What’s the truth?

We started our analysis with a pertinent keyword search on Google. This took us to the YouTube channel of Punya Prasun Bajpai. We can see numerous videos of him discussing political and governmental topics on this channel.

Punya Prasun Bajpai was formerly a journalist associated with ABP. He came out in 2018 as a result of his criticism of the Modi administration.

We noticed that the former journalist used the book covers of the subjects he covered in his background when we were examining his YouTube channel. This indicates that in addition to using the images of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi as covers, he also uses the image of Prime Minister Modi when talking about pertinent subjects.

For the benefit of the reader, we have included a video below where PM Modi and Amit Shah’s faces appear on book covers in his background.

Also, we have circled the book covers showing Modi and Amit Shah from the screenshot taken from the video.

All of this information indicates and validates that the journalist keeps images of the subject and the person behind his laptop screen and book covers on his YouTube videos.


To sum up, the viral claim stating former journalist Punya Prasun Bajpai used Rahul and Sonia images on book covers in his video is shared with misleading narratives.

Actually, in all of his videos, he has images of people who are relevant to the topic of discussion as book covers behind him.
