The video was taken when the prime minister was in Nagpur on Sunday, 11 December to flag off the Vande Bharat Express connecting Nagpur to Bilaspur.
At the time of writing this story, Reddy's tweet had garnered over 2,17,000 views.
But was Shinde really pushed?: A longer version of the same video, live streamed on PM Modi's official YouTube channel, showed that once the train left the station, Shinde stepped back. After this, Modi turns towards him and pats his upper arm, and shakes his hand.
And how did we find the video?: We did a reverse image search on some of the keyframes of the videos and came across a YouTube live stream by the official channel of PM Modi on 11 December 2022.
The video showed Modi along with Shinde, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, and others at the flagging-off ceremony of the Vande Bharat Express from Nagpur Railway Station.
At around four minutes and 30 seconds into the video, Shinde can be seen stepping back as the train leaves the platform.
At this point, Modi turns towards Shinde, pats his arm, and shakes his hand. After this, Modi waves at the public and the other ministers are seen standing behind him.
Conclusion: It is clear that Modi does not push Shinde to exclude him from the photo/video, as claimed.
