Anchor Chitra Tripathi discussing the NEWS 24 survey about the upcoming Lok Sabha election video is fake!


How is this truth coming out? It seems that the BJP has stopped their payment due to fear of defeat. Is this why the truth is coming out of your mouth? Is it true that NDA is losing?




The one-minute, fifteen-second viral video features TV anchor Chitra Tripathi calling out Prime Minister Narendra Modi and explaining a News 24 survey that included pictures and data showing that more than 80% of respondents preferred an I.N.D.I.A win for the coalition in the impending 2024 elections.

In the video, she is heard saying, “Right now, all of the nation’s surveys are squeezing Prime Minister Narendra Modi like arrows. Not to mention that there’s not much time left for him to pick up his bag and leave. The power of the I.N.D.I.A alliance has been roused by the BJP and RSS.  Despite the excitement surrounding the election, News 24 conducted a survey and polling of the public regarding the 2024 elections. When asked which alliance between the NDA and the opposition appeared to be dominant, more than 80 percent of respondents indicated it was the opposition alliance. NDA was only able to secure 14% of the vote.”

She added, “The survey has caused BJP leaders so much anxiety that their shoulders have dropped. The results of this survey demonstrate that the nation’s citizens are tired of the PM. Take a look at what the Modi government brought to the nation: inflation under the guise of development, youth unemployment under the guise of employment, and farmers being beaten up by promises of double income. Women’s honor was violated, hundreds of food providers were killed on the streets, and those who asked questions were forced to wear handcuffs. Sold the nation to several wealthy individuals. It’s finally happened—the list of crimes committed by this government is so long that people are afraid of it. The nation’s populace now wishes to carry out Modi ji’s wish to wear the Jola. India will triumph when it unites.” These posts are shared with a claim that, “Why is the truth coming out? Did the BJP stop their payment due to fear of defeat?” You can view similar claim posts here and here.

What’s the truth?

We began our analysis by searching for pertinent keywords and all of the keyframes on Google, which took us to the original YouTube video.

Under the title “Dangal: Chitra Tripathi tangled with Manojit Mandal | Manipur Viral Video | Manipur Violence Updates,” this video was uploaded on July 21, 2023. As we were watching the video, we observed that the part that went viral starts at about 2 minutes and 6 seconds into the original clip. Also, her outfit matches exactly the pink costume in the viral video.

During that time of speech, we discovered that she was responding to panelist Manojit Mandal, who had accused Aaj Tak of failing to report on the ethnic violence in Manipur, rather than discussing any surveys or the impending election.

The visuals from this video have been superimposed with a fake audio clip featuring Chitra Tripathi forecasting a Congress win in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections based on a News24 survey.

Furthermore, we were unable to locate any such survey that News 24 had released.
With all of this information, it is evident that the widely shared viral video of TV anchor Chitra Tripathi talking about Congress’s win in the upcoming election is phony and untrue.


Thus, we deduce that the widely shared video featuring TV anchor Chitra Tripathi was recorded during the Manipur violence debate show and circulated with fabricated audio.

Despite what the widely circulated claim implies, she doesn’t actually talk about any election polls.
