On January 02, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of Major Dhyanchand Sports University in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. PM Modi congratulated the youth of Uttar Pradesh for the first sports university of UP. It will be built at the cost of Rs 700 crore. Meanwhile, a video is increasingly viral on social media. In the viral video, people create ruckus and vandalise a stage. People can be seen throwing chairs and tearing banners. While sharing this video, people on social media claimed that it was taken after BJP workers clashed with each other for wages after the Prime Minister's rally in Meerut.

Claim:

BJP workers clashed with each other for wages.

Several Twitter users while mocking BJP party shared this video with a Hindi caption that reads, "#मोदी की #मेरठ_रैली के बाद #भाजपा कार्यकर्ता आज की #दिहाड़ी के लिए आपस में प्यार बांटते हुये."

[English Translation: BJP workers sharing love with each other for daily wage after Modi's Meerut rally.]

Fact Check:

The Logical Indian fact check team verified the claim and found it to be false. The viral video is from January 2021 and was shot during the CM Khattar rally.

We extracted different keyframes of the shared video using the InVid tool and ran a google reverse image search. We found the viral video in a report of ABP news dated January 10 2021. The title of the video report reads, "Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar blames Congress for Karnal protest." According to the report, the viral video is from Karnal, Haryana. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had called a mahapanchayat in Karnal, after which farmers protested against this and created a ruckus. At 41 seconds of the video report, we can see the footage similar to the viral video.

On searching more, we found the still of the viral video in a report of Haribhoomi dated January 10, 2021. The title of the report reads in Hindi, "देश में प्रदर्शन-हरियाणा में महापंचायत रैली पर बवाल, देखें कैसे सीएम खट्टर के मंच पर किसानों ने मचाया उत्पात".

[English Translation: Demonstration in the country - Ruckus over Mahapanchayat rally in Haryana, see how farmers created ruckus on CM Khattar's stage.]

According to the report, a Kisan Mahapanchayat rally was called by the BJP in the Kamila village of Karnal district. In the rally, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar was going to address the farmers about the benefits of the new agricultural laws. The farmers also raised slogans against the BJP-led government.

We also found the viral video footage in a report on India TV dated January 10 2021. The title of the report reads in Hindi, "Haryana: करनाल में बवाल के बाद CM खट्टर का महापंचायत रद्द, हम विरोध करेंगे." [English translation: Haryana: CM Khattar's Mahapanchayat was cancelled after an uproar in Karnal, we will protest.]

We also compared the video report of India TV with the viral video. Below you can see the comparison.

Conclusion:

To sum up, an old video dated back to January 2021 where protesters vandalised the stage before the meeting of CM Khattar in Karnal, Haryana, due to the farmers' agitation is falsely shared as BJP workers fighting with each other for wages after Prime Minister's rally in Meerut. Hence, the viral claim is false.
