Fact Check: Clip Of Farmers’ March To National Capital on Republic Day in 2021 Goes Viral As Recent


A video showing several tractors gathered near a toll plaza is doing the rounds on social media. Many users claim that farmers are on their way to New Delhi for the ongoing farmers’ protests.

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

“Just been sent this by an Indian follower with caption:

‘Indian Farmers on their way to seize New Delhi’

It’s a global fightback against the globalists & climate communism designed to encapsulate all land & resource in handing it over to the state.”…/status/1757463329189089595

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

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team traced a Facebook post on an unverified profile, dated January 25, 2021. The video matches with the viral clip, suggesting that it is from the 2021 farmers’ protest in the national capital. 

Checking further, we spotted a news article in The New Indian Express, dated January 7, 2021. The toll booth image in the article matches with one of the viral clips, saying that the farmers’ tractor march at the western peripheral highway.

Reuters, too, covered the farmers’ march to the Red Fort on Republic Day in 2021, and the image used in the report is identical with one of the viral images. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming to show farmers on their way towards Delhi amidst the ongoing protest, is MISLEADING.
