Fact Check: 2023 Clip Of Nirmala Sitharaman’s Press Conference Viral As Recent


A video of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman — responding curtly to a journalist’s question during a press conference after the 2024 Budget, is doing the rounds on social media.

The post reads: “That arrogant face. Watch this. Nirmala Sitharaman held a press conference & a journalist asked a question about Budget. She went arrogant. Look at blood boiling expressions. A neutral media would ripped this govt apart into pieces for this. #Budget2024.”

Here is the link to the above post.


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

The NM team spotted the logo of Brut in the top right corner of the clip. We found the original video on the YouTube channel of Brut India, dated February 1, 2023, with a title: “This was FM’s reply when a journalist tried to convey the Opposition’s view on Budget.”

The same video was also shared by the The Economic Times in 2023. The video description reads: ‘Next question please!’ says FM Nirmala Sitharaman to journalist seeking reaction to Opposition claims of ‘Budget not good enough for middle-class’.

Thus, it is clear that the 2023 video is misleading.
