Explanation

A 30-second video shows a man distributing chickens and liquor bottles to the people one by one. The post comes with an insinuated claim that the Congress is distributing chickens and liquor for votes in the Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh elections.

What’s the truth?

In our search, we found another version of this video from ANI’s X handle.

The post was made on October 4th 2022 along with captions that chickens and liquor were distributed by Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) leader Rajanala Srihari to celebrate the launch of a new national party by their party heads the following day. As reported, Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) was launched on 5th October 2022.

Many news outlets such as India Today, ABP, Hindustan Times have reported about this distribution which state about the launch of the new party on Dusshera marking the entry of Telangana Chief Minister and TRS leader K.Chandrashekar Rao in national politics.

From this, we can confirm that distribution of chicken and liquor was not done by Congress and it was not done for assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh or even Telangana for that matter. This was done by BRS leader (then TRS) Rajanala Srihari to celebrate the launch of a new national party by K.Chandrashekar Rao.

Earlier, the same video was shared with different misinformation that BJP was distributing chicken and liquor during Karnataka elections which can be seen here and here.

Conclusion:

The claims that Congress distributed chicken and liquor for gaining votes in the ongoing assembly elections are false. This video is from Telangana when TRS leader Rajanala Srihari organised this distribution to celebrate the launch of BRS.
