Is this true?: This claim is false.

  • The video shows a rally of Bharat Adivasi Party (BAP) candidate, Rajkumar Roat from Banswara, Rajasthan in April.


How did we find out?: We divided the viral video into multiple keyframes and ran a Google reverse image on some of them.

  • We came across a post on X (formerly Twitter) by Dr Jitendra Meena, whose, bio read "National Spokesperson - Bharat Adivasi Party (BAP)."

  • The user uploaded the same video as the viral clip. Here are the similarities.

  • He uploaded the video with the caption, "The people of Dungarpur-Banswara now want change and Bharat Adivasi Party and will bring change this time and elect Rajkumar Roat."

  • Similarly, a video on Rajkumar Roat's YouTube channel also included frames similar to those of the viral video. The video was uploaded on 4 April.

  • Apart from these, many other X users uploaded the same clip as the viral video, writing that it showed Roat's rally. You can see those clips here and here.

  • According to the Times of India (TOI), Roat filed his nomination for the Banswara seat in Rajasthan.


Banswara Seat: The Banswara seat has become a point of contention between the BAP and Congress. While the Congress had earlier decided to be in alliance with BAP in Banswara, friction remains amongst the candidates.

Conclusion: A video of BAP candidate Rajkumar Roat's rally in Banswara is falsely being shared as one from Indore showing an anti-Modi rally.
