A video of several people on the street and on bullock carts protesting against Prime Minister Narendra Modi goes viral on social media.
What's the claim?: The claim states that the clip shows a protest happening in poll-bound Karnataka during Modi's recent visit to the state. The state is going to elections on 10 May.
PM Modi visited Karnataka on 12 March to attend programmes in Mandya and Hubballi-Dharwad.
What's the truth?: The video dates back to 2021, when the Shiv Sena protested against the price hike of petrol and diesel in Maharashtra.
How did we find out the truth?: We broke down the video into multiple keyframes and performed a reverse image search on some of them.
This led us to a YouTube video shared by a Marathi news channel called Lokpradhan News on 5 February 2021.
The video shows members of Shiv Sena protesting in Maharashtra's Hingoli in February 2021.
It also carries an interview of Shiv Sena MLA Santosh Bangar, who states that residents and farmers of Hingoli, along with their bullock carts, are protesting against the central government for rising the price of petrol.
We also compared the viral video with the YouTube video and found similarties.
The reports also carried an image of the protest similar to the viral video.
The article by Sakal stated that a bullock cart procession to protest against the price hike of petrol, diesel and gas started from the Shiv Sena office in Hingoli.
Conclusion: An old video from Maharashtra is being falsely shared as video showing a protest against PM Modi in Karnataka.
