A video is being shared on social media claiming it as the visuals of US Vice President Kamala Harris’s remarks in Hindi, during her recent meeting with PM Narendra Modi in Washington. The video shows Kamala Harris explaining her elopement story in Hindi. On 23 September 2021, PM Narendra Modi met the first Indian-American Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, marking the first in-person meeting of Modi and the highest-ranking Indian American in US history.  Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

Claim: Video of US Vice President Kamala Harris explaining her elopement story with PM Narendra Modi.

Fact: The video shared in the post is an edited one. This video was created by replacing the audio in the original video of US Vice President Kamala Harris and Narendra Modi bilateral meeting with that of an eloped couple. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When we searched to check whether US Vice President Kamala Harris had made these remarks during her recent bilateral meeting with PM Narendra Modi, it is found out that VP Kamala Harris had not made any such statements. During the bilateral meeting with PM Narendra Modi, Kamala Harris made her remarks in the English language. Kamala Harris during her speech did not utter a single word in Hindi.

When we hear the background audio carefully, a woman is heard explaining the reasons for her elopement. On searching for the original video of this audio clip using keywords, we found the original video on the ‘News Express’ YouTube channel. This video shows a girl explaining the reasons for her elopement with her boyfriend. Several social media users have shared this video as a meme. They can be seen here and here.

To sum it up, this video of US Vice President Kamala Harris explaining her elopement story with Narendra Modi in Hindi is edited, and created by replacing the audio.
