The claim is False.
NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search which led us to a video that was shared on Twitter by Ramprasad Jetty. He said the person in the video is Madhya Pradesh leader Rameshwar Sharma.
Taking a cue from this NewsMeter performed a keyword search which led us to a video broadcast by INH News on 21st August this year.
We then performed another keyword search and found an article published by Jansatta on August 22, 2021. According to the report, a video of BJP MLA Rameshwar Sharma of Huzur located in Bhopal is going viral.
Talking to the media, Rameshwar Sharma said everyone should understand that this is India. If anyone raises `Pakistan Zindabad' slogan on Indian soil, he will be crushed, he said.
We lastly compared the image of the Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and BJP MLA Rameshwar Sharma.
It is therefore evident that the viral claim is False. The man in the viral video is not Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
