NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be False.

Performing a Reverse Image Search, we spotted a Facebook post carrying the same viral video, dated May 15, 2023, stating that “Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s welcome”. The same video was uploaded on the Instagram page ‘eknath_shinde_fanclub’ on May 14, 2023. 

Several media reports carried the extended version of the same video  on May 2023, with the title: “CM Eknath Shinde Satara: Fleet of 8 JCBs, flowers showered on Chief Minister, warm welcome in Satara”. 

According to a news report by Lokmat, Maharashtra CM Shinde had gone to his home district Satara to launch the ‘Shasan Aaya Dari’ scheme. On the way, he was welcomed with flowers. 

Earlier, the same video was shared as a reception given to the winner of Bigg Boss OTT Season 2 Elvish Yadav and Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad Ravan

Thus, it is confirmed that an old video of Maharashtra CM Shinde’s convoy is being shared with a false claim.
