A video is going viral on social media. Users sharing this video are claiming that this video is of PM Modi’s rally in Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi. Where the crowd did not reach, even PM Modi did not reach Mandi because of this and rather did a virtual rally.
While sharing this video, a user named Neha Singh Rathore wrote – “People gathered at Modiji’s rally in Himachal, Modi did not reach Mandi after seeing the crowd..!” (English Translation)
It can be seen in this video that PM Modi’s address is going on and the crowd is absent. At the same time, many other users are also sharing this same video.
We did a Google search to fact-check the video going viral. We found the information that PM Modi was to come to Mandi to address the rally of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, but due to heavy rains, PM Modi’s visit was canceled. However, he addressed the rally only virtual.
According to Dainik Bhaskar’s report, people had come to the rally. Photos of crowds of people have also been published in this report.
At the same time, photos and videos of crowds of people have also been published on other news channels and websites.
It is clear from our fact check that PM Modi could not attend the Mandi rally due to heavy rains. Hence the claim that PM Modi did not come as there was not enough crowd in the rally.
