Did PM Modi claim Karnataka people are sinning? No, the viral video is clipped!

Claim

Mirrors have sinned! Is this statement of Prime Minister Modi an embarrassment of the defeat in the assembly elections? Or is it the frustration that Kannadigas are rejecting the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections? Who has really sinned, For 5 years, your 25 MPs have been supreme sinners. This is the holy land where Basavanna was born. Those who are creating hatred, jealousy, and communal conflict here are sinners and not Kannadigas.

Explanation

General elections in India are scheduled to take place seven times between April 19, 2024, and June 1, 2024. The results will be released to the public on June 4, 2024, following the vote-counting process. The first and second phases of the Lok Sabha election have finally wrapped. With India preparing for the third phase, both parties are running strong back-to-back campaigns.

In this case, a 12-second video is shared where we see PM Modi addressing a rally. Here, we hear him say “ ‘Ye Karnataka wolo ne jo paap kiya hai’  which is roughly translated in English as ‘Karnataka people have sinned this time.’ This post is shared with a claim stating that “Mirrors have sinned! Is this statement of Prime Minister Modi an embarrassment of the defeat in the assembly elections? Or is it the frustration that Kannadigas are rejecting the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections? Who has sinned, For 5 years, your 25 MPs have been supreme sinners. This is the holy land where Basavanna was born. Those who are creating hatred, jealousy, and communal conflict here are sinners and not Kannadigas.” Come let’s check if the claim post is true.

What’s the truth?

We began by dissecting the video of the widely shared keyframes, which directed us to the original footage that PM Modi’s YouTube account had been live streaming. Throughout watching the entire video, we discovered that the statement “Ye Karnataka wolo ne jo paap kiya hai” occurs approximately 32 minutes in. However, PM Modi first discussed how the Congress had failed Karnataka’s farmers before uttering these words.

We have added the excerpt of the speech for easy understanding. Modi said, “The betrayal that the Congress has committed with the farmers here, that’s an enormous sin. When the BJP was in power here, Rs 10,000 would get deposited in farmers’ bank accounts. The Congress government, the moment it came to power, stopped paying Rs 4,000. They received the votes. Now they don’t care about the farmers. Farmers now only receive the Rs 6,000 that Modi sends them. They cut their share. But you will continue to receive the money under the PM-Kisan Samman Nidhi.”

After the above speech, he continued by commenting, “Ye Karnataka wolo ne jo paap kiya hai.” This indicates that contrary to what the widely circulated rumor implies, he was speaking of the Karnataka administration that was established by the Congress.

All the above information confirms and clarifies that PM Modi didn’t accuse the people of Karnataka of sinning rather he was talking about the Karnataka government.

Conclusion:

Therefore, we deduce that the widely circulated rumor that PM Modi claimed that Karnataka people were sinning is misleading. The viral video is actually clipped and circulated with false information.
