Is this true?: The claim is false as the video is edited.

  • In the original video, Naidu was asked by reporters whether his party, TDP, would come to power, and he replied, "100 percent."


How did we find out?: We broke down the clip into a few screenshots and ran a reverse image search on some of them on Google.

  • We came across a post by the news agency Asian News International (ANI) on their X (formerly Twitter) page from 13 May.

  • It was Chandrababu Naidu's byte to the news outlet after casting his vote in Guntur in the fourth phase of polling for the ongoing elections.

What did Naidu say to ANI?: In the byte given to ANI, Naidu said, "It is our responsibility to cast our vote and demand a bright future."

  • Following this, a reporter asked the politician whether TDP would come to power in Andhra Pradesh, to which Naidu replied, "100 percent."

A part of the audio in the original video has been edited to falsely claim that Naidu said incumbent CM of the YSRCP will come back to power.

Conclusion: The video has been edited. Naidu replied to a reporter's question whether his party - TDP - would win in Andhra Pradesh.
