Fact Check: Does This Video Show Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman Chatting with Her Father? Here’s the Truth


A video of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman chatting with an elderly man is widely circulating on social media. Some users say that the finance minister is talking to her father at his “simple” house.

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “Simplicity at Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s father’s house. A father accords a royal traditional welcome to his daughter which she politely sidesteps and introduces her colleagues to her father”

Here’s the link to the above post


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

Doing a Reverse Image Search of keyframes extracted from the InVid Tool, we found a Facebook page that carried the same viral video on December 4, 2022, with a caption: “The house where Maha Kavi Bharatiyar lived while raising Tamil in Kashi”.

The same vial video has been uploaded on the official Instagram page of Nirmala Sitharaman with a caption: “Visited Siva Madam in Varanasi yesterday and interacted with the family members of Mahakavi Bharathiyar, including his 96-year-old great nephew Shri K. V. Krishnan.”

On December 3, 2022, images from Sitharaman’s visit and interaction with Mahakavi Bharathiyar’s family members were also released on her official Twitter handle. 

Thus, it is evident that Nirmala Sitharam’s visit to Mahakavi Bharathiyar’s family is being shared with false claims.
