Multiple Facebook users are sharing the video with Punjabi caption.


The same claim is also viral on Twitter.

Fact Check:

On searching with the keyword, 'Delhi police, Jai jawan Jai Kisan', we found that the same video was published by The Times of India on January 27, 2021. But according to the report, the police personnel chanted 'Jai jawan, Jai Kisan' during Republic Day tractor rally to urge farmers to get back on the designated route.


Prasar Bharati News Services also tweeted the video, identifying the man sloganeering as Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police. According to the Prasar Bharati News Services, "Joint Commissioner asked Delhi Police to remain calm and peaceful while trying to ease the situation on Republic Day, chanted 'Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan."'

The Logical Indian also published the same video on January 29, 2020. According to the report, the video is of Mukarba Chowk.

Boomlive contacted Anil Mittal, Delhi Police public relations officer, who denied that 200 Delhi police officials resigned in solidarity with the farmers' protest.

Press Information Bureau Fact Check also tweeted denying claims of 200 police personnel giving resignation to support farmers protest.
