A video is going viral on social media. Users are claiming through this video that Eknath Shinde, who is the leader of the rebel MLAs of Shiv Sena, was drunk while interacting with the media.

Surya Pratap Singh IAS Rtd. captioned the viral video, “टुन्न…ड्रोन कहां है?” (Tunn…Where’s the drone). 

 

Similarly, eminent lawyer Prashant Bhushan also shared the video and captioned, Rebel Shiv Sena leader Shinde. Was drunk on power or just drunk? 

Beef Janata Party has posted the viral video with the same caption.

Several other users have also shared Shinde’s video with the same claim.

Fact Check:

After Searching on the internet about this video and Shinde, we found the same video on  NDTV India. This 6 minutes 39 seconds long video is of Surat International Airport. It can be seen that there is a huge media crowd and the police security is also tight. During this, Shinde is also seen avoiding the questions of the media.

 

A user named Shivanand Kabade has tweeted in Marathi, “the video of Eknath Shinde drinking alcohol is going viral on social media at the moment, there is no truth in it. Take this, the original full video.”

 

The same can be seen in the tweet of news agency ANI.

 

Conclusion:

DFRAC’s fact check clears that the claim of “PK” through the video about Eknath Shinde is misleading because the video is doctored, hence users are sharing this video in a misleading manner.

Claim Review: Rebel Shiv Sena leader Shinde was drunk while  talking to the media?

Claimed by: Surya Pratap Singh IAS Rtd., Prashant Bhushan and other social media users

Fact Check: Misleading
