Fact Check: 2021 Clip Of Punjab AAP MLA Running Away From Disgruntled Farmers Viral As Recent


A video showing Aam Aadmi Party’s Nihalsinghwala assembly MLA, Manjeet Singh Bilaspur, arguing with few people is doing the rounds on social media. Many users claim that the MLA ran away when people started asking him questions about the work he had done for his constituency. Many others have also linked it to the ongoing farmers’ protest in Delhi.

A Facebook user posted the viral post with the following caption: 

ਆਮ ਆਦਮੀ ਪਾਰਟੀ ਦੇ ਐਲ ਐਮ ਏ ਮਨਜੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਬਿਲਾਸਪੁਰ ਦੀ ਲੋਕਾ ਨੇ ਬਣਾਈ ਰੇਲ, ਜੁੱਤੀਆ ਤੋ ਡਰਦਾ ਭੱਜ ਕੇ ਗੱਡੀ ਚ ਬੈਠ ਗਿਆ, ਗੰਨਮੈਨ ਵੀ ਵਿਚਾਰਾ ਮਸਾਂ ਬੈਠਿਆ ਚਲਦੀ ਗੱਡੀ ਚ, ਡਲਾ ਤੋ ਡਲਾ ਹੋਤਾ ਹੈ ਕਿਆ ਪਤਾ ਕਿਧਰ ਸੇ ਚਲਾ ਹੋਤਾ ਹੈ,,


Aam Aadmi Party’s LMA Manjit Singh Bilaspur people made a train, afraid of shoes he ran away and sat in the car, gunman is also sitting in a moving car, from dala to dala who knows from where it starts,,

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

Running a Google Keyword Search about the incident, our team traced a news report in Jansatta, dated August 27, 2021. The banner image matches with one of the keyframes of the viral video, describing that the incident happened in 2021 when Singh encountered the disgruntled farmers in the Moga district of Punjab.

We also came across a YouTube video from the same day, on the official channel of News24. Here, the video matches exactly with the viral clip. So, it cannot be linked to the ongoing farmers’ protest. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming Punjab AAP MLA Manjeet Singh ran away from the disgruntled farmers in Moga recently, is misleading.
