What is the truth?: The BSP rally took place in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh and not Telangana.
Additionally, news reports mentioned that it was a peaceful march from Ambedkar Park to Raj Bhawan on the occasion of World Tribal Day to raise voices against atrocities against Dalits and tribals.
How did we find out?: We conducted a Google reverse image search and came across a similar video on Facebook. It was posted by one Shubham Singh Bouddh whose bio read, "Assembly President Timarni BSP, District Harda MP."
The video was uploaded on 17 September with the caption to prepare for victory and hashtags such as #BSP, #Bhopal, #AkashAnand (national coordinator of BSP and party supremo Mayawati's nephew), etcetera.
With a relevant keyword search, we came across news reports from August by Dainik Bhaskar and Free Press Journal that noted a peaceful march from Ambedkar Maidan to Raj Bhawan was conducted on the occasion of World Tribal Day in Bhopal.
They reported that the rally was stopped by the Bhopal police ahead of reaching the Raj Bhawan.
Further, we matched a building in the viral video with Google Maps street view. We viewed the route between Ambedkar Maidan and Raj Bhawan and came across similarities.
