Hyderabad: A video of MP Bhagwant Mann reportedly unmasking Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is doing the rounds of social media.

"Bhagwant Mann revealed the secret of Kejriwal's dramas," reads the caption of the viral post.

In the viral video, Bhagwant can be heard saying, "What does he do? Stop a bride's car and give Rs. 100 as shagun, drink tea in a dhaba, tighten loose wires in someone's house. Are all this the work of a CM?"

Fact Check

The claim is false.

NewsMeter performed a Google reverse image search which led us to a video uploaded on the Facebook page Punjabi Lok on 28 October 2021. The viral video clip can be seen at the 9:40-minute mark. In the video, Bhagwant Mann can be heard referring to Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi.

We also found the original video uploaded on the YouTube channel of Bhagwant Mann on 29 October 2021.

A few photos of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal are also attached at the end of the video. We found the image of Kejriwal, who can be seen fixing some electrical wires, in a news article published by Dainik Jagran on 7 October 2012. According to the report, the power connection of a labourer was disconnected due to non-payment of electricity bill. Arvind Kejriwal himself restored the connection. Another image of Kejriwal drinking tea was from a news report published in Amar Ujala on 22 July 2016.

It is therefore evident that the claim made through the viral post is false. The viral video shows MP Mann referring to Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and not Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
