What is the truth?
We ran keywords and found original live streamed video in Ashok Gehlot’s official YouTube Channel posted on 22, November 2023. In this video we see Ashok Gehlot, Rajasthan CM addressing the rally in Malpura(Tonk), Rajasthan.
While addressing the rally, he was sharing poll promises to the audience for the upcoming state legislative assembly. The viral video portion is seen at the timestamp between 2:10 to 2:30 minutes in the video, but there are no ‘Modi- Modi’ slogans in the original video. This part of the video is clipped, edited and is being shared with false claims.
It is clear that the audio of ‘Modi-Modi’ slogan has been edited and added to Ashok Gehlot video. Therefore the viral video is fake.
