Fact Check: Video From Pune Shared As Empty Chairs At PM Modi’s Jamnagar Rally


A video is being shared on social media suggesting that rows of empty seats were seen at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally in Jamnagar, Gujarat, with several people leaving the venue while PM Modi was speaking.

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “Gujarat Model A crowd of lakhs gathered at Modiji’s rally to see him. The chairs remained empty, but Modiji finished his work and left. Modiji, maybe the people need more money to attend the rally. Lakhs of people gathered to listen to Modiji’s speech in Jamnagar, Gujarat. See how it is jam-packed! #Rajputs_Boycott_Bjp”

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

Searching with keywords, the NM team traced a video of Prime Minister Modi’s recent rally in Jamnagar, uploaded on his official YouTube channel, dated May 2, 2024, showing him wearing a golden turban and a grey jacket.

However, the viral video shows Modi wearing a red turban and sky blue jacket, contradicting the original video. Although the Jamnagar rally took place during the day, the viral video depicts an evening sky, implying it was manipulated from the same event.

Further investigation revealed that the viral video was actually a manipulated clip from a rally in Pune, Maharashtra, which was shared on Twitter on April 30.

The viral video was actually taken from PM Modi’s address in Pune on April 29, which was uploaded to his official YouTube channel. In the original video, he is seen wearing a red turban and sky-blue jacket, matching the viral video.

Thus, it is evident from the above information that the viral video is NOT from Jamnagar in Gujarat, but Pune in Maharashtra.
