An 18-second video is increasingly viral on social media. In the viral video, many people can be seen vandalising a stage, holding sticks in their hands, throwing chairs and tearing the banners. The banner has a BJP party (Lotus) symbol and photographs of some leaders. While sharing this video, people on social media claimed that the viral video is after the announcement of the withdrawal of Farm Laws.

A Facebook user while sharing this video wrote a caption in Hindi which reads, "लो भाई तीनों कृषि कानूनों के वापसी की घोषणा के बाद रुझान आने शुरू...कोई गोदी मीडिया नहीं दिखायेगा."

[English Translation: Brothers, after the announcement of the withdrawal of all three farm laws, the trends started coming...No godi media will show this.]
