If Punjabi voters support me, I will defeat Jats, Gujjars and Biharis: No, Raghav Chadha hasn't said this

  • Share


Many users on social media have been sharing a particular image that seems to be an extract from a newspaper. This article suggests that Raghav Chadda has said that if Punjabi voters support me, I will defeat Jats, Gujjars and Biharis.

The clipping which is in Hindi was shared by many users especially on Twitter and Facebook.

A Twitter user Satyam Jha wrote

One side @raghav_chadha is abusing desi people from Bihar and other state of India and on the other side @AtishiAAP is a @AAPDelhi candidate for lok Sabha from East Delhi wherr people from Bihar and east up is more @BJP4India ( hypocrisy at it's best ) @IndiaToday @GautamGambhir

On Facebook, many users were found making this claim. You can see all such posts here.

Our Investigation

The picture is designed to look like a newspaper extract, but it is not. This can be easily figured out as there is no byline - mention of the author’s, company’s or news agency’s name and it does not have a date mentioned as well.

It also does not have a caption for the picture attached which is quite unusual. When read in detail spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors are seen. It is evident that no newspaper article will be published consisting of a lot of errors.

Raghav Chadha himself took Facebook to share the information that this particular so-called news article is ‘absolutely false’. He has also requested people to report the post if seen anywhere on social media.


No, Raghav Chadha hasn't said that if Punjabi voters support him, he will defeat Jats, Gujjars and Biharis. The viral newspaper clip is fake.

This is not the first time, a fake newspaper clip has gone viral. Earlier a fake newspaper clip was shared to claim that BJP President Amit Shah called Baniyas Thieves. You can read our fact check on this here:
