A video is being shared widely on social media with a claim that it shows UP CM Yogi Adityanath singing the song – “मथुरा भी सजा देंगे” (roughly translated as Mathura will also be decorated) while travelling in his car. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video shows UP CM Yogi Adityanath singing a song that mentions the Mathura temple.
Fact: The person in the video is not UP CM Yogi Adityanath. He is Yogi Satya Nath. Many similar videos recorded in his car can be found on the Facebook account of Yogi Satya Nath. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When we searched with some keywords on the internet, we found that when another similar video went viral in 2021, ‘Info Uttar Pradesh Fact Check’ clarified that the person in that video is not UP CM Yogi Adityanath.
There are a lot of lookalikes of UP CM Yogi Adityanath on the internet. Some of them can be seen in these videos here, here, and here. So, on searching further, we found the same video on the Facebook account of Yogi Satya Nath, whose attire looks similar to that of Yogi Adityanath. Replying to a comment on his video, Yogi Satya Nath said that it is him in the video. Also, many other similar videos can be found on his account.
While the person in the video is not UP CM Yogi Adityanath, the singer Kanhiya Mittal sang the same song in front of him. The response from Yogi Adityanath can be seen here.
To sum it up, the person singing a song that mentions the Mathura temple in this video is not UP CM Yogi Adityanath.
