Fact check

After cross-checking the authenticity of the video and viral claim, we got to know that the video is from March 2019. ANI UP/Uttarakhand posted the tweet inserting some pictures of Jayant Chaudhary and Mayawati’s meeting. The post was captioned by, “Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) leader Jayant Chaudhary meets Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati in Lucknow”. As we can see both the viral video and pictures are of the same meeting which took place in 2019. Therefore the viral claim is misleading.
