Fact Check:

In the 2-minute viral video, MPs standing next to Thirumavalavan and Ravikumar chanting, “Jeetenge Jeetenge. Later, the farmers continued to raise the same slogan Kisan Ekta (Kishan Ekta Zindabad – Kisan Ekta Zindabad) which means to live in unity. One can hear the old woman clearly pronouncing Kisan Ekta. It is as if some people combine the pronunciation with Kisan Ekta.

The slogan Kisan Ekta Zindabad is the word for unity used throughout the farmer’s struggle. Those standing near Thirumavalavan are chanting slogans including Jeetange Jeetange, Kisan Ekta Zindabad, not Khalistan Zindabad.

Those on the platform above have raised slogans against Inqilab Zindabad, anti-fascism and the rights of the farmers, in the Punjabi language. In this regard, when we asked those who know the Punjabi language, they told us that the word Khalistan did not even appear in the video.

MPs Thirumavalavan and Ravikumar have joined the farmers’ struggle and expressed their support. In addition, Kisan Ekta .. Zindabad can be clearly heard shouting.

Villupuram MP Ravikumar was informed about the viral video through WhatsApp message. We tried to contact him, but he did not answer the call. If he answers, we attach it as well.
