Fact Check:

The claim is misleading.

NewsMeter conducted a Google search for information related to the viral video and found several news articles reporting similar scenes in 2020. According to these reports, Anil Kumar Yadav, who was touring Nellore during his tenure as a minister in February 2020, faced anger. He was encircled by the Muslim community for expressing his views on the CAA issue. The scenes that are going viral are related to this event. Many of the articles that shared these scenes back can be found here.




However, several Telugu news organizations share it as a recent event.



Meanwhile, we found several news articles reporting that YSCRCP leaders have faced criticism for 'Gadapa Gadapa Ku Mana Prabuthvam,' started by YSCRCP. But there are no reports about Anil Kumar Yadav being encircled by Muslims recently.
