A video of a rally is being shared on social media with a claim that it shows ‘Left rally in Maharashtra in support of Delhi farmers agitation’. In Delhi, farmers are protesting the new agricultural laws brought by the Central Government. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video of a rally in Maharashtra in support of recent farmers’ protest in Delhi.
Fact: The rally video is not related to recent farmers’ protest in Delhi. The same video is being shared on the internet at least since 2018. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the screenshots of the video were run through Google Reverse Image Search, the same video was found in the search results. A user has published the same video on YouTube in April 2018. While the exact details regarding the rally in the video were not found, it can be concluded that it has no connection with the recent protests as it is found on the internet much before the new agricultural laws were passed in the Parliament.
The visuals related to the recent farmers’ protest can be seen here.
To sum it up, an old rally video is falsely shared as ‘Left rally in Maharashtra in support of Delhi farmers agitation’.
