Fact Check: 2019 Video of Scuffle Between BJP Leaders Viral As Recent One From Rajasthan


The video of a scuffle between few people in a meeting or a conference room is doing the rounds on social media, claiming that BJP leaders are beating each other with shoes in Rajasthan.

The post reads: “राजस्थान में बीजेपी का पहला रुझान देखिए कैसे स्वागत किया जा रहा है”

Here’s the link to the above post.


NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be Misleading.

Running the keyframes from the video through Reverse Image Search, our team found the same video shared by a journalist in 2019. The tweet, dated March 6, 2019, describes: “UP’s Sant Kabir Nagar BJP MP Sharad Tripathi attacked local BJP MLA Rakesh Baghel with shoe during a public meeting after an altercation began over the MP’s name missing from inauguration plate.”

Also, our NewsMobile report, dated March 6, 2019, had established that the incident took place in Uttar Pradesh’s Sant Kabir Nagar about 200 km from Lucknow where BJP MP Sharad Tripathi and BJP MLA Rakesh Singh got involved in a scuffle. The two lawmakers were arguing over the placement of names on a foundation stone of a project.

News wire ANI UP tweeted the same video on March 6, 2019.

NewsMobile debunked the same video in 2022, when it was shared as AAP leaders fighting ahead of the Gujarat Elections.

Hence, the above information proves that the viral video is old and the claim is misleading.
