BJP has won Legislative Assembly elections in three states- Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh. A lot of misinformation is getting spread on social media regarding Rajasthan state after winning the elections. We also came across one such video. In the video, a train carrying JCB can be seen going from Uttar Pradesh to Rajasthan. Users are linking this video with elections and claiming that with the BJP returning to power in Rajasthan, bulldozers are sending to Rajasthan from Uttar Pradesh.
A claim made by a user
An X user named @PareekPremsukh shared the video and wrote “The train has left from Uttar Pradesh to Rajasthan. See for yourself what it is carrying”. (Translated in English)
The claim made by other users
Many other users also shared the same video while making similar claims.
To investigate the truth behind the viral video, the DFRAC team converted the video into some keyframes and reverse-searched it on Google. We found the same video was uploaded on a YouTube channel named GopiRailworld on November 26, 2021. In the description, it is mentioned “JCB’s on BOMN Train, Arriving Main to Loop line at Tenali Junction”.
Therefore, it is clear from the DFRAC’s fact-check that the claim made by the users that the train was going from UP to Rajasthan is misleading as this is an old video from Tenali junction in Andhra Pradesh and the video is unrelated to the elections.
