A video and a couple of photos are being shared widely on social media with a claim that they are recent visuals of RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary meeting BSP’s Mayawati. The visuals are being shared in the context of the present Assembly Elections (2022) in Uttar Pradesh. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.

Claim: Recent visuals of RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary meeting BSP’s Mayawati.

Fact: The visuals are not related to the current Assembly Elections (2022) in Uttar Pradesh. They were taken in 2019 when RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary met BSP’s Mayawati in the context of the Lok Sabha Elections (2019). The Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), and the Samajwadi Party (SP) had an alliance in 2019. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When we searched for the posted video on the internet with some keywords, many similar videos were found in the search results. The ‘ABP NEWS’ YouTube channel has published a news report with the same video in March 2019. A tweet with similar visuals was also made by ‘ANI UP/Uttarakhand’ in 2019. So, the posted video is not a recent one.

Some photos of the same meeting are also being shared as recent visuals. However, it can be seen that the same photos were posted by Jayant Chaudhary on his Facebook account in 2019. So, all these viral visuals were taken in 2019 when RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary met BSP’s Mayawati in the context of the Lok Sabha Elections (2019). The Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), and the Samajwadi Party (SP) had an alliance in 2019.

To sum it up, 2019 visuals are being shared as a recent meeting of RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary with BSP’s Mayawati.

Share.
