajasthan.

We also found an article by Zee News published on November 28, 2020, according to which the fight happened between Congress candidate supporters and an independent candidate over electoral fraud. The Congress candidate fighting the election was the mother of former Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) member Mohan Kumar who was contesting from Congress, and the other was the Congress' Suresh Siyag's mother, contesting as an independent candidate in Sarnau Panchayat Samiti elections.

Moreover, we did not find any BJP MLA named Uday Singh from Haryana when we searched the name Uday Singh on, we found many Uday Singh but none were from Haryana.

In conclusion, a video showing stone-pelting during the recent Panchayat Election in Rajasthan is being shared with a false claim that it shows farmers thrashing a BJP MLA Uday Singh from Haryana.
