A video showing the newly elected Cabinet minister in the Bihar government, Tej Pratap Yadav, walking from under a tree and heading towards a lake in going viral on social media.
This 1:03 clip is being shared with a claim that it is a recent visual which was recorded after Yadav got elected as the Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change on 16 August 2022.
However, Yadav had uploaded this video on his official Instagram account almost a month before he was sworn-in as one of the Cabinet ministers in Bihar.
Users on social media are sharing the video as recent with a claim that says, "पर्यावरण वन एवं जलवायु परिवर्तन मंत्रायल मिलने के बाद तेजू भईया पहुंचे निरक्षण करने।"
[Translation: Teju Bhaiya inspects the area after becoming the Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.]
WHAT WE FOUND OUT
Yadav has around 2,27,000 followers on Instagram and he frequently uploads videos of himself.
Clearly, a video that predates Tej Pratap Yadav becoming Bihar's Cabinet minister was falsely shared as recent.
