Fact Check: Unrelated images of tractors with metal wheels falsely linked to the ongoing farmers' protest

  • Share


Old-unrelated-images of tractors with uniques tubeless wheels are being falsely linked to the ongoing farmers' protest.

Amid the ongoing farmers' protest, a set of images of tractors with tubeless metal wheels is being widely shared on social media claiming that ‘wheels without tyre tubes’ are being made for tractors in response to the iron nails put up by the security forces to barricade the Delhi borders.

A Twitter user shared the image with the caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "Wheels without tyre tubes are being prepared for tractors to answer the government's decision to put spikes on the roads, Sir, this is self-reliant India.”

A collage of the same images is also being shared on Facebook by several users with the same claim. 

The truth behind the claim 

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. All the images in the collage are old and unrelated to the farmers’ protest.

With help of reverse image search, we found his image on a Tumblr page by user ‘rollerman1’ uploaded back in 2016. The caption shared with the image reads, "Modern tractor on steel wheels, pretty much the norm in my area with the old order menonites."

Using a reverse image search, we found this image used as a thumbnail on a YouTube video that was uploaded more than 7 years ago.  The video was uploaded on a channel named ‘Bontrager Entertainment’ with the description, “Brief history of farming and reason for using steel wheels by the Horse & Buggy Mennonites of New York.”

In conclusion, old-unrelated-images of tractors with uniques tubeless wheels are being falsely linked to the ongoing farmers' protest.
