In further search, the video was also shared by Uttar Pradesh Congress in its twitter handle in December 2021 with a claim that it was taken in Uttar Pradesh.

However, we were not able to definitively find the place, time, or the origin of the video. But we can safely conclude that the video is not taken recently in the poll bound state of Gujarat.

Conclusion

Though the video is real, we were not able to find the exact date and time when it was taken. But the video has been around for at least a year with claims that they are from Uttar Pradesh and Telangana in the past before being claimed to be from Gujarat.
